TouchDesigner InSession


We are excited to announce TouchDesigner InSession, a streamed event where up to 3 community members can review their projects with Derivative’s staff to address questions, problems and optimization challenges. The idea is of course to help people with their work but it is also intended to be instructive for the rest of the community watching the stream and learning best-practices from TouchDesigner developers.

Join us this Friday February 4th for the 18th episode of InSession with our very special guest David Braun who  will be joining us from Stanford's Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics where he is currently a Masters student. A software developer and artist working with real-time interactive media, audiovisual design, and machine learning David is legendary in our community  for his many contributions. On Friday we will be taking a deep dive into two of the frameworks David has published for TouchDesigner: Faust (Faust (Audio Processing) for TouchDesigner) and ChucK (ChucKDesigner - Music Programming For Intermediate). From the Derivative team hosts Markus Heckmann and Isabelle Rousset will be joined by Greg Hermanovic and Malcolm Bechard for an optimized under the hood session. 

Please note the new time of 14:00 EST

Check out the recordings of InSession (above) and read on to learn more and how to participate.

How It Works

TouchDesigner InSession will take place every three weeks. The format will be to have three consecutive participants each consult for up to 30 minutes with one or more members of our team. The event will be live-streamed and we encourage the community at large to tune in and ask their own questions in the chat. 
To apply, please fill out and submit this registration form. Before submitting please read carefully:
  • Incomplete registrations will not be considered. (“More info to come…” is not good enough.)
  • The session will be streamed online to the whole community. Make sure there is nothing secret in your project that you don’t want to reveal or you are not allowed to share.
  • We will use the latest Official and Experimental builds. Let us know what your project was created with.
  • Make sure your linked project or .tox file runs out of the box. For example be sure that any paths are relative to your project file.
  • If at all possible, break out issues with your project into smaller examples.
  • We encourage you to use TouchDesigner’s sample assets where possible.
  • Please be considerate of download sizes. A GB per project is too big.
The next session is scheduled for:
Friday, February 4th at 14:00 EST. 

We look forward to receiving your submissions and getting TouchDesigner InSession online and direct to the community! See you soon.
