Touching Typography - Case 2: Cache Grid For Beginners & Intermediate


In this tutorial series we are exploring certain ways of animating text using Touchdesigner. Where our multiple tutorial series 'Kinetic Typography' focuses on building an actual text tool for iterating typographic animations quickly, this series is more focused on examples from the field. Unfortunately, a lot of these typographic animations are pre baked. We're rebuilding the animation in Touchdesigner and will add a real-time element to it.

This second case is looking at what we would like to call 'cashing grid'. It uses the cacheTOP to give the subanimations a slight delay, which gives the overall animation a nice 'swing'.

We're going to use the cache technique a lot with the cacheTOP and cacheSelectTOP and will be sculpting a custom animation with the animationCOMP.
