By this point, NVIDIA Maxine has been out for about a year, but TouchDesigner developers sometimes look over its AI features. Maxine has valuable qualities that allow you to do fancy camera tricks without needing a Kinect sensor and does so using GPU-accelerated processes.

We recently discussed the rise of Virtual Production as one of the most promising fields in terms of audiovisual creation. Without a doubt it’s been a game-changer, and because it’s so deeply technology-driven we could dare to say that its state of the art is ever evolving.

 3D Projection Mapping in TouchDesigner.jpg

Of the techniques available for projection mapping, 3D projection mapping is one of the more interesting and accurate options available. Instead of relying on drawing masks, 3D projection mapping uses a 3D model of the projection surface, a virtual camera and some math to calibrate the projection.

Have you ever wanted to stream YouTube videos or other video platforms directly into TouchDesigner? Previously this was kind of possible, but the performance of the playback wasn’t anything to write home about and it was technically impossible to do any meaningful audio routing.

The orange blossom flower was everywhere, with that wind that took it away, and then swathed it back to the blue alleys or derbs as they are called. And when its fragrance came back, as an affirmative response, the answer of a folk melody, I remembered the days of calmness.

There are a ton of ways that Python is integrated with operators in TouchDesigner. We all have likely referenced channel values, DAT tables, or controlled our operators with Python. As you work on larger projects, the organizational features of Python start to become incredibly useful.

With the new 2022 official release of TouchDesigner, one of the most developer-requested features is the ability to add comments directly into your network. This was previously something you had to do by dropping Text DATs around the project, but it was neither intuitive, clean, nor easy to use.
