[TDSW] TouchDesigner 030 Interactive Particles with Kaoru

TDSW is hosting a TouchDesigner workshop titled Interactive Particles with Kaoru!

About this Event

Can you believe it's July now? Half of 2020 has passed already. We will hit 10th online events this time. We choose Particles x Interaction as a theme for this workshop. We will work on interactive particles that we are so familiar with but lots of possibilities.

We will finally welcome Kaoru Tanaka as our first instructor of July! Her generative art always looks attractive on Instagram (@velvet_kaoru) and she is going to share her techniques with particles on TouchDesigner. We can find her style through her artworks and we hope this workshop would help you find your own, too. Don't miss this opportunity!


We just started our Patreon. You can watch all of our live streaming workshops with the TDSW Excellent plan for $35/month. Please give it some consideration if you are going to continue taking our workshops as we will have two online events per month.
