TouchDesigner InSession 2.0

Join us this Friday May 22 for a scintillating 2nd edition of InSession as Derivative developers tackle projects and questions on the topics of Robots, Ableton, Shader Park, Ray Marching and optimizing on all counts for TouchDesigner. 

Featured Participants and Projects

  • Artist and VTPro Design Director Akiko Yamashita joins with VT’s Robot Music Project which uses a 6-axis robot to drive Ableton’s audio. Aki’s questions include recording audio from Ableton and video from TouchDesigner in sync and collaborating with people on the Ableton side without them having to install TouchDesigner.
  • Torin Blankensmith and Peter Whidden, developers of Shader Park - an opensource web platform for creating real-time 3D ray-marched graphics using code that is accessible and inclusive for artists, designers, and educators. The session will revolve around Torin’s and Peter’s work on a TouchDesigner component which allows Shader Park code to be used as a generator for GLSL materials. Tune in to find out more about this exciting development!

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, MAY 22nd AT 14:00 EST
See you Friday and we look forward to hearing your questions and ideas in the chat!
