Attention: This workshop is Windows only.
TouchDesigner is a tool that gains popularity among musicians who want to create visuals for their music and do audio-visual experiments. In this workshop you will be guided through the integration of visual sensors into the TouchDesigner environment. We will work with Kinect in particular but the techniques will be applicable to other sensors as well.
Those without a Kinect sensor can follow the course by using provided recordings of sensor data. You will be able to play them back via Kinect Studio software, which will act as a sensor input for TouchDesigner. The main requirement for this course, however, is a Windows machine, as Kinect Studio is only supported on this platform.
Workshop will be led by Masha Rozhnova & Dániel Molnár
