Jacob Martinez

Jacob Martinez is just another 90's kid who grew up on StarCraft and Photoshop. His obsession with computer animation began with Macromedia Flash, where he first learned the concepts of key-framing and building animated UI's. That ultimately led to his fascination with 3D. He studied VFX in school and currently works as a Pipeline TD in the VFX industry.

While researching ways of incorporating 3D and live music visuals he discovered the power of TouchDesigner. He started building 3D scenes and through the API, taught himself Python and how to build simple interfaces to control various effects. Today he is quite familiar with 3D and animation within Touch Designer and loves to experiment with 3D scenes in particular. His current interests are in developing new tools to help facilitate 3D pipelines in TD.
