This talk will help you get the most out of TouchDesigner’s built-in features and teach you how to develop your application without reinventing the wheel. Participants will learn how to rapidly develop a UI for managing portable and reusable generative content as well as how to automatically import and export content collections. Additionally, attendees will be exposed to several approaches for using ‘presets’. By the end of this presentation you will be able to avoid incompatibility between old content and new features and will discover the practical uses of often overlooked features like tags and comments. Attendees will also learn how to hack components from the palette.
