This workshop will revolve around three projects that were developed collaboratively by Rémi Lapierre, Yan Breuleux, and Alain Thibeault. The technical aspects of interfacing TouchDesigner with different devices for live performances will be presented.
This workshop will address the following projects:
Les planètes, a live concert performed in a dome with piano accompaniment. This piece involves interfacing TouchDesigner with a concert piano (Disklavier), drawing live in the dome using the HTC VIVE, and simulating the dome in VR with the HTC VIVE for testing.
Enigma, a live performance that involves nine screens. In relation to this project the presenters will discuss the process of interfacing controls with TouchOSC, interfacing with Live, controlling the performance with MIDI and OSC, and simulating the experience in VR.
StudioVR, a virtual cinema studio for creating camera animation for 3D movies using TouchDesigner and the HTC VIVE.
This workshop will close with instruction on importing, playing, and controlling assets from other 3D software by FBX in TouchDesigner in addition to mapping controls on HTC VIVE controllers for timeline controls, teleportation, playback recording, and exporting camera animation in other software (i.e. Maya).
