Touchdesigner – Interactive Media Design

Welcome to Touchdesigner, a visual programming tool for making interactive moving images.

We will start from the beginning, teaching the basics to get started and then making our way to a point where fun can be had in creative flow. We will discuss ways to create movement in 2D and 3D graphics using fun ideas in unique ways.

Let’s play with cameras and move our bodies to animate images with vibrant colours and textures.
