TouchDesigner Video Tutorials

Why TouchDesigner videos?

After years of working on some of the largest TouchDesigner installations in the world, I wanted to make a new platform for high quality video tutorials and workshops. I’ve seen a lot of success and excitement around the few online live workshops I’ve hosted, but even with those there were a ton of people who couldn’t attend or wanted to try and purchase the workshop videos after the fact. This is why I created my series of free TouchDesigner Beginner Video Tutorials as well as our paid TouchDesigner Training platform: The HQ PRO.

TouchDesigner Beginner Tutorial Series

If you’re a TouchDesigner Beginner, check out our TouchDesigner Tutorial Series!

We teach you all the basics of how to use TouchDesigner, including mouse controls, hotkeys, parameters, the operator families, and more.

What’s available?

I’ll be posting video tutorials/workshops every other week covering many different topics. I’ll have general workshops for beginners, demonstrations of techniques for intermediate users, and deep dives on advanced concepts for pros. Workshops will include project files that you can reference and use as templates for your own work and projects. Videos can be streamed online or downloaded for offline viewing. The current two videos available are:

  1. A deep dive on TouchDesigner optimization, which includes how to use diagnostic tools like Performance Monitor and Probe, and a look at the common project bottlenecks, such as CPU, GPU, and hard drive/storage
  2. An extensive tutorial on how to use Render Picking in TouchDesigner. This often hard-to-learn technique allows you to create truly interactive 3D scenes that can easily scale from single-click to multi-touch displays
