Derivative TouchDesigner 077

Derivative TouchDesigner 077 | TouchDesigner at Work | Scoop.it

Three years ago Derivative ushered in the next-generation of TouchDesigner with the first alpha release of 077. During that time many new capabilities were introduced and TouchDesigner has grown into the most complete realtime visualization software available in the market today.

 

TouchDesigner 077 is a visual development platform that equips you with the tools you need to create stunning realtime projects and rich user experiences. Whether you're creating live music visuals, interactive media systems, architectural projections, or simply rapid-prototyping your latest creative impulse, TouchDesigner provides you with an exploratory, visual, and fun way to work.

 

It is with satisfaction that we declare 077 'Gold' after 3 years of development and nurturing. It's given us occasion to review what it has taken to get here and to consider what makes TouchDesigner so empowering. Most importantly, we recognize how you - the TouchDesigner community - have played a leading role in determining where we are now (and where we are headed). Creating such a product has always been our passion, but the real thrill for us has been watching the community grow and discovering the fascinating projects you produce with it! read more>>

WORKING on MOVEMENTS OF PERCEPTION with MICHAEL SNOW

WORKING on MOVEMENTS OF PERCEPTION with MICHAEL SNOW | TouchDesigner at Work | Scoop.it

"The Viewing of Six New Works is a light projection composition derived from the essentialized movements of eyes and head, that a possible person might make in looking at a rectangular object on the wall (i.e., a "painting", a "photograph"). Each hypothetical wall rectangle is perceived differently. This is shown by the different "personal" gestures involved in the revealing of the rectangle. When attention is not being paid to it the object/rectangle is not there.

 

The work is an attempt to present only the movements of perception, not perception itself. The art of looking." - Michael Snow

Opera Goes 3D

Opera Goes 3D | TouchDesigner at Work | Scoop.it

For the first time ever, an opera and a ballet performance using 3D stereo-vision virtual sets were staged at the Hungarian State Opera in September. The interest generated by, and the response to these performances were overwhelmingly positive, with 3D technology seen as having huge potential for a world typically fond of traditions.

Sep.07.09 RASTER-NOTON deploys DERIVATIVE'S TOUCHDESIGNER at ARS ELECTRONICA by Isabelle Rousset

In 2008 raster-noton and Derivative joined forces for a unique collaborative project which focused on the realization of the label artists' visual presentation during their audio-visual live shows on the basis of Derivative's TouchDesigner software. The alliance emerged in 2008 when under the guidance of raster-noton label founders olaf bender (byetone) and carsten nicolai (alva noto), Markus Heckmann put the infinite capabilities of TouchDesigner to work in developing a performative user interface for the artists.

SND @ Club Transmediale 09 - TouchDesigner on Vimeo

09.01.27 IN THE ROOM WITH SND, TRANSMEDIALE 09. BERLIN

 

Derivative recently collaborated with SND at Transmediale 09, Berlin to perform the visual aspect of their musical set composed of accumulating vertical colour strips released by the "twiddling of knobs" as Derivative's Greg Hermanovic put it, where each strip is "an 'era' of knob-turns making up the geological history of their 45-minute musical set."

 

To say that working with SND's Mark Fell is exciting would be an understatement. A prolific multidisciplinary Sheffield-based artist, Fell's work in sound, image and interaction shows a keen interest in and mastery of technology, computer science, philosophy and contemporary art. Fell's bio outlines an extensive and accomplished career of critically acclaimed sound publications, curatorial and academic works, the design and development of generative art systems as well as an exhaustive list of exhibitions and performances at major international festivals including Mutek, Sonar and The Corcoran.

OBSCURA DIGITAL Shines 940,000 Lumens in the Desert and it is Spectacular

OBSCURA DIGITAL Shines 940,000 Lumens in the Desert and it is Spectacular | TouchDesigner at Work | Scoop.it

Earlier this month Obscura Digital used TouchDesigner to once again raise the bar of large scale architectural mapping and projection design, this time for the 40th Anniversary of the United Arab Emirates National Day Celebration at the Sheikh, Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi.

 

The sheer scale of this production was mindboggling with 49 projectors used to project on a total surface measuring 19,474 square meters which included 4 minarets and 12 domes necessitating "detailed accuracy of 3-D mapping and content quality on incredibly complex geometry of flat walls with intricate hand carved details and arcades with rows of columns."

 

Interactive developer and artist Mary Franck who worked on the project for the duration had this to say: "It was certainly a dream projection-mapping job: incredible architecture, all white marble, completely artistic and cultural content. It was absolutely an honor to be a part of it.

Jul.05.10 TOUCHDESIGNER at MIT MEDIA LAB

Jul.05.10 TOUCHDESIGNER at MIT MEDIA LAB | TouchDesigner at Work | Scoop.it

Last month we paid a visit to MIT Media Lab to see what David Robert had been up to since arriving in Cambridge last summer following 10 years at Side Effects Software. David who has produced innovative work with Houdini and TouchDesigner had A LOT of new work to show and tell. Most of it ingeniously combines low and hi-tech to devise products and environments that allow 'children of all ages' to learn, create, and share in playful and collaborative ways. All very inspiring, very impressive and most importantly very, very FUN!

 

One such project produced by David and collaborators Edwina Portocarrero, Michelle Chung and Sean Follmer, is The Never-Ending Drawing Machine whose application is built in TouchDesigner which provides the framework for the integration of the machine's various subsystems.

FACEBOOK F8

FACEBOOK F8 | TouchDesigner at Work | Scoop.it

Obscura Digital used TouchDesigner to create a "physical, social, augmented reality experience dubbed "Connections" at F8, Facebook's developer's conference. Attendees swipe in to the experience using their RFID enabled event badge. Multiple overhead projectors map visuals to the floor and an array of 3D cameras are used to reliably track any number of people within the space.

 

Once "logged in" to Connections, a radial visualization, constructed from the user's social graph data, surrounds them creating a unique "fingerprint". Colored lines extend from the circles connecting people who share one or more of the observed metrics (mutual friends, interests, workplaces, schools, locations, birth sign, or non-English languages). When two or more people, who have mutual connections, stand within close proximity, a slideshow of mutual friends and interests appear between them.

DIGITAL ENVIRONMENT DESIGN at NABA with TOUCHDESIGNER

DIGITAL ENVIRONMENT DESIGN at NABA with TOUCHDESIGNER | TouchDesigner at Work | Scoop.it

We recently posted an article about an opera and a ballet being staged with 3D stereo-vision virtual sets for the first time. Andrew Quinn working with 3DLive Live was responsible for this landmark achievement and used TouchDesigner to develop the 3D technology employed in this way for the first time.

 

Andrew, one of the first TouchDesigner users, is based in Milan where he teaches a TouchDesigner course as part of a masters program in Digital Environment Design at NABA. The masters program was founded in 2007 by Paolo Atzori with the goal of providing a 360° view in the field of Interaction and Digital Environment Design and to evolve the technical and critical skills needed to create environments that integrate the digital scenarios of the information society in new representations of space characterised by dynamics of pervasiveness and interaction.

 

Andrew and teaching assistant graduate student Nima Gazestani have for some time now produced impressive live audio-reactive visuals to accompany classical music performances. They have also graduated proficient and inventive TouchDesigner users from the Digital Environment Design program over the past three years.
