Combining the etc with touchdesigner


#1

hello, maybe a stupid question:
does anyone know if it would be possible to patch via tochdesinger visuals together and then put it into a mode on the etc?
both are working on python. so far i know,
but i can´t program yet.^^

i have my student researchers learning TD this semester. We’ll see.

I did read the TD description only cursorily, but I assume, that the biggest problem will be, that TD relies on using a modern multicore highspeed computer with gigabytes of RAM, whilest the ETC is a slow single core micro processor and has the RAM-size of a computer from 1999.
So even if you would succeed in making the ETC understand the TD’s code, the code will overload the ETC quite sure.

You don’t need to buy the fastest CPU, but get the best NVIDIA graphics card with the most graphics RAM you can afford. TouchDesigner can use a lot of CPU RAM, so get as much as possible.
