How I Build Components these Days
Over the years I have made many components, and HOW I have made them has changed radically, especially recently. As TouchDesigner evolves, better ways are discovered and perfected. Some new Best Practices have established themselves in my work.
In TouchDesigner you can hack free-form for a long time. For me, once I get to a certain point, I want to make a component more flexbile and adaptive, so out come the custom parameters, the expressions as constraints, some structure. Then with that in place, as it turns out, I can hack more freely and efficiently.
This Master Class shows this in action, and will help you build better-structured projects without sacrificing free-flow improvisation.
