Learning animation / motion graphics with TD?

Postby JoeClark on 09/4/2017, 11:43 pm


I'm looking to start creating audio reactive visuals/motion graphics with touchdesigner for live shows but I struggle with learning how to build these models/structure in touchdesigner. I've got the interactive audio part down - TOPs, and CHOPs, no problem - it's the 3d/2d modeling that I don't know wth I'm doing with...

I've watched the resonate tutorial probably 13 - 15 times all the way through along with other Animated Motion Graphics Video, which taught me alot, but I still struggle to understand how I'm to create some of the things I want such as a lightning bolts, or balloons, bouncing balls, whatever...
Are there any good resource materials out there that might show how to create a skull, a tree, a butterfly, etc. etc. with TouchDesigner? I feel like I've watched the TD tutorials so many times it's really hard for me to get anything new out of them anymore.

Post your suggestions as soon as possible.
Thank you.

Maybe look into vectors or shape art, those are utilized quite well and frequently in Mograph. Training-wise, maybe school of motion. A premium option but worth the investment.
Challenge yourself, be Creative!
