Notch and TouchDesigner – a love affair

Notch, TouchDesigner
Loading Events

Notch is a powerful enviroment to create amazing motion graphics and interactive VFX in realtime, but how can you take this one step further?

Thats’s where TouchDesigner comes in as the perfect partner to create powerful immersive and interactive installations, VR/AR pieces and music driven performances. Together both tools deliver a more complete creator experience. Now you can connect physical programming with lasers, dmx lights and different kinds of sensors to drive the piece the way you really wanted to.

Carlos will walk you through two different projects, explaining all the aspects and provide you with files to kickstart your own exploration. At the end you will understand how to build complex systems with millions of particles and volumentric lights and connect them to the physical world. 

The second part will be an extensive Q&A, where Carlos will answer your questions and try out all the things you want to know about this power couple – for you. 

You will learn how to:

Create beautiful content
without GLSL in Notch:

# Volumetric Lights
# 3D Particle Trails
# Procedural Meshes
# Volumes & Fields
# Millions of Particles
* Bonus: Face Tracking

Manipulate Notch content inside TouchDesigner or send sophisticated control data from Touch to Notch: 

# Exporting Notch Blocks for TD
# Exposable Notch Cameras in TD
# Use 2D Textures and 3D Objects
# Programm Logic and Interaction 
# Get Physical:
Work with Sensors, Lights (DMX, Artnet), Music, Lasers (ILDA), Arduino, APIs, Videomapping and multiple Output Screens

Extended Q&A:
Bring your ideas and questions and we will solve them together.


You should be familiar to navigate and work with TouchDesigner. 

As a minimum you should have passed the free Introduction to Touchdesigner Course here.

Both TouchDesigner and Notch need professional licenses to do what Carlos will show. We do not expect you to click along in this webinar, but if you have all the licenses, you sure can.


Realtime VFX

A node-based interface that’s familiar and intuitive to explore, allowing limitless possibilities simply by connecting logical building blocks. Timeline and animation editing, compositing and grading, all in one environment, designed with narrative in mind.

The workflow you always wanted: Create, simulate, render, composite, edit, and play: always in real-time, always working on the full and final result.

Import Cinema4D files directly in Notch without conversion, including some of your favorite MoGraph tools.

Media Artist

Media Designer & Interaction Designer from Bogotá, Colombia. At this moment, he has focused his researches on how can the real world be recreated with physics and mathematics by running algorithms and simulate physical worlds in virtual representations.

General infos

We take accapt a maximum of 16 participants in the live webinar. If you miss the live webinar, you will be able to buy access the recordings afterwards. The webinar language is english.

For a successful webinar please prepare the following

As not many people have the right licenses to run a copmbination of Notch and TouchDesigner, this is more of a walkthrough than a click-along webinar.

Collect all the questions that you might have about Notch and TouchDesigner and the combination of both.
