TOUCHDESIGNER EVENT BERLIN 2024

21 May 2024 , 09:00 23 May 2024 , 23:59 CEST

We are honored to announce the return of the TouchDesigner event to Berlin, set to take place at HOLON and other venues from May 21 to May 23, 2024. Once again, this will be an intimate gathering for about 100 participants.

The conference’s first day will be a separately ticketed workshop day, offering limited capacity seats exclusively for conference attendees.

Following the successful model of our 2023 Event, the subsequent two days will consist of a daytime program of presentations from the community. This will be complemented by two very special evenings of inspired entertainment at a couple of unique venues: Studio 1111 and MONOPOL Berlin. Details in program below.

As always, these events are intended to share new work and ideas, inspire and educate, and simply to gather in person for intensive TouchDesigner community time. Derivative’s Greg Hermanovic, Markus Heckmann, Isabelle Rousset, Malcolm Bechard, Ben Voigt and Eric Bonn from the Derivative team will be in attendance and look forward to seeing you all!

TOUCHPY MASTERCLASS
Thur, May 24th at SSPATIAL MEDIA LAB, 3 PM (CET)

In addition to the official program, Keith Lostracco and Idzard Kwadijk from IntentDev, in cooperation with the Spatial Media Lab, will host a TouchPy masterclass (see presentation Thursday 23rd).

TouchPy is a cutting-edge Python library with a C++ core designed to enhance interactions between Python frameworks and TouchDesigner through Vulkan and CUDA. This tool facilitates direct GPU-to-GPU (zero-copy) data transfers, optimizing the integration of AI technologies with TouchDesigner, especially for frameworks like PyTorch and Nvidia Warp. TouchPy’s development responds to the challenges of swiftly incorporating complex Python-based AI into TouchDesigner.

In this masterclass, Keith and Idzard will walk through installing and configuring TouchPy for a particular machine, installing and importing Python packages that implement generative and inference models, and integrating the packages with TouchDesigner.

For the TouchPy masterclass, attendees should have a basic understanding of Python and TouchDesigner. Attendees will not need to bring a computer.

After the masterclass you are invited to stay at the Spatial Media Lab, grab a drink and maybe even hold a presentation of your own. The stage will be open for everyone to present, as several desks with screens invite to share knowledge in smaller groups.

The Space will be open until the late evening, drinks are provided as are small snacks.
