    At this point we’ve created a composition in a container (Snippet 1, Project 1) and we’ve built a control system of animated channels (Snippet 2). Now we’re going to start to look at how we put those ideas together. Project 2 builds off of what we’ve learned in our other projects, and act as an extension of Snippet 2. For this project you’ll use what you’ve made in Snippet 2 as a starting point for building your own modular set of visual and animation elements. Using Snippet 2 as a guide, you will build two distinct components: + Your own visual component (Container) that has 15 control elements (like the tox file that I supplied to you). + A component (Container) that holds a CHOP network which animates your visual component. This CHOP network should output 15 control elements. 1. Your network should contain a Visuals COMP (Container) - make sure this is labeled with your initials and “vis”. For example, mine would be labled, “mrVis”. 2. Your network should contain a Control COMP (Container) - make sure this is labeled with your initials and “CTRL”. For example, mine would be labled, “mrCTRL”. 3. Your Control COMP should contain 15 animated channels. 4. Your Visuals COMP should contain a constant with 15 corresponding “default” channels that match the names in your Control COMP. 5. The Visuals container should use expressions or CHOP exports to connect the 15 control elements in the network from a single Null CHOP. All 15 channels should make a recognizable change in your final image. 6. Your Visuals COMP should contain a text DAT with a script for setting the resolution of the artwork in your network using storage. 7. Your Visuals network should contain a real-time rendered piece of geometry - this requires a render set up with a Camera, Light, and Geometry COMP, as well as a render TOP with a resolution of 1280 x 720. 8. The resolution of your Visual COMP should be 1280 x 720 - using storage as a method for recalling those values. 9. Both your Control Container COMP and your Visuals Container COMP should be well commented. 10. Your final visuals COMP should perform at least 40 fps.

        Esteemed electronc musician Amon Tobin's greatest success to date is the unique live performance of his 7th studio album, ISAM. Upon the show's premiere in 2011, the subsequent tour went on to mesmerize audiences, sell out venues worldwide, and garner phenomenal press...then doubled in scale the following year and repeated the same feat. Leviathan was a key creative and engineering partner from the start, helping to create one of the most talked-about entertainment experiences in the genre's history.

            We were asked by Amplify.la ( a startup accelerator in Venice CA) to create an interactive installation for their upcoming launch party. I have always loved the concept of physical, analog objects interacting with digital, so for the concept was to have an exercise bike that drove you through a digital world. Using an Arduino microcontroller to detect each pedal of the bike, we then sent that info to touchdesigner which handled the creation of the game and the visuals. The Microsoft Kinect tracks the users leaning from side to side, giving us a way to navigate even when using a stationary exercise bike.

                    • An Interactive Earth


                      from Jon Baxter / Added

                      Control the fate of the earth by manipulating the parameters 'nature', 'development', 'control' and 'chaos'. These parameters are intrinsically linked; as development increases nature decreases. Only when the parameters are in balance can harmony occur. We used Lemur running on an iPad, which sent OSC signals to Ableton Live for the sound, and to Touch Designer which controlled the visuals. 25 flat, loopable earth states where wrapped onto a spinning sphere in Touch Designer which, due to dissolving between multiple quicktimes, gave a smooth interactive experience as the audience used the faders to control the world. The resulting image was projected using a 5k projector. A matching interactive stereo sound design was created in Ableton Live, using using Lemur's onboard logic to covert the interactive data into usable information. "The driving force for me was the concept of balance. We cannot have our cake and eat it. We must take responsibility for action. I wanted to make an interface for the earth that demonstrated this." http://www.perceptual-engineering.com Concept / Visual Design and animation Jon Baxter Interactive programming - Touch Designer Puck Murphy Interactive sound design Peter Hobbs Interactive programming - Lemur Puck Murphy Peter Hobbs Jon Baxter Illustration Dvir Gilboa Bev Eng Mathematics Consultant Mike Robinson Conceptual Consultants Keith and Armagan Ballantyne Projection Spyglass Western Park Installation Team Kathryn Taylor Andy Cave http://www.perceptual-engineering.com

                      What are Tags?


                      Tags are keywords that describe videos. For example, a video of your Hawaiian vacation might be tagged with "Hawaii," "beach," "surfing," and "sunburn."
