VJ Kung Fu

One of the great strengths of TouchDesigner is its custom component system, where you can make powerful, reusable items.

This video goes through creating a 2D sprite with controls for changing its image and modifying its alpha live. It will be a 3D object, so we can move it around in XYZ, rotate it, use a 3D camera get parallax effect, and more.

There's much more we can add in the future - color control, animations, UI for stage movement, etc. What I thought would be a 5 minute intro stretched quickly into a 17 minute video, so we'll have to save the upgrades for next time.

Heads up: the shoutbox will be retiring soon. It’s tired of working, and can’t wait to relax. You can still send a message to the channel owner, though!
