Right now I am working on some software to educate public speakers. One of the requirements for the software is that it records and stores data gathered in real time during a talk and be able to be accessed later for playback and data analysis. This data needs to be managed in such a way… Read More Data management with Python
Today I’going to bring you through the basics of creating stereoscopic visuals. If you don’t have a set of anaglyphic 3D glass laying around you can make them fairly easily with plastic glasses frames from a movie theater and some red and blue lighting gel. Here is a picture of the glasses I made. It’s… Read More Simple Stereoscopy visuals in TouchDesigner
Ripped right from Wikipedia: “UV mapping is the 3D modeling process of projecting a 2D image to a 3D models surface.” If you’re familiar with 3D modeling then UV maps might be second nature to you, they allow you to give the object you create texture. They allow you to manipulate the way light interacts… Read More Visualizing UVs and UV maps
Here is an example of GLSL ray marching in TouchDesigner. The marching algorithm looks up the pixel value from a Texture3D and paints it in a GLSL TOP.
Hi All, I’ve switched my hosting around so my site is a bit more stable and in the process some of my tutorial content has been lost. I am doing my best to get it all up again, however it’s kind of slow going. If you have specific questions about any tutorial here, please contact… Read More Forgive the dust.
Here is a video where I go over some basic methods of generating realistic textures from a single image. I go over the Phong MAT, normal map, and a basic geometry displacement technique.
This tutorial will help you leverage Blenders physics engine to create complex 3D animations quickly. It will also walk-through programmatic solutions to deal with texturing and playing back those animations. The tutorial uses 3D assets from my previous tutorial on camera mapping which you can find here: http://www.design.ianshelanskey.com/technology/3d-content-part-1-camera-mapping/
