Parameters - CHOP To Page

CHOP chop - The CHOP to be used to retrieve values. A row is created for each channel's value.

Include Names names - When checked on, an extra column will be created in every row for the channel's name.

Latest Sample when Time Slice latestsample - When on and the CHOP is time sliced, only the latest sample of the CHOP will be used to create the DAT output. This prevents the table size from fluctuating as frames are dropped.

Output output - - Create a row per channel or column per channel.

  • Row per Channel rowperchan -
  • Column per Channel colperchan -


Parameters - Common Page

Language language - - Select how the DAT decides which script language to operate on.

  • Input input - The DAT uses the inputs script language.
  • Node node - The DAT uses it's own script language.


Edit/View Extension extension - - Select the file extension this DAT should expose to external editors.

  • dat dat - various common file extensions.
  • From Language language - pick extension from DATs script language.
  • Custom Extension custom - Specify a custom extension.


Custom Extension customext - Specifiy the custom extension.


Word Wrap wordwrap - - Enable Word Wrap for Node Display.

  • Input input - The DAT uses the inputs setting.
  • On on - Turn on Word Wrap.
  • Off off - Turn off Word Wrap.

An which operate on (a series of numbers) which are used for animation, audio, mathematics, simulation, logic, UI construction, and many other applications.

An that manipulates text strings: multi-line text or tables. Multi-line text is often a command , but can be any multi-line text. are rows and columns of cells, each containing a text string.

A Time Slice is the time from the last cook frame to the current cook frame. In CHOPs it is the set of short channels that only contain the CHOP channels' samples between the last and the current cook frame.

A outputs one or more channels, where a channel is simply a sequence of numbers, representing motion, audio, etc. Channels are passed between CHOPs in TouchDesigner networks. See also .
