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.
Any of the procedural data operators. OPs do all the work in TouchDesigner. They "cook" and output data to other OPs, which ultimately result in new images, data and audio being generated. See .
The location of an operator within the TouchDesigner environment, for example,
/geo1/torus1, a node called
torus1 in a component called
geo1. The path
/ is called . To refer instead to a filesystem folder, directory, disk file or
http: address, see .
Storage is a python dictionary associated with any operator, used to keep user-specified data within the operator.
Any component can be extended with its own Python classes which contain python functions and data.
A text string that contains data (string, float, list, boolean, etc.) and operators (+ * < etc) that are evaluated by the node's language (python or Tscript) and returns a string, float list or boolean, etc. Expressions are used in parameters, and in scripts.
Operators that have 1 or more input, like a Math CHOP, are called filters. See .
The generic thing that holds an , and includes (display, bypass, lock, render, immune) and its position/size in the network. Whether you "lay down an Operator" or "lay down an Node", you're doing the same thing.
