A CHOP describes a reference to a CHOP operator, containing a set of channels accessed with the Channel Class.


Members[edit]

As these attributes are dependent on each other, set the rate and start (or startTime) attributes, before the len, end (or endTime) attributes.

end(Read Only):

The end index of the channels. This can be modified only when the CHOP is a scriptCHOP.

export(Read Only):

Get or set export flag.

exportChanges(Read Only):

Number of times the export mapping information has changed.

isCHOP(Read Only):

True if the operator is a CHOP.

isTimeSlice(Read Only):

True if the CHOP last cooked as a time slice.

numChans(Read Only):

The number of channels.

numSamples(Read Only):

The number of samples (or indices) per channel. You can change the number of samples by setting this value, only in a scriptCHOP.

rate(Read Only):

The sample rate of the CHOP. This can be modified only when the CHOP is a scriptCHOP.

start(Read Only):

The start index of the channels. This can be modified only when the CHOP is a scriptCHOP.

Methods[edit]

save(filepath):

: -> filepath

Saves the channel to the file system. Supported file formats are .clip, .bclip, .chan, .bchan and .aiff. Returns the file path used. filepath - (Optional) The path and filename to save to. name = n.save() #save in native format with default name n.save('output.chan') #ascii readable tab delimited format

n.save('output.aiff') #supported audio format

chan(nameOrIndex1, nameOrIndex2..., caseSensitive=True):

: -> Channel or None

Returns the first Channel that matches the given name or index or None if none are found. Multiple patterns may be specified which are all added to the search. nameOrIndex - May be a string name, possibly using Pattern Matching, or it may be a numeric channel index. caseSensitive - (Optional) Specifies whether or not case sensitivity is used. c = n.chan(4) c = n.chan('chan*')

c = n.chan('chan3zall', caseSensitive=False)

chans(nameOrIndex1, nameOrIndex2..., caseSensitive=True):

: -> list

Returns a (possibly empty) list of Channels that match that specified names or indices. Multiple names and indices may be provided. nameOrIndex - (Optional) One or more string names, possibly using Pattern Matching, or numeric channel index. No arguments are passed, a list of all channels is returned. caseSensitive - (Optional) Specifies whether or not case sensitivity is used. newlist = n.chans() # get all channels in the CHOP

newlist = n.chans('a*', 3,4,5, 'd*')

convertToKeyframes(tolerance=0.1):

: -> animationCOMP

Create an Animation COMP that contains a keyframed approximation of the CHOP's channels. The resultant animationCOMP is returned.

tolerance - (Keyword, Optional) If this is not given, the default value is 0.1. It may be overridden for higher accuracy match between the source channels and the resulting keyframed channels.

TouchDesigner Build:

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

Matching strings using wildcard characters and bracketing. Useful in "Select" parameters to select multiple operators, paths, etc.

An Operator Family that contains its own Network inside. There are twelve 3D Object Component and eight 2D Panel Component types. See also Network Path.
