Parameters - Info Page

Operator op - The path to the operator that the Info DAT is getting information from. You can drag & drop any node onto this path, or type the path directly into the field.

Passive passive - If this option is off, the Info DAT will update automatically when the information changes. If on, the data may or may not be out-of-date, and the Info DAT may require a forced cook to update its contents. This parameter can by useful to prevent unnecessary cooking.

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

  • Input input - The DAT uses the inputs 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.

An Operator Family that manipulates text strings: multi-line text or tables. Multi-line text is often a command Script, but can be any multi-line text. Tables 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 Node.

The generic thing that holds an Operator, and includes Flags (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.
