The TUIO In DAT receives and parses TUIO messages (received over network) into columns in the table. TUIO packets OSC bundles, so TUIO data can also be viewed in its more raw form in an OSC In DAT. It currently uses the TUIO 1.1 protocol. The TUIO 2.0 protocol is not yet supported.


Parameters - Connect Page

Protocol protocol - - Select which protocol to use, refer to the Network Protocols article for more information.

  • Messaging (UDP) msging -
  • Multi-Cast Messaging (UDP) multicastmsging -
  • Reliable Messaging (UDT Library) reliablemsging -

Network Address address - For multi-cast protocol, this is the multi-cast address to listen for.

Port port - The port which TUIO In will accept packets on.

Shared Connection shared - Use the same connection as other networking DATs using the same network protocol.

Active active - While on, the DAT receives information sent to the network port. While Off, no updating occurs. Data sent to the port is lost.

Parameters - Received Messages Page

Callbacks DAT callbacks - The Callbacks DAT will get callbacks for TUIO events. See tuioinDAT_Class for usage.

Execute from executeloc - - Determines the location the script is run from.

  • Current Node current - The script is executed from the current node location (for example, where 'cc' points to).
  • Callbacks DAT callbacks - The script is executed from the location of the DAT specified in the Callbacks DAT parameter.
  • Specified Operator op - The script is executed from the operator specified in the From Operator parameter below.

From Operator fromop - The operator whose state change will trigger the DAT to execute its script when Execute from is set to Specified Operator. This operator is also the path that the script will be executed from if the Execute from parameter is set to Specified Operator.

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 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.

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.

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.
