Creative Media Lab presents TouchDesigner Masterclass for real-time animation techniques with Mary Franck!

This masterclass will cover some fundamentals of generative design and procedural animation, then dive into specific workflows. Participants will learn processes for combining the intricacy of algorithmic design with the expressiveness of manual 3d modeling. They will then learn how to manipulate these designs as performable, real-time animations.

It will be taught in Blender and TouchDesigner. Prior knowledge of these software programs will be helpful but is not required.
