Inside Dome – New piece of software for TouchDesigner

Dome projection is a wild ride, and one of the many challenges artists face is how to place their art on the dome – live, without pre-rendering their content specifically for each projection environment. Proper software is key and, among other options, TouchDesigner is one of the most common software used in the field.

TouchDesigner is a visual development platform that equips artists with necessary tools to create stunning real-time projects and rich user experiences. Whether you’re making interactive media systems, live music visuals or simply rapid-prototyping some creative impulse, this powerful piece of software lets you take any concept or dataset and transform it into a visual canvas that can tell a story, express an emotion, or convey a message.
