hello all… trying to get a custom python script into touchdesigner. Made some progress … I have code the python code working IDLE and have bought it into touch, when i run it i get no errors, but the issue is I get no output in the shell, it is supposed to return a value between -1 to 1. I also need to add this output to a table to the use in an art piece. Im pretty new to python and have felt my way through this project. Im running 3.8 python i think i have the paths right … unsure where to go next… any help appreciated. Image attached for code.

If you want to pull these external libraries into your project, we did a workshop about this kind of approach at the summit last summer:
Does that help you get started?
thank you so much for taking the time to reply. Yes, lots here for me to look at and learn more.
