Aah I love story time! Thanks for this write up Ben, and for finding those images.
I didn’t start working in TouchDesigner until (alpha) version 077, so a lot of this story was new to me!

Looking forward to the next part(s)!

cheers Idzard

I was surprised to see that too. Does it mean that some early version of VEX was part of Touchdesigner back in those days? I love using VEX in Houdini nowadays and was therefore curious about this :slight_smile:
Anyway this is great article.

Hi all :slight_smile:
Any update on Part 2?

Someone asked me about this yesterday as well! :thinking:
I’d like to revisit soon.


How about now :stuck_out_tongue:

No, not quite yet :joy:
