Amazing, was about to start building something like this. Thank You!

Hello, I’m new to touch designer. Can someone explain me how to use this to map something on a sphere? Just the basic workflow so I can understand how to route them all. I am familiar with nodal programming and other VJ software like isadora, resolume, vdmx, etc. I just don’t know what to do with this project. Should I use syphon to route it in resolume, or how many projectors should I use and how where are my outs for them?
thanks a lot

For create visuals, please check this topic on the forum ;
[url]cubemap to fulldome / fisheye shader - Shared .tox Components - TouchDesigner forum

Or this great list :

Awesome. What about regular spherical or equirectangular videos. Will these also work?

Of course, just change the Geo by a SOP Sphere and choose what you want in the Texture Coordinates parameter.

Still love this, i used with my HTC VIVE


Hi @anodin
Thanks you so much for this toe ! I just get an error when I open it and I can figure out why… It’ in the Inside Dome container (in the script Sop).
“line 11 : td.ParCollection object has no attribute val0v1”

Do you know how to fix it ?

Thx TSCN_Studio to noticed this out to me
I just update my origibnal post to make it works with TD 099 v 2022.29850
Enjoy !
