Instancing in Touchdesigner. Comparison of techniques

In this video I show different ways of using instancing in touchdesigner.
There are a couple of very good and much more extensive tutorials on this subject.
The purpose of this video is to show different approaches using sops, chops, tops and dats and talk a little about the benefits and perks of each.
