Hello there, I’m Igor.
I’m currently managing an exibition that has an interactive installation built in touchdesigner.
I didn’t built it from myself so I don’t have a deep knowledge of the network nodes in TD
It uses 2 Intel 415 Realsense Cameras.
I have this problem.
To run smootly this installation should be restarted every day but I can’t rely on exibition stewarts to do so.
So I managed to autostart TD with a little max-msp patch that fires up the TD project and sends OSC commands to run fullscreen performance mode. This is going well.
But, if I try to close the application using the command
taskkill /T /IM TouchDesigner099.exe
When I restart the computer installation after shutdown, Touchdesigner freezes at 100% load of the project and the only way to restart it is to unplug and plug back the USB cameras.
Cameras are on USB extensions and when computer is off there is no more power on usb devices, as it should.
I really need to be able to shutdown the computer and restart it every day as I noticed that after 12 hours of runtime one camera stops working and global frameate is going down drastically.
Maybe the Taskkill command isn’t the most suitable to close touchdesigner automatically?
Please, any advice will be very much appreciated.
