TOP clipboard support

TouchDesigner can do so much but is missing a very basic thing: clipboard image support.
Since textures can be embedded into TD projects by locking a TOP, it would make sense to be able to paste an image from the OS clipboard as a locked Null TOP containing the texture.
Also being able to right-click any TOP and have an option to copy the contents to the clipboard. (right under ‘save image’) would be very useful

This would make creative workflows feel more natural, as now there is this flow-breaking step of saving and loading images as files constantly when working in tandem with other software or collaborating with others over online platforms.


Good idea. Adding to the RFE list!

Perhaps this could be achieved using PyWin32’s win32clipboard.GetClipboardData() method. I’ve only ever used it with text but perhaps it could work with binary data as well…
