Touch Designer and Max or TD vs Max

    Dec 05 2012 | 5:14 pm
    Hi relative newbie. I am learning to use Touch designer (PC only) and was wondering how Max and TD might work together. Do they complement each other in terms of features or do they both do many of the same things? Could someone summarize the strengths of both?

      As I understand it, Touch Designer does high quality motion graphics, similar to Quartz Composer. I have no idea if you can integrate TD and Max. If TD supports OSC you might be able to control it from Max.
      I think the reason why people get TD is to have access to a lot of high quality animations right out of the box. Max is like a lego set, you can create things that are just as impressive, you just have to build it your self.
