TouchDesigner is one of the best multimedia development environments on the planet, but maybe you can make it even better with your own hands!

You may encounter a similar situation: you are always happy to use TouchDesigner to complete one challenge after another, but sometimes your work partner is often used to various DCC (digital content creation) environments and cannot immediately jump to such a free node-based authoring environment (except Houndini users of course ^^), they are very used to a variety of more abstract UI interfaces to assist their creation.

Or, sometimes you often repeat some abstract operations, until you even feel that you should have some custom user interface to complete these daily tasks?

First of all, we need to know: the user interface of TouchDesigner is written by TouchDesigner itself.

This means that the above-mentioned problems you encounter can actually be solved by your proficient TD skills, and it also gives your friends who may not be familiar with TD have the opportunity to contact TouchDesigner in a more intimate way for the first time!

Or you can simply get some fun as an interface hacker. :)

**Topics covered in this workshop will include:**

- Dive into the hidden TD user interface network.
- Modify the user interface of TD (Palette, Menu, OP Create Dialog...etc)
- Know the TD installation environment to take advantage of some files in those folders that you might ignore.
- Translation (localization) TD interface.
- Tips for customizing the workspace.
- Monitor the TD user interface for interactive.
- Publish custom UI components.
- Introduce some interesting open source components under this topic.


你可能會遇到類似的狀況:你總是很開心的使用TouchDesigner完成一個又一個的挑戰,但有時你的工作夥伴常常因為習慣於各種DCC(digital content creation)環境而無法立即跳到如此自由的節點基礎創作環境 (當然,Houndini用戶除外^^),他們很習慣各種較為抽象的UI介面來輔助他們的創作。




或者你也可以單純的獲得一些作為介面駭客的趣味。 :)


- 潛入隱藏的TD使用者介面網路
- 修改TD的使用者介面 (Palette, Menu, OP Create Dialog....etc)
- 認識TD安裝環境,以利用一些在那些資料夾中你可能會忽略的文件
- 翻譯(本地化)TD介面
- 自定義工作區的技巧
- 監控TD使用者介面以獲得互動反饋
- 將自定義的UI組件包起來並發佈
- 介紹一些關於此主題之下有趣的開源組件
