Cross CHOP tutorial.

The Cross CHOP. TouchDesigner 088. 2014.
The Cross CHOP is a multi-input Channel Operator that allows you to interpolate between input values.

1
00:00:00,200 –> 00:00:03,067
Let’s examine the cross CHOP.

2
00:00:03,067 –> 00:00:12,900
The cross CHOP allows you to
switch between multiple inputs,
but interpolate between the
incoming values.

3
00:00:12,900 –> 00:00:20,167
You can use integers as cross
values to simply switch between
inputs.

4
00:00:20,167 –> 00:00:31,133
I’ve created a box SOP with its
“sizex” parameter referencing
the cross CHOP channel named
“chan1”.

5
00:00:31,133 –> 00:00:35,733
This will help you visualize the
cross CHOPs’ effect.

6
00:00:35,733 –> 00:00:49,367
The interpolation is straight,
or linear, so a cross value of
.5 will blend the first 2 inputs
at 50% each.

7
00:00:49,367 –> 00:00:51,367
The cross CHOP is a commonly
used operator that can
compliment or replace standard
switching.
