The TouchEngine API will allow other software packages to load TouchDesigner .tox files, process them, and pass data back and forth.

TouchEngine is the core technology behind the Engine COMP, as well as the upcoming Unreal Engine plugin.

The API, documentation and example project for Windows is available here:


The Engine COMP works with any license including Non-Commercial licenses.

Other implementations using TouchEngine require an Educational, Commercial, or Pro TouchDesigner/TouchPlayer license to run. Additionally TouchDesigner/TouchPlayer must be installed on the system to use TouchEngine.



Engine COMP - The Engine COMP is a native component in TouchDesigner that loads .tox component files into a project yet runs them on a separate TouchEngine process.
