One of the essential operations of building networks in TouchDesigner is connecting Operators and Components. These connections are made with wires and links. Operators of the same family are connected by wires. Wires connect the output of one node to the input of another in a network. Wires are the color of their family and are animated when data is actively passing from one operator to another. Looking at the animation of wires can help you visually determine what is cooking in TouchDesigner.
