There are a lot of operators to work with in TouchDesigner (500+), so how can one learn what each operator does?! Operators Snippets is a helpful set of over 1000 live examples that show their use in small TouchDesigner networks.

You can get to operator snippets in three different ways. You can open Operator Snippets in the Help menu. You can right-click on any node and select Operator Snippets. You can right-click on any operator in the OP Create menu and select Operator Snippets.

You can experiment with each example, then copy-paste the snippet into your current project.

Once you bring up your first operator snippet, you can click the Rand button and do a free-form exploration of TouchDesigner operators.
