Can someone explain each activation gesture for the touch sensor. I know what some of them are but others I don't understand like direct touch. Thanks!

While the different Activation Gestures can seem somewhat similar, there are a few unique qualities to each single one. I'll try to sum it up below.

1) Touch:
Sensor activates any time your finger is in "contact" with the object.

2) Tap:
Sensor only activates if you briefly tap the object.

3) Swipe:
Sensor activates if you move the touch-point while in contact with the object.

4) Pick up:
Sensor requires the object to be both touched and Touch Moveable (Either use one of the specific Touch Materials or attach a Touch Tweaker to the object).

5) Direct Touch:
Very similar to the default "Touch" (see bullet-point 1), but with one exception. You will have to initiate touch directly onto the object carrying the Sensor. Therefore Direct Touch will not activate if you touch next to the object and slide your finger across it.


I hope this will clarify things a bit? Please let me know if any of these explanations doesn't make sense to you :)

Slaeden-Bob is spot-on, but the tutorials explain it pretty well too. Listen to Stephen Fry and his infinite wisdom!
