TouchDesigner 077 newsletter

Welcome to Derivative's first newsletter of 2011 which reviews the last months of 2010.

SOFTWARE UPDATE We are finalizing the current Experimental build of TouchDesigner 077 to become the Gold build and would appreciate any feedback on the latest Experimentals.

CALLING ALL EDUCATORS - We are building a course curriculum and taking input from all sources related to TouchDesigner education. Let us know if you are teaching TouchDesigner, or intend to be teaching it in the next year. If you are a student we'd like to hear from you too.

Join the TouchDesigner FACEBOOK page and get the latest news as it happens. Another great way to share and discuss with the community if you'd like to.
