Q & A on the new Video Toaster & LightWave 3D Report
Miller Freeman, Inc., publisher of Digital Video Magazine, 3D
Design, Video Toaster User and LIGHTWAVEPRO will announce this
week the joint development of biannual, special reports for Video
Toaster User and LIGHTWAVEPRO subscribers that will be called
Video Toaster & LightWave 3D Report. These special reports,
will supersede the current monthly issues of Video Toaster User
and LIGHTWAVEPRO and will launch this spring. A joint press release
from Miller Freeman and NewTek is planned to go out on Friday,
October 25, 1996 announcing this and other new media strategies
from NewTek, Inc. that support Video Toaster and LightWave users.
The new Video Toaster & LightWave 3D Report will focus on
the specific products, tips, techniques and industry news that
readers and advertisers have come to rely on from Video Toaster
User and LIGHTWAVEPRO.
The following are questions we anticipate readers will be asking
with regard to this change:

bound into Digital Video and 3D Design Magazines.
A: The January issue of Video Toaster User and the October issue
of LIGHTWAVEPRO will be the last.
A: At this time there are no plans to do so since NewTek, Inc.
and Miller Freeman, Inc. have developed new media strategies to
serve the needs of this evolving market.
A: The intent of these new strategies bring a broader level of
information to Video Toaster and LightWave users through Miller
Freeman's focused, in-depth, biannual reports in Digital Video
Magazine and 3D Design and a Web publication from NewTek, called
NewTek Studio, that will capitalize on the timely and interactive
nature of the new medium.
