Donate to the Memory of a Video Pioneer!

Bill Etra passed away in 2016. He leaves behind long legacy of pioneering both video art and video tools, including the Rutt/Etra Video Synthesizer, which this plugin created by Vade emulates. Vade sends all donations he receives via the v002 Rutt Etra web page to Jim’s partner Roz. She lives on fixed income and has no surviving family to help her, so every donation made via Vade's page makes a big difference in someone’s life.
