How to use Touch Up Texture & Titanium White

If you have trouble watching this video you have two options while we are looking into solutions. 

The first option is to force the video quality. The following is what Vimeo has said about this problem:

“If they are indeed using iOS 11, unfortunately, it appears that this issue is deriving from Apple’s software. Thus there’s nothing we can do to resolve the problem from our side of things. We have reported this bug to Apple’s engineering team and we hope to have a resolution soon. As soon as we receive an update, we’ll be sure to send it along.”

If that doesn’t work for you, just fill out your name and email address in the form below and I will send you another link 🙂
