 Project Dogwaffle 2019:

LITE edition

Clever & Fast Digital Painting, 3D rendering & Animation

 Back to what's new in 2019  |   New to Howler? Start here 

What is the LITE edition?

It's a light version, not heavy. It is less loaded. It doesn't have everything that the full product offers.

The LITE edition can be found in various promotions, such as Shareware on Sale, cover mount CDs with magazines, and other websites.

There are a few things missing in the Lite version that you wll get when you decide to upgrade to the full latest version.


Here are some differences. Just some. There may be more.

If this is good enough for your needs, stay with this version. You're welcome.

If you can afford to upgrade, please do it. We need to eat. We need to feed our neurons, so we can come up with even more new great features. And boy do we have a few neat things on its way.

The Lite edition also has fewer assets, such as brush images, stickers, 3D trees...
