What's New


What's Cool

PD Artist

Hello again.  PD Pro 8.2 is coming soon. We had a first look last month, we have a few more videos/tutorials here. We also continue to explore using 3D with the free program called Anim8or. See new tutorials on how to use that with Dogwaffle too.
Finbally, we have new pricing for PD Pro 7 and 8, and also earlier versions. In fact PD Pro version 5 can be had for free.

As usual, you can see the html version here:


PD Pro 8.2 - Another Sneak Peek

  We have a few tutorials where Dan discusses what's coming with 8.2. We also just learned that the Style (3D lighting) filter will have some type of animation support, and so will the graphic Pen. Here's today's word from our developer:

  • A few last minute changes.  the lighting tool will have at least some basic animation capability (no animated parameters yet)
  • The graphic pen will also animate similarly, which could make some 'naturalistic' animations possible maybe.
During today's alpha testing we were indeed applying the lighting tool across all frames of the current animation, so whatever that animation does will look very 3D topographic now. Sh-weeeeeet!!!!

Here is more:

Latest 8.2 (preview)

  • reusing (remembering) interface settings
  • full screen mode
  • improved workflow
  • GPU support (!)
  • Point lighting in 3D designer w/GPU

8.2 plugins

We'll have more samples in the youtube channel shortly. Look here:

New Tutorials with Anim8or

 We're continuing to explore creative capabilities in this free 3D program to combine Dogwaffle with another third dimension.

Here are some recent additions:

Oh, and if you enjoy the music in these videos, you might want to mention that on your social media, facebook, twitter etc... Thanks! The music was created by Dan Ritchie himself, yep, same as the author of Dogwaffle. Some tutorials feature music by DJ d'Artagnan, and yet some others with Jose Luis Suazo, aka eMaya. We're also looking at Mike Hutchen's music and hope to have some of it included in the future. These are all very different styles of music. Some is epic, some is quiet, and yet some is lively.

 New (lower) Pricing

Always check here for the latest:

and here too:


PD Pro 8 Howler and Artist
  • PD Pro 8 Howler is now priced at $99
  • PD Pro 8 Artist is now priced at $59
This is about 30-40% lower than in the past.

Similar moves have been implemented for version 7, where the PD Pro 7 Artist for example is at $39 now. Even better though, we're running a special price on that latter version at just $19.

PD Pro v6 promotion - again!

A bunch of new wafflers discovered PD Pro 6 in December. We've decided to re-instate the special promo, offering version 6 of the Howler edition at just $10 or thereabouts. Check our sales pages for current details.


Get ready for GPU accelerated v8.2 - coming soon! Consider upgrading with a discount coupon from the earlier version. If you have an earlier version but misplaced your discount coupon, just email us for a new one. The recent price reductions will make it even more affordable to upgrade!

The Ultimate Teaser: PD Pro 5 Free!

Dan is offering a special treat: PD Pro v5 for free. For a limited time? The future will tell. If you want to help Dan get some hand warmers and food while coding along for v8.2, please consider purchasing it for $5. But really, either way, it's yours for next to nothing.

(pst: insider tip --- see also if the 1/2-off promo for version 8 is still there as well!)
