Hello, here is another very quick update with the Dogwaffler of the Moment newsletter.

You may also want to view this and other online editions in HTML with images and links to videos. Start here:


Howler 9.5 is here... Now What?

As mentioned in the prior newsletter, Howler 9.5 has been released. If you missed the details, here's an updated page with what's new, and links to some new tutorials.

A good summary of new features, with many images, sample videos and tutorials, can also be seen in the general  features page:

You may want to bookmark it and keep looking for new features highlighted there too. It's also a good place to (re)discover what was added in some prior releases, especially if you're new to Project Dogwaffle. Find out about Puppy Ray, the ray tracing engine added in version 9.0. Or learn about Foliage brushes, first added in Howler 8.2. The Motion Prediction module was also a majr milestone, ever since v7.2. Can you find your own favorite feature? Do you focus on digital painting? Photo editing and enhancing? Or 3D landscapes? Or video and special visual effects, VFX? or all of the above?

If you're interested in going back in time even further, have a look at this old what's new list:

Do you remember, were you already a waffler when the first Optipuss particle brushes were revealed?

We have updated the 9.5 slideshow too, with new images and music by Jose Luis Suazo:

Happy Mountain 1
This is a rendering straight from 3D Designer through the Timeline. The one further below was then processed in the MPM 9Motion Prediction Module) to get a motion-estimated slow-motion version.

Snowstorm 01
This short clip shows a few pine trees made with a new preset for Foliage brushes, and snowfall added several times at various settings for size and speed and direction of snow flakes. You see, we've had a bit of a heatwave in Southern California last week, so it's refreshing just to look at this :-).

More Videos

As we write this, more videos are rendering, and will soon be posted to our YouTube channel. Have a look for them here:

Only few days left to save $10 on new Purchases

The launch promo is soon coming to an end. If you're new to Dogwaffle, take advantage of the automatic $10 discount. It expires end of September.

If you already have an earlier version of Howler, or PD Artist, or the older PD Pro and regular Dogwaffle 2 edition, use your discount coupon. Contact us for a new one if you can't find it. You'll receive discounts of 37%, 43%, even 51% and more, depending on which version you're upgrading or sidegrading from.

Here's a reminder of typical available discounts off the regular price.

- from PD v1.x, v2, v3, v4, v5, v6 or PD Particles:
37% off
- from PD Pro 7 (Howler or Artist edition):
43% off
- from PD Pro 8 (Howler or Artist edition):  
51% off 
- from PD Pro 9-9.2 (Howler edition only): 72% off
- from PD Artist 9 to Howler 9.5:  66% off

If you don't have your discount coupon, please contact us, telling us which version you have and where you got it, if you remember, even if it's a free version through Trialpay or other sites such as Daz3D, Renderosity, GarageGames/TorquePowered bundle of PD Particles, etc.... We want you to upgrade to the latest and greatest, to go purely ballistic, with Howler 9.5

To put it in perspective, if you upgrade from Howler 9.2 to 9.5 with the 72% discount, your cost is under $25.
If you upgrade from v8, it's around $44


That's it for now. We sincerely hope that you'll like the new features as much as we enjoy them. If you do, please don't keep it a secret - tell your friends on Facebook and other forums. And let's face it, there's really nothing wrong with opening the window to the neighbor's house and yelling "I love Dogwaffle!".

Thanks again for waffling and howling with Project Dogwaffle!

Team Dogwaffle
