What's New in 9.6?

The new version is focused on improving the user experience on different kinds of hardware ranging from tablets to workstations, and adding new tools that are critical to visual effects, particularly in video content creation.

A new Demo Reel

        Also, see the new Demo Real - so many things you can do with Howler (based mostly on v9.5):

Great new feature! The duplicate video frame repair toolkit:

The new duplicate frame tool lets you manage video that has been damaged due to dropped frames or improper transcoding.

The tool helps you to find dropped or duplicate frames, then lets you manage them, either by deleting them, or interpolating new in-between frames via motion prediction technology.

See this video for more info:

Other new features:

  • Revamped greenscreen compositing tool with color matrix adjustments. See video:

  • Revamped camera stabilization/tracking and camera motion removal/restoration tool.

  • Revamped navigation: Zoom from pointer location instead of to the center of screen. Optional scrollbars for when the CTRL-Shift navigation isn't possible, such as on tablets.

  • New Vector Blur filter.

  • New easy garbage masking for video using Alt key +  rectangle/ellipse tools. This applies the rectangle or oval fill tools across all frames of an animation or video

  • New benchmarking tool, the Dogmark. Use Howler to test the speed of different processors using academic image processing functions.

  • Tools for single point matchmoving.

  • Support for higher resolution monitors: Fewer stacked panels at the top of the screen when a 1080p or higher-resolution monitor is available.

  • Revamped and animatable rubber sheet tool. (4 corner perspective warp)

  • GUI tweaks. Menu links to free transform tools for image and alpha.

  • Color replacer had an issue when animating h/s/v changes.

  • added CPU fallback for foliage ambient occlusion that was only available on GPU previously.

Reminder: Howler 9.6 is a pay update to those using versions 9.2 and earlier. However, a special discount price is available. Those who previously upgraded to version 9.5 will receive 9.6 for free. The upgrade discount is available to users of all versions, excluding free versions.
