(sorry, it may not up-to-date or complete... there is so much in this program :-) 

Project Dogwaffle is software, a program made for digital painting AND animating. You can load a video into the brush, and paint it across the frames of another video. There are also a number of great 3D capabilities, such as to create realistic landscape, mountains and valleys, which you might use as a basis to paint over them as well. It's a great tool to discover your inner artist. It's useful for contet creation in games, videos, illustrations and other types of graphic works. In the end, it's a tool. How you use it, that's how you turn it into an artist's tool.

Below you will find a few examples of features we've added over the many years. For more details, also refer to the main features list, and the complete What's New page.
