The Dogwaffle 2.0d Patch
April 2004 - Introducing the Mouth plugin,
This patch introduces a tool (the Exposure Sheet) which is aimed at professionals doing character animation with lip sync. Assume you have a recorded voice, and you're animating your character to match its mouth with the sounds. The purpose of the exposure sheet plugin is to assist you in this task. Sounds coming from a wave file are analyzed and a visual is shown which helps you in determining the shape of the mouth for your animated character, for each frame throughout the animation. This is something which is heavily used in traditional facial animation, especially along with the onion skins.
There is also a new plugin for importing RAW image formats (*.raw). And more. See details below.
The prior patches (2.0b, 2.0c) are also rolled into this patch. So you can go straight from 2.0 to 2.0d without the need to install 2.0b or 2.0c patches first.
There is a newer patch or update available!
Download the file. Then double-click it to run it. The installer will look for v2.0 and you should make sure that the proper location is selected before you complete the installation. It will need a proper version 2.0 (full or upgraded), 2.0b or 2.0c installed to work.

Raw Images Support (Import/Export Plugin)
You will want to remember that the raw format doesn't necessarily hold the size and depth information in the file and there are various formats for how to store the internal color data, so you should make a note of such things as image size (width and height) and format. Perhaps this can be part of the filename.
