(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.

This was a paid upgrade for users of PD Howler 9.0-9.2.


We're adding a Cloud modeler, and cloud rendering





We're adding shading by ambient occlusion to foliage brushes




 

We're adding shading and lighting in 3D Designer.
This includes ambient occlusion too.



erosion and shadows and slope  

We're even adding slope-dependent snow, erosion and raytraced shadows to 3D Designer. Some of it is also useful for subsequent Rendering in Puppy Ray. Now you get landscapes with rivers and valleys. This also helps create more realistic rock textures.



 



New in Version 9


wowsers
Puppy Ray - the ray tracing tool to generate beautiful landscapes in 3D from simple elevation maps and colormaps, even with sky maps and global illumination.
