About Anim8or 

This is a very impressive 3D program, created by Steve Glanville. It is free and has remarkable features. It can be used for 3D modeling (creating shapes, objects), character animation, and lots more. It can also be used to render fancy images that you can then use as brushes in PD Howler and many other imaging and media tools.

Need an example? Here is one of our favorite creations we've seen, made with anim8or:

The Ugly Dino, by Davide Maugeri

Anim8or & Dogwaffle / PD Pro / Howler


We are exploring ways to use Dogwaffle with Anim8or, as well as using Anim8or with Project Dogwaffle. For example, how to paint textures and map them onto the 3D objects. Or how to create 3D shapes to make new fancy brush images. Or creating animations with anim8or, to then further improve and edit with post work in Dogwaffle. You can also use image sequences from anim8or as animated brushes in PD Howler.

Thanks for visiting.
