We have been developing a newer, improved parser for OBJ/MTL files. We're also implementing a Physics Based Renderer (PBR).
Try it out - it's free! The evolving OBJ loader/viewer with PBR (coming soon)
If you don't have the latest Howler but want to follow this ongoing development, we make this available as a free standalone tool. In fact even if you do have the latest, you'll find gradually some updates there not yet released to Howler. Or you might be curious about the speed on another PC, with another processor, faster RM, GPU etc...- - stay tuned for more in coming weeks and months.

How to recover animations after a crash
Stored images are usually recovered but how about stored animations?
You can go to the Animation menu and Open a DWA animation, but will you remember where they were? Where is the Temp folder used by your installation of Howler? If you're on Steam, it might be a different location yet than the default straight installation's Temp folder.
A new feature will be seen if or when you experience a crash. The Temp folder can now be accessed from the splash screen you see when restarting PD Howler. This gives you quick access to the various files such as 'uNDO' (.ndo) files, and also '.dwa' files (DogWaffle Animation)
Thank you for waffling and howling!!
