Dan Ritchie announces new Tutorial CD and 2.0c Patch for Project Dogwaffle

Santa Clarita, CA – March 22, 2004 – Dan Ritchie, developer and publisher of the award winning paint software Project Dogwaffle, announced the availability of the newest patch, version 2.0c, and new tutorial CD to help quickly get acquainted with painting in Dogwaffle..

"In February we had released a first patch (2.0b) with enhancements such as more speed improvements and new plugins. This newest patch (2.0c) now brings even more improvements." said Ritchie. "Several plugins didn't support alpha and have been updated. There are also new and updated plugins and filters. For advanced users there's also a shortcut to temporarily disable the overhead of recording into memory for Undo/redo, so that you can work even faster on slow machines."

"At this point however we think that what our new customers will want the most are introductory tutorials to quickly get started and learn the basic uses and features of Project Dogwaffle. To that effect I have recorded video and audio tutorials and we're releasing them on CD. A few of them are available for free viewing, these may be all you need to get started. The whole set of tutorials is now available on CD, either by themselves (tutorials only) for those who already have Dogwaffle, or packaged with a light edition of Dogwaffle 2 (a new v1.2) or even with a full version of Dogwaffle 2.0 including the latest 2.0c patch. The CD contains about 90 Mbytes of video captured tutorials with audio as a collection of AVI files in WM9 format."

There are many uses for Project Dogwaffle, from drawing and sketching to painting and animating.
