Sidegrading to PD Artist v10 (and getting Artist edition v11)?

Hi all. Whether you have been on the sidelines, staying with v9.6 of PD Howler and wondering if you'll want to upgrade to Howler v11 some day once it's out, or come to realize that perhaps you're not doing so much in terms of animation and video work, then perhaps you'll find the PD Artist sister product of interest.

PD Artist is lower priced than PD Howler, since it lacks the animation features and a bunch of filters that are in the Animated category. No working on videos or image sequences.

It does however still have the same brushes (even animbrushes) and 3D landscape creation tools, foliage, and many filters for visual effects.

We have recently launched the Artist edition v10, and are offering it with a future free upgrade to v11 of PD Artist.

If you are sure that you don't need tools for working on image sequences, animations or videos, be sure to check out PD Artist 10.

Not ready for PD Howler 10? How about PD Artist 10...er,...11?

We hope you enjoy working with PD Howler 9.6 - and we thank you for using it.

Perhaps you've come to realize you're not doing much work on animations and video? Is that what's holding you back from upgrading to v10?

If you don't work with video and animations, you might not be interested in spending money on v10, for a tool that you will only use in part. PD Howler might not be for you.

To address this, we are releasing the mid-level version of Project Dogwaffle: PD Artist.

PD Particles = entry level, mostly just for painting.
PD Artist = Paint, Visual FX and 3D
PD Howler = Paint, VFX, 3D and Animation/Video


Like PD Howler, PD Artist goes beyond PD Particles, in that it adds a lot of visual FX tools and filters. It also adds a 3D pipeline to model and render 3D landscapes from elevation maps. It adds a raytracer too, Puppy Ray. And in v11, that one gets quite a boost.

Wait,... did we say v11? Why would you buy PD Artist v10 when v11 is around the corner?

Well, don't worry. For PD Artist, we'll do something very special: Buy PD Artist now, and get v10. And then also get the upgrade to v11 once it is released to Steam. Not sure when that will be exactly, but it's probably just a few weeks away. Perhaps a little more. But if or when v11 of PD Artist is released, you'll have it too, as long as you bought v10 of PD Artist.

Hope to see you there soon!
