The Dogwaffle Team project is published by Howler in 2021
Saturday, August 1, 2020 | Written by Jim Thacker
The developers of Howler, a hard-to-classify digital painting, animation, and video processing tool, released Howler 2021, the latest version of the software.
The update enables much larger brushes to be created, makes the user interface more tablet-friendly, and improves support for multi-monitor setups.
An idiosyncratic, inexpensive color package for natural media with many unexpected functions
Howler – originally Project Dogwaffle – was originally released two decades ago and is an idiosyncratic tool for digitally painting and creating content under $ 100.
Its core strength is painting natural media, but it offers a number of unexpected features ranging from terrain generation to particle shaping to video repair and rotoscopy.
New in Howler 2021: support for larger brushes, better workflow on tablets and multi-monitor setups
Howler 2021 is not such a radical update, though it may not come as a surprise as it only comes two months after the previous version as developer Dan Ritchie switched to a system of incremental releases.
The changes are primarily improvements to the workflow, including the option to create much larger brushes, with the size of the airbrush brush and the AA pen now set in relative units rather than absolute pixel values.
Users also get new options for rotating and rotating custom brushes.
The size and opacity sliders have been redesigned to make them more “tablet friendly”. Support for multiple monitors has been improved and the software now automatically remembers the last monitor used.

Howler 2021 is only available for Windows. It has a MSRP of $ 76.99, although the software is usually available at a discount.
