Block interpolation demonstration in the video looks like magic. Amazing way to complete missing frames.

Keeping an eye on it Dan, though I still have yet to evaluate the free pd particle I got some time ago...and there might be quite a few things other that needs to be invested in before this..but it is interesting.
I recall showcase of filters for a godray effect which I thought was nice...though I have learnt a few tricks do work that magic with volumetrics quite fast in lightwave mixing with image maps.

the audio orbit brush control..sounds cool, ways to actually paint with some sort of sound effect driving intial forces.

Thanks for the heads up.

This is magic that has been around for a while but the straightforward way it is implemented here is indeed magic. Well done!

As always, another awesome Howler release, Dan! Congrats!

Been enjoying the pre-order/-release builds immensely. Hopefully, I'll be updating to the final build later this week on my Surface Pro 3.

IMO, for the cost, Howler is impressively powerful, the UI enables without being intrusive, and I've found even the pre-release builds very reliable.
