Cool! Not familiar with Howler but shall look into it.
Price seems reasonable.

Pro-tip: You, as a business, probably should use a more legit email address rather than a Hotmail account. :)

:twak: And please - pretty please - use RELEASE, rather than SHIP, henceforth. Software stopped being shipped a decade ago. Every time I see that something has "shipped" on cgchannel.com (just about everything), I want to scream, for some stupid reason. :cursin: It just rubs me all wrong in every direction, I guess...

I also shouldn't have a dog themed paint program on a squirrel themed website.

Now I feel just awful. I'm really sorry Dan. That was not very nice to post that. I need to let go of my pet peeves. Ugh, I can be such a d-bag. Your stuff really looks cool. And it is wonderful that there are affordable alternatives like yours out there. Keep up the great work! :-)

Ok, sorry. I also am too just being silly. I'm really a cat person.

That's a cool video. Not familiar with howler. Can it be used like Vue and import cameras form lightwave?

Howler has always looked cool. I'm sure you get this question a lot, but will there ever be a Mac version? :)
I know there is a lot of enthusiasm for Howler over on the Carrara forums at Daz...I'm so jealous...

Phillip, who does most of our marketing stuff, is a Carrara guy. I do the development, and I'm a LW guy since Videoscape and Modeler 1.0.

Agreed 100%, really would be nice if there were a Mac version of Howler!

We spent a lot of time getting it to run with Wine, so there's some possibility of running with Wine under Mac OS, but we haven't tried.
