    Hi all. Today we are starting to ship Howler 11.

    Puppy Ray is significantly improved with reflection/refraction, improved global illumination, hardware textures, visible sun...



    There's also numeric entry throughout the program
    Adjustable gradient tool
    Contour gradients
    Improved image sampling
    Improved crop tool
    Callouts and vector objects
    Improved Rotoscoping
    An extensive new API, as seen on our PDHowler youtube channel, and lots more...

    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.
    Humans are pretty much monkeys with car keys.

    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. 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.
