Originally posted on 11 June 2022. Scroll down for news of cut-down edition PD Artist 2023.

The developers of hard-to-classify digital painting, animation and video processing tool Howler have released Howler 2023, the latest version of the software.

The update adds a new filter for generating sky backgrounds complete with volumetric clouds, one-to-three-point perspective guides and a new Undo browser, and updates several of Howler’s existing filters.

An idiosyncratic low-cost natural media paint package with a lot of unexpected features
Originally released two decades ago, Howler – originally Project Dogwaffle – is an idiosyncratic sub-$100 digital painting and content creation tool.

Its core strength is natural media painting, but it throws in a number of unexpected feature sets, ranging from terrain generation and particle sculpting to video repair and rotoscoping.


New in Howler 2023: generate sky backgrounds with realistic volumetric clouds
New features include a new system for rendering sky background images with volumetric clouds.

The feature, which replaced the old Sky filter, can generate a range of cloud types, under different lighting conditions and different times of day, as shown in the video above.

Other changes include new one-, two- and three-point perspective guides to help compose images, and updates to Howler’s noise tools and Europa filter, which generates networks of crack-like forms.

Workflow improvements include a new Undo browser, the option to select a preferred GPU for GPU-acclerated features, and updates to the colour picker.

Updated 20 July 2022: The Project Dogwaffle team has released PD Artist 2023, the latest version of the cut-down edition of Howler. It has an identical feature set to Howler 2023, minus the animation tools.

Howler itself has also been updated, adding support for auto-keyframing on the timeline.

Pricing and availability
Howler 2023 and PD Artist 2023 are available for Windows only.

Howler has an MSRP of $76.99, although the software is usually available for $46.99 or less. PD Artist has a MSRP of $27.99, although it is also usually available at a discount.
