Howler 9 pre-orders and open beta

Holwer 9 Pre-order and Open Beta

PD Howler 9 is now available for Pre-Order. Those who order now will recieve both version 8.2, and the open beta version, and they will receive version 9 when it is released in September*. The price is $74, about $14* off the final full version price.

Howler 9 is the latest generation of the paint and animation software designed to assist FX artists in their daily work. It features not only natural media painting, but also animation and FX tools such as rotoscoping, motion prediction based retiming, and much more. Upgrades for current users will be announced shortly.

A short list of version 9 features is as follows:

  • Global illumination ray tracing with Puppy Ray
  • Side by side comparison mode
  • Improved AVI and animation support
  • Linux support with Wine. *Silver Status. Works with some issues. *Quite possibly Mac.
  • Updated features and filters
  • Integration and speed
  • More to come...

The pre-order offer can be found at:

Upgrade price

The upgrade price for Howler 9 is $24.99, about $10 off the final release price.

We now have the upgrade on the page at for current users who want to upgrade to version 9 when it is available. The same terms apply. They will receive the beta of 9, and a download link when the final version is ready. If purchased through this offer, they will also receive 8.2 if requested.

We don't have a final feature list yet, but you can see a fairly comprehensive list on my blog at

Is there an upgrade path for Dogwaffle users? I stil have 2.0 installed ;-)
If not, no worries, $74 is a fair price. Just asking.

The upgrade is now up on the page at for $24. I think we're going to eventually pro-rate the upgrade price depending on which version is being upgraded, but I'll honor the $24 upgrade until we get a system in place.

Coming along nicely. I certainly took advantage of the system lag for upgrading. LOL, I didn't go from version 2.0 but I'm sure there are plenty of version 7 users out there that may want to get up-to-date for this price point that wouldn't otherwise.
