Project Dogwaffle is a light yet powerful freeware tool for artistic expression.

what is Project Dogwaffle, what's a Dogwaffle...?!
ok, so it's funny name, but what does it do?

Project Dogwaffle lets you be creative without the fear of mom or wifey yelling at you because you messed up your clothes again. No sudden spills, no funny fumes. You can paint, erase it, and try again, and again, and again......

the art of dogwaffle tutorial collection 2Project Dogwaffle version 1.2 (this freeware version) is based on the powerful achitecture of  Project Dogwaffle 2.0.  It's a light, yet powerful tool for artistic expression.  We felt that the aging prior free version (v1.11b) was in need of an update, since it was written for earlier operating systems and we wanted our new users to have the speed and power of our newer software architecture.

Dogwaffle 1.2 is not just a stripped-down save-disabled time-expiring trial demo of our full software - it's a fully functional version with some new features too. It is not save-disabled, there's no time-limit, no need to register, and there's no spyware or adware coming with it.

For users who want to get even more powerful tools, there is a choice of commercial versions at low prices.  There you will get even more more advanced features, more filters, more special FX and more animation support. That said, the freeware version 1.2 is a great tool for young artists who are just getting started, and for seasoned professionals alike.

Programmers will find that our plugin interface (SDK) supports all but one plugin command, so they can develop applications that work with either the full version or this free version. Additional features can also be found by way of the new Lua scripting gateway.

We have eliminated some of the fat from the program, to keep it lite: things like bulky help files have been excluded. However, help and tutorials are available online for free viewing and downloading.

For graphics support, we have included internal support for BMP files, as well as the native Targa format.  Single images as well as brushes and animation frame sequences can be loaded in these formats. If you have images in other formats you can easily convert from other formats to BMP or Targa with Irfanview or XnView and other image viewers, editors and converters.

Please keep in mind that v2.0 came out in January 2004, while v1.2 was built a month later. Since then, numerous patches and free updates were released for v2.0. This has added many more plugins, filters and features for the commercial version 2 which was at version 2.1b as of  August 2004. In February 2005, even more new features were added with the release of v3.0, which has in turn also received several new update patches since (v3.1, 3.1a, 3.2).
