(Santa Clarita, CA April 26, 2005) Dan Ritchie, author of PD Pro Digital Painter, today announced the availability of the demo version for version 3.1.
"Even with our low prices for PD Pro, professional artists and hobbyists alike demand to try before buying,", said Ritchie. "We are very sensitive to the needs of our clients, and we hope that this new demo version will satisfy the need to explore and test the new features before committing hard earned money."
In addition to the new demo version, a new plugin (Spherize) was made available to the users of the free version of Project Dogwaffle 1.2. The Spherize plugin is particularly useful to make planetary bodies with lighting effects for space art. A new tutorial was also announced, showing the use of the powerful Spherize tool.
"While we put a lot of effort in making PD Pro the best ever painting software for PC available at very low cost, we also want to continue supporting the users of the free version 1.2 who cannot afford the commercial versions.", said Ritchie. "The release of this Spherize plugin through doggybag #3 is part of that commitment I made to give something back and support the artistic community."
Dan Also announced an update to the online help files, PD Help. It contains many valuable tips and ideas for painting and animating with PD Pro.
