(San Diego, California, July 26, 2005) Dan Ritchie, author of PD Pro Digital Painter and Project Dogwaffle Paint and Animation software, announced that he plans to attend the BOF meeting hosted by during SIGGRAPH at the LA convention center on Thursday August 4 at 2 pm.

"Since last month's 3.2 release we've been busy working on a retail version for our UK publisher, and have added new features and speed optimizations which will probably also be part of the next free update patch for 3.x users.", said Ritchie. "I look forward to meeting our artists and heroes who make daily use of Dogwaffle for their creative needs."

Amongst the things that will be mentioned:
  • speed optimizations, realtiming of filters
  • tutorials on planetary surfaces with new displacement by Swap buffer
  • new plugins from 3rd party developers for making custom brushes (CopyShape)
  • editing images from flight and train simulation games with the free plugins
  • newest Dogwafflers of the moment
  • the oldest Dogwaffler known: a 93-year old Hemet, CA resident - who's the youngest?

There will also be raffles of software and possibly hardware.

We're also going to have a Dogwaffle shootout - bring your laptop and mouse or tablet and be prepared to draw something in 15 minutes. You may want to pre-load Project Dogwaffle 1.2 (the freeware version) to be ready. Or we'll have CDs with it to install.

What will you need to draw?

Hint: a furry animal which is part of Dan Ritchie's novel.
