Event Details

The Photoshop Users Group presents "PD Howler and Photoshop in Action"


 

Being part of a the Dogwaffle project created by Dan Ritchie, PD Howler is an effects program that you might want to consider for using along side Photoshop.

Here are  a few sample videos on PD Howler:

Project Dogwaffle contains a mixed bag of visual tricks for the casual artist and graphic artists. With natural media brushes that include bristle brushes and pigment lifting, the Howler edition of Project Dogwaffle also offer animation and video tools, such as rotoscoping, motion tracking and motion estimated interpolation. Howler also includes a GPU-accelerated ray tracing engine for 3D from elevation maps.  

In this presentation, you will see several ways to create pieces of artwork that will be eventually assembled in Photoshop through several layers.

This includes
- several ways to create a background sky
- Raytraced rendering 3D terrain from elevation map with Dogwaffle's Puppy Ray
- using particle and foliage brushes for foreground elements
After assembling it all in Photoshop, we'll flatten it to re-export it to Dogwaffle and enter another dimension: time. We'll add animation to it, for animated snowfall or lens flares that track a rising Sun.

Rats, the date shown on the eventbrite site is incorrect. This training is tomorrow February 27, not March 27.

 

Well if we're looking at low attendance, we'll know why
