Unless you work in visual effects, you may not be aware of Howler: a unique digital painting application with additional toolsets for greenscreen keying, roto work, and even 3D rendering.
But at its core, Howler is a robust 2D painting tool: something its developers have set out to prove with Particle, their new ‘app-priced’ addition to the product family.
For $7.99, you essentially get Howler minus its animation features, retooled with a new vector-rendered UI designed for use with tablets and pen devices.
And, as its name suggests, in addition to conventional brushes, Particle features a versatile set of 3D particle brushes, or ‘orbicles’.
We can’t find a comprehensive feature list online, but the videos on the software’s homepage should give you a reasonable idea of Particle’s capabilities. The software is Windows-only.
