|What's Included & Features
- ===== What is PD Artist 2 ? =====
- PD Artist 2 is PD Howler (PD Pro 6), but without the animation tools. The result: a lean, mean painting machine! that's affordably priced.
- PD Artist 2 is built on the same howling-fast core engine as the one used in PD Pro 6 (AKA PD Howler) and thus benefits from interface improvements, multithreading, SSE2, speed enhancements and other optimizations found there.
- All of the features of PD Pro 6 are intact. Just the features used in animation have been removed for those who don't need them.
- Some animated filters were removed. Some filters that had animation options were modified to exclude the animated portion. The Animation menu is gone. Tools and plugins made for animations such as the Timeline editor, the brush keyframer, the exposure sheet and frame painter, those are tools made for animation or post work on videos and were removed. However, animated brushes are still included!
- ===== Why PD Artist 2 ? =====
- PD Artist 1, the predecessor, was aging.... It was time for an overhaul. If you can't afford the extended PD Pro 6, aka PD Howler 1, or if you simply don't need nor care for animation or video postwork, then PD Artist 2 is the tool for you!
