Project Dogwaffle

Project Dogwaffle is a range of affordable software for digital painting, editing and animation effects. Some of the best features are painting with particle brushes or animated brushes. You can import images or animation sequences to make your own brushes.

The picture on the right was made in PD Pro by spraying on some grass using a particle brush, importing a XenoDream animated targa file sequence as an animated brush, and painting with it using various opacities.

Some tutorials for using XenoDream with PD Pro are located at the above website.

DOF PRO

XenoDream v2 includes a Depth of Field filter that does the basics right. For a Photoshop plugin that does much more, you can't go past DOF PRO by Richard Rosenman. XenoDream can export depth maps so you can use it for XenoDream images too. http://www.dofpro.com
