KeyShot 4.1 Beta - Toon Shading
« on: May 23, 2013, 02:55:02 am »
Testing out the Toon Shading material type new to 4.1

I really like this, I have used Sketch & Toon in Cinema 4D, but it had its drawbacks insofar as it was post-effect, so it was excluded from other rendering effects like DOF, GI etc.

This implementation of Toon Shading has no such limitations, there is instant feedback visually which is excellent. I think I will be using this quite a bit in the future...

More images to come

interesting, could be useful. Any controllable parameters (such as line thickness / contrast etc)?

Exciting!  Going to be invaluable for product instructions, manuals and the like.  Amazing how cross-disciplinary KeyShot is becoming.

Beautiful. Love it John. Robots just work so well together with NPR. This and caustics are my fav new features this release.

@edwardo - lots of control options _ contour angle, width, quality. options to show outline contour, interior edge contour and environment shadows. Along with settings for color and contour color.

@Simon - KeyShot  4.1 is releasing within the next few weeks :)
