'I am working as the system administrator at Cartoon-Film for over 5 years now. I was responsible for setting up all the hardware required to make this movie, starting from workstations to setting up the render farm needed to render most of the movie in-house. We used 3DS Max 2008 for all of the 3D shots, and they were all rendered with cebas finalRender and finalToon.' Karsten Fuhrmann, Cartoon-Film Animation Studio
finalToon NPR Material
The finalToon NPR Shader is a simple, yet extremely versatile shader. Its beauty lies in the ease-of-use and fast setup to achieve non-photo-realistic renderings in minutes of applying it to objects in your scene.
finalToon Wrapper Material
finalToon 3.5 comes with a new enhancement that allows for easy line style assignment to all available materials in a scene. Now, the finalToon Wrapper Material can take any scene material. It enables finalToon line style control on a per material level.
Line Types - The Power Lines
finalToon offers a lot of basic line types on which you can build up unlimited variations. In the illustration above there are just a few of them.
2D and 3D Effects
Advanced 2D Line Drawing Effects and 3D Line Rendering Effect! With finalToon, choose a slash pen to add even more 'spice' to the line rendering. It helps you to avoid such a line overkill, by controlling the line.
Noise Lines - Noise On Your Lines!
Sometimes the lines do not exactly match each other like they do when you draw a fast scribble by hand. finalToon has a great feature to simulate a hand drawn and inaccurate line style.
Anti-Aliasing - Avoid Pixel Mud!
Bad aliasing causing Moir and destroying the continuity of thin lines. With the high quality and fast anti-aliasing of finalToon you can display the thinnest lines without any problems!
No Confusing Patterns Anymore!
finalToon solves quality/ technical problems completely, by using true connected lines when rendering such line pattern effects. A useful tool will be the Connected Lines feature.
Reflection/Refraction of Lines
Refracted lines? Is this possible?
Yes, finalToon does it! finalToon is able to reflect/refract lines correctly. Even bumpy glass is no problem. This is a real unique feature right now, a true line renderer like finalToon is even able to reflect/refract hidden lines.
