finalToon R3.5 is a non-photorealistic renderer (also known as a 'toon' renderer) for 3ds Max 2011-13 and 3ds Max Design 2011-13. finalToon is an impressive True Line Renderer that creates 2D cartoon and technical illustrations with unparalleled line quality and rendering speed.
FinalToon R3.5 is available as a stand alone product and is also part of finaRender R3.5 SE.
All shading and rendering is done with the production proven 3ds Max Scanline Renderer. When the scanline pass is done, the finalToon line renderer 'pops in' and takes over to produce one of the best line renderings available today. Even more impressive, is that finalToon R3.5 fully supports finalRender and all of its advanced options, including Global Illumination rendering, which means your cartoon style objects will interact with your GI solution! A truly incredible and powerful combination!
finalToon R3.5 accelerates all line renderings and enables you to even render many more outlines and objects than before. The line rendering algorithms have been worked over in this Release to perform much better with increasing image quality.
Since finalToon R3.5 is implemented as a 3ds Max Render Effect; you can enjoy all the great benefits of mixing and matching 2D and 3D elements in one render pass without having to sacrifice one renderer for another!
Multiple styles of technical illustration and Cel Shading looks are supported and you can create your own impressive naturalistic effects such as woodcut-style cross-hatching or pen-and-ink drawings with our advanced controls and then save them to your own library for quick application whenever you need that particular look.
Another feature that makes finalToon R3.5 so special is its ability to render reflections and refractions of all ink lines, along with their relevant effects! This feature is currently unique to finalToon and is a huge benefit for 3ds Max users.
Finally, it is worth noting, that with a number of 3ds Max users being heavily involved in web content design, finalToon R3.5 now offers a robust web-enabled output solution complete with Shockwave Flash and Adobe Illustrator support.
