Welcome to finalToon Release 3 (R3)
Finally, there is a choice for more quality - more effects- more individual renderings! Your renderings will never look the same anymore. finalToon R3 opens up a whole new world of illustration and cartoon rendering effects for 3ds Max 2008-2011 and 3ds Max Design 2009-2011 (32 and 64 bit). For such a long time, there has been nothing to choose for 3ds Max users. A highly accurate line and cartoon rendering system like finalToon R3 was just missing.
The wait is over! Thanks to the unique functions and features that finalToon R3 has to offer, we are pretty sure that you will soon be a part of the upcoming NPR (Non Photo Realistic) rendering community of 3ds Max and 3ds Max Design users.
finalToon is available as a stand alone product, and it is also part of finalRender R3 and finalRender R3 SE!
What makes it so special?
finalToon R3 is a full blown True Line Renderer (TLR), with unparalleled line quality and rendering speed. Cartoon or line rendering scenes that take a long time to render within 3ds Max, are lightning fast in finalToon R3! Suddenly, you can render really fat outlines of an object without the wait and inaccurate dirty look of a shader based solution.
finalToon R3, being a TLR (true line renderer) doesn't mean that finalToon has to replace your favorite renderer to do shading or other special effects. finalToon R3 is implemented as a true 3ds Max "Render Effect", and so you can enjoy all the great benefits of such an implementation! You may adjust line styles in realtime without the need to re-render the whole scene over and over again. This is what we call "The Choice of Quality". 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 of today. And even better - finalToon R3 perfectly supports finalRender® with all the advanced options, including GI rendering for cartoon style objects!
What's new in R3 ?
finalToon R3 accelerates all line renderings and enables you to render many more outlines and objects than before. The line rendering algorithms have been worked over in this R3 release to perform much better, with increasing image quality.
New Line-Styles have been added and hatching offers now a whole new level of quality and control!
Support for special camera types has also been added, by implementing the revolutionary new fT-Outline shader, with its unique way of rendering outlines as a shader.
