Great tutorial, thanks ^^
Thanks for this !
I can't tell you how long I have been looking for a good way to do cartoon rendering in Poser.
I have been using Poser since waiting for the 1.0 release to finally go on sale.
I have always wanted to have good "cartoon style" rendering.
I have used all sorts of different Photoshop Actions over the years trying to get good cell shading. None have been very satisfactory. I have used the "z-flatten" strategy as a python script, which works pretty well but is cumbersome. I have messed with the sketch rendering method, but never found a magic setting that gave good results. I have used MANY other methods over the years that I have since even forgotten!
So, THANK YOU, DWM, for a *terrific* and yet SIMPLE method that seems to have very good results from my tests so far!
Thanks for making this into a tutorial, DWM! I'm glad you found this out. I love your results!
Very interesting and well explained tutorial. Thanks!
Is this method effective for rendering nighttime images as well as ones using different light colours, such as red lighting or green lighting?
Amazing discovery! I'm currently working on a musical video that is cell shaded but using 3ds max9. The technique is very time consuming and with multiple parameters to adjust i just might be at risk of not meeting the deadline. But urs is not that stressful since it has to do wit lights. I really wish i could find a short-cut for cell shading in 3ds max.
Thanx for sharing.
Now that's what I call thinking outside the box, I might give this a go myself, Hey if you do a sketch render and overlay it on a multiply layer you'll get the toon edges. Great tutorial!!!
Incredible!!! :D I can't wait to try this!
Thanks for such a wonderful tutorial! You've done a great job explaining, and your results are sensational! :) Thanks so much for sharing! *hugs*
Can't Find Diffuse IBL setting, does it work with Poser5?
Thank you very much, great job, excellent tutorial !!!
You can also manipulate the cartoon rendered image further by changing the light probe image and it's coloration/tinting...that will have a noticeable effect on the final render as well.
Thankyou excellent tut!
I don't get it. I'm following your steps verbatim, and it doesn't look like that.
Great tip. I had tried all kinds of cartoon shadings and settings, but let me tell you, I never tried the Diffuse IBL light. You can't imagine how grateful I am. You rock!!!
