What makes it so special?
finalToon 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 with standard 3ds max tools, are lightning fast in finalToon. Suddenly, you can render thick outlines in the the blink of an eye!
finalToon, 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 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.
All shading and rendering can be 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 the NPR line rendering part. As mentioned before, any fully integrated 3ds Max compatible renderer can be used for the rendering and shading pass. However, when used in concert with finalRender 3.5 outline rendering becomes something else - finalToon shines at its best and shows a dramatic speed increase.
