PSOFT Pencil+ 4 Features
PSOFT Pencil+ 4 for Maya is a non-photorealistic rendering plugin which can reproduce the appearance of pen-and-ink and color pencils drawings as well as animation cels.
This plugin makes it possible to reproduce in 3D the distinctive art style seen in Japanese animation and illustrations. It is also effective for creating non-photorealistic looks made from simple planes and lines and which are useful for creating simplified illustration drawings to convey ideas.
It is also great as a visualization tool for product and graphic design as well as for motion graphics and animation.
Materials with a high level of expressiveness.
Pencil+ 4 can reproduce the flat look of cel shading. It provides fine control over shading so you can attain the textures you are looking for.
Fast and beautiful line drawing.
Pencil+ 4 Line functionality can be used to create a wide range of richly expressive lines such as mechanically uniform lines, lines jutting out of objects for a rough sketch look, or lines with width modulation like those found in Japanese manga.
Powerful render elements and file output functionality.
Output lines to separate files for compositing. You can also output lines to EPS and PLD formats.
