Here’s a little test rendering I did the other day, to test out cartoon rendering in 3D max, an effect I will use some day. (If I didn’t have 1:30 of rocketmen episode 3 filmed already then I’d start using cartoon rendering)

As you can see, the results are very slick :-) unfortunately you have to jump through a few hoops to get the shadows to work, and they don’t work 100% the way I’d like them :-(

Ah, cell shading. Very nice. No critiques right now, but I may have some later.

I dont have much to say execpt…It looks good. Much like the comics in the lego magazines (I should get a new subscription….havn’t had once since 1995). Now all ya gotta do is create a whole cartoon and et it aired on Saturday mornings.

Question: How long did that take to render in comparison with a normal render of that scene?

Slightly longer than a normal render, also it takes FOREVER if you have a really detailed scene. Plus there are some “tricks” involved with getting a cartoon shading look out of the normal renderer, and getting shadows to work. :|

That looks cool!

Maybe you could add some sorta ‘blooper’ on the end… in the cartoon rendering.

Glad to here that Rocketmen 3 is in production!
