If you're a artist that needs to tease 2D artwork from your 3D scene, than this tutorial of the Daz Studio plugin Line Render 9000 is for you! Over 5 hours of content BY THE CREATOR of Line Render 9000, it is a must watch tutorial.
Liner Render 9000 is an incredibly powerful and flexible tool for creating Line Art from a 3D scene. It uses a unique setting called ColorID that is a non-destructive parameter that is used to assign particular colors to the materials in the scene in order for the application to understand where lines should be drawn.
Because it is and ADDITIONAL parameter, it means that you can render the scene for 2D and then turn around and re-render the scene for 3D results without changing the material parameters.
There are six cameras that come standard with LR9K
- Main Camera
- Toon 2-Tone Camera
- Toon Camera
- Fresnel Reflected V Camera
- Edge Blend Camera
- Shadow Opacity Camera
Each of these cameras looks at the model and it's underlying geometry in a slightly different way in order to decipher where to draw the lines and each of these six cameras will create two renders. The first based on what it interprets based on your settings and the second, the lines, based on the first. So in effect, the artist has 12 different layers in one render to combine in limitless possibilities and you can always add more cameras.
When you're trying to decide what setting to tweak for a camera, multiple passes of the same camera may be added to the scene and the settings all different for each camera giving the artist incredible power over zoning in on the right settings for the scene. It is not a tweak/render/look product, however that's how this tutorial is presented in order to give the customer a clear understanding of what's going on.
These tutorials total have over 5 hours of content and are available individually or as a bundle AND as a bonus, Jonathan has provided three new scripts to automatically assign the color IDs so the laborious manual part of it has been removed!
As you've come to expect from Meshology, All the Tutorials are Closed Captioned in English as well as indexed so that the user can easily jump from topic to topic as they work their way through the processes. You're also provided with a PDF file with time code for reference of the videos. This document also includes additional information for quick reference such as how to load the bonus ColorID Scripts.
