Remember, today is last day for the 50 % off for reg. iClone users for this great tool. It should have free update to next version included. Read about here. It is the best you can get in my opinion - it is expensive but 50% off help a lot.

 

Remember that Genetica  is a stand alone program who can be used by every one and with any other software. @safegaard

Blender: Freestyle render engine by Filippo Veniero

Blender: Freestyle render engine by Filippo Veniero | Machinimania | Scoop.it
If you're looking for a good, open source renderer, look no further than Freestyle for Blender. Looking for a photoreal finish or a cartoon? Freestyle can do both.

Via Igor Tkachenko
Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:
Introduction

Every day, 3D artists spend hours working on their computers trying to get photorealistic images, but sometimes we need to have images styled more like a comic; luckily Blender can do them, using the Freestyle option! Freestyle is an edge and line based non-photorealistic render engine. It generates 2D line drawing from a set of objects; lines can be stylized in a lot of ways (different line colors and thickness or by adding random displacements) to produce artistic (hand drawn) or technical (blueprint) styles. Freestyle for Blender has two complementary modes for line stylization: the Parameter Editor and the Python Scripting mode.

"This is a Pulp Fiction spoof… The speech is Samual L Jackson’s Ezekiel_25.17 monologue and the music is all from the film. It took about 4 months worth of spare evenings and started off simply as an excuse to have another try at lip-sync. It just grew into a slightly more mammoth task!"

These features are massive and are going to change the way we use Blender in the future.

Here’s a brief explanation of each feature and how to start using them.
