 VRayToon is a very simple node that produces cartoon-style outlines on objects in the scene. This includes both simple, solid color shading but also outlined borders on the edges of the object(s).

The result of this rendering effect can now be stored in its own V-Ray Toon Render Element.

Basic Parameters

Image Modified


On – enables  – Enables or disables the VRayToon effect.

Line color – this is the The color of the outlines.

Width Type – specifies weather Specifies whether the width of the lines will be measured in Pixels or in World units.

Line Width – specifies Specifies the width of the outlines. You can connect a texture map here to control the line width.

Opacity  – opacity The opaqueness of the outlines. You can connect a texture map here to control the opacity.

Compensate Camera Exposure – when When enabled, the VRayToon will compensate the  Line Color brightness to adjust for any Exposure correction from a VRayPhysicalCamera.

Hide Inner Edges  – determines Determines whether lines will be created for parts of the same object with varying surface normals (for example, at the inside edges of a box).

Normal thresholdThreshold – this determines Determines when lines will be created for parts of the same object with varying surface normals (for example, at the inside edges of a box). A value of 0.0 means that only 90 degrees or larger angles will generate internal lines. Higher values mean that more smooth normals can also generate an edge. Don't set this value to pure 1.0 as this will fill curved objects completely.

Overlap thresholdThreshold – this determines Determines when outlines will be created for overlapping parts of one and the same object. Lower values will reduce the internal overlapping lines, while higher values will produce more overlap lines. Don't set this value to pure 1.0 as this will fill curved objects completely.

Do reflectionsReflection/refractionsRefraction – this will cause Causes the outlines to appear in reflections/refractions as well. Note that this may increase render times.

Trace biasBias – this parameter depends Depending on the scale of your scene, it this determines the ray bias when the outlines are traced in reflections/refractions.

Distortion Map – a The texture that will be used to distort the outlines. This works similar to bump-mapping and will take the gradient of the texture as direction for distortion. Note that high output values may be required for larger distortion. Screen-mapped textures work best, although World XYZ mapping is also supported.

Result AffectAffected Objects – specifies Specifies a list of objects which will be affected by the VRayToon.

As inclusive set – this option controls Controls the meaning of the Result Affect optionoption. When on the Result Affect is is considered as an "Include list" and when off the the Result Affect is is considered as "Exclude list."
