Toon Shader

When making the film we discussed the idea of using Toon Shader, something we have never used before.

What is Toon Shader?

Toon Shader is a form of Cel Shading , it is a type of non-photorealistic rendering designed to make 3D CG appear to be flat by using less shading colour instead of a shade gradient or tints and shades. It is used to mimic the style of ‘cartoons’ or ‘comic books’ to give it a different texture appearance.


As this is something none of our group have ever used before it will be a real learning curve for us all of us.
