Red Giant's ToonIt 2.1 (Academic Pricing) allows you to transform your video footage into cartoon style easily and quickly with unique algorithms. Its five plug-ins free you from time-consuming techniques like rotoscoping and hand painting, and give precise control over styles, shading and outlines. Version 2 adds the Heat Vision plug-in (mimicking the look of the Predator movies), 14 new styles, new presets, and faster output.
Note: Only eligible students and teachers are allowed to purchase this product for academic purposes.
Add Interest to Ordinary Images
Keep your toon'ed version as close to the original video as you'd like while adding strong visual interest. The ToonIt plug-ins preserves the sharp edges and color fields of the footage. Choose from many artistic stylizations, including the new Marker, Woodcut, Scratchboard and Conte outline styles. ToonIt transforms your video with just a few clicks.
ToonIt's cartooning algorithm is so smart and elegant that you will be able to use its default settings most of the time, and Version 2 contains more than 40 presets. The style options are easy to use and output is optimized, making your workflow fast and easy. No other cartooning solution produces such good results with so little tweaking.
Believable Cartoon Effects
Other cartooning effects use posterization algorithms to create a quick-and-dirty cartoon effect. This doesn't create a believable look for the human form and face, and there tends to be a lot of jitter from frame to frame. Red Giant ToonIt uses unique algorithms created by Toonamation to transform your image into beautiful cartoon shading and lines.
With new 40+ style presets for After Effects, FCP and Motion, getting great results is even easier in version 2. A reorganzied interface and new controls grouped by style, give you more flexibility. Please note: Presets do not work in Premiere Pro.
Choose from many cartoon styles, including Flat Cartoon, Graphic Novel, Comic Noir (b&w), Half-Tone (dots), Stipple, High Contrast, Poster Paint, Marker, and Gouache.
"Real" Cartoon Styles
The Roto Toon plug-in generates colorful flat shading, while the Outlines Only plug-in creates realistic line drawings.
More Outline Styles
The Blacklight Edges plug-in makes your image look as if the edges have been placed under a blacklight, while the Goth Toon plug-in flattens the image for a high-contrast look. The Marker style makes your footage look like it's been sketched on paper with colored pens, while Scratchboard options gives an edgy, hand-carved look to your footage.
New Blur Otion
All ToonIt 2 plug-ins now have a new Supersmart Blur option, which uses blurring percentage, test radius, and blur radius to create a smooth but still detailed result that helps generate better output with less spurious lines and colored areas.
The new Heat Vision plug-in simulates infrared camera footage to easily mimic the look from the Predator movies.
ToonIt 2 has been optimized for faster output, especially for HD source with 3-4x speed improvement across the board. Render options allow you to make the right tradeoffs between quality and render time.
Improvements in ToonIt create smooth cartoon-like output with very little jitter or you can choose styles with a lot of variation in the drawing style over time.
