LiveToon catroon effects plug-in

Noise Industries has announced a new LiveToon plug-in, from its development partner DVShade, designed to increase the visual effects capabilities for Final Cut, Motion and After Effects. The latest plug-in is geared for creating and editing professional-looking cartoon, graphic novel, or sketch effects that can be added to footage. It includes over 10 integrated presets and provides a series of parameters such as posterization, saturation and cartoon edge lines.

LiveToon features four different halftone screen effects, such as Line, Hash, Dot and Circular, which can be used for making a more comic-book style atmosphere. Any presets made with the plug-in can be saved and added to a menu for quick access at later dates. Additional functions deliver GPU acceleration and high-precision rendering.

The LiveToon plug-in can be purchased from either the Noise Industries or the DVShade website and is priced at $50. Each copy of the plug-in is also capable of working with up to four different post-production apps.
