Artitude is not simply a toon shader plugin. While it can do that very well, it is a general purpose artistic toolkit that puts the power of creative aesthetic control at your fingertips.

Non-photorealistic rendering (NPR) focuses on enabling a wide range of expressive styles for video imagery. In contrast to traditional video, which has focused on realism, NPR is inspired by artistic styles such as painting, drawing, technical illustration, animated cartoons, etc. NPR has appeared in movies and video games in the form of "toon shading", as well as in scientific visualization, architectural illustration and experimental animation.

Artitude uses state of the art NPR rendering techniques and allows you to combine them in powerful, unprecedented ways to create organic, animated effects never before possible. It incorporates years of my own experimentation and research in the field and experience gained in prior NPR plugins I have written.
