What’s new in version 2
XToon: An extended Toon Shader
-XToon is a custom material for Toon shading that gives new flexibility and control over shading. Traditional Toon or cel shading reduces smooth shading to a series of sharp bands using a one dimensional ‘map’ of color steps from full shadow to full brightness. XToon would be used to simulate fog or depth of field effects, or to reduce visual detail in areas of less significance. Because MODO can drive this detail with an external texture, the possibilities are endless.
-Surface Flow is a new way to change both NPR screen tiling parameters based on surface distance and angle, and the position of one or more texture locators. When using screen coordinates instead of UVs, this helps increase the illusion that the texture is attached to 3D objects in the scene, for a more natural, hand-drawn shading. For animation, it offers an additional way to eliminate the look of an object sliding under a fixed texture.
-Gradient channels in the Toon Material lets you accurately control the level and band positions for specular highlights and mirror reflections.
More Powerful Re-shading
-Most of the NPR Shaders now let you mix indirect illumination into the shading amount. Doing this gives you fine control of your lighting, and really takes advantage of MODO’s powerful global illumination rendering.
Your shading can now be rendered with Crayon or Scratch mode. Crayon mode uses the surface diffuse color in place of the shader’s ink color. Scratch mode used the final rendered color of the surface as the ink color.
Lastly, the simple Specular Drawing toggle has been replaced with a mixing level to give you better control specular highlights, and a companion Reflection Amount control lets you mix in your scene reflections.
What's included in the NPR 2 kit-8 NPR Shaders

-9 ready-to-render NPR scenes
-Tiling sketch map paint scene for making your own sketch maps
-XToon generator scene for making your own XToon maps
-Video tutorial that guides you through the creation of your own Sketch Map using MODO and the included Sketch Map/Tiling Texture painting scene
Software Compatibility-NPR 2 kit is compatible with 901 & 801. If you are on 701, or older, you still have access to NPR kit (version 1) in your account. If you are using 801, please make sure to uninstall NPR kit (version 1) before using NPR 2 kit.
