Hi folks,

I was just wondering if there is a plugin, filter or convertor out there that will convert a Video clip or 3D Animation or still images into a cartoon/comic-style flash animation.  Ideally, it would provide options for reducing colours and adding outlines.

Cheers,

Luke

There are a few ways.

Swift3d from erain (http://www.erain.com) provides a full app and a plugin for 3ds Max. You can choose from several different shading optinos and fills like Gradient mesh, cartoon, etc..

If it is video you want, try Flix at   http://www.wildform.com/flix/

another great choice is Plasma, but it is a bit pricier, and they havent done any updates in some time. You can find it here http://www.discreet.com/products/#
