Hi BC Rice,
You are a gem! Thank you very much. I am going to try your instructions now and see how I get on.
I can’t understand though, why DCG sell their plugin (I can only speak of Toon Pro) with no instructions. Without your instructions I would have had no idea that every shader had to be changed. I thought it was done automatically when you select Toon Pro on the uppermost shader in the texture room.
I think they assume that everyone is an experienced animator, but some of us are just starting out and looking for plugins to make life easier, not more confusing.
I hear what you are say regarding maybe having to keep the 2d and 3d in separate projects. I would like my characters to talk, but I thought I would have been able to still toon my characters and then use Mimic pro to make them speak. I actually prefer the lip syncing I get from my 2d art, using Papagayo and then importing the .dat file into Anime Studio.
What I may do is use my 3d art to create the backgrounds and props.
You mention YaToon in your instructions. I don’t have that plugin and have searched for it all over the net, but it seems it is no longer available.
Thanks again for all your uploads. Really appreciated!
