How to light with a toon canvas

fbyfby Posts: 5

I rendered using the new Toon type canvas but lighting was not reflected. Does anyone know what I should do?

My settings:

  • Michael 9
  • Shirt and pants
  • Distant light (Y rotate 90 degree)

I used this post as a reference for the canvas settings.

    This is the result of the Albedo canvas; the Albedo canvas is an input for the Toon canvas; it does not appear to reflect the lighting as well as the Toon canvas.

    The second one is the result of the Beauty canvas. The lighting is reflected.

    I don't know if the reason for this result is because it is still in Beta version.

    Albedo is the base colour (the amounrt of a standard light reflected) of the surface, so I would not expect it to show lighting.

    Thank you. So it looks like I will have to do a complex composite to apply lighting to the Toon canvas. Unfortunately, it's beyond my understanding.
