PSOFT Pencil+ 3 Overview

Pencil+ 3 is a non-photorealistic shader plug-in for 3ds Max that produces pencil sketch-like strokes. It produces images that look like pen drawings or color pencils as well as flat presentations similar to animation cels.

High Level Expressiveness

You can reproduce in 3D the distinctive art style of Japanese animation and illustrations. The modifier functions newly introduced in Pencil+ 3 make it possible to create effects that are difficult to achieve in 3D, such as incorrect shading for solid objects or bold scenographic effects through extreme perspective deformations. Pencil+'s unique non-photorealistic expression is also useful to produce explanatory figures that help simplify and convey the main point of an explanation. We also recommend it as a visualization tool or a motion graphic utility for product or graphic design.

Beautiful Line Drawings

”Lines”: They are essential for non-photorealistic rendering. Pencil+ performs high speed rendering of intersecting lines between objects, etc. It offers plenty of features suitable for animation, such as pen pressure simulation, a distinctive characteristic of hand drawn style illustrations; using a texture map to adjust the thickness of the lines of special sections in model data and more. Beautiful line drawings, even technical illustrations using hidden lines, are realized using simple settings.

Graphical Interface

Pencil+'s interface is designed to be graphical and easy to use. Optimal results can be obtained in a short time because lines and materials are configured interactively in a way that feels like using a painting program. Even new users will be able to operate it smoothly.
