About Pencil+

PSOFT Pencil+ 4 for Maya is a rendering plugin for Autodesk Maya which can reproduce the look of animation cels.

The plugin makes it possible to reproduce in 3D the distinctive art style seen in Japanese animation and illustrations. It is also effective for creating non-photorealistic looks made from simple planes and lines and which are useful for creating simplified illustration drawings to convey ideas. It is also great as a visualization tool for product and graphic design as well as for motion graphics and animation.

Pencil+ 4 Bridge for Maya Planned for Release

Pencil+ 4 Bridge for Maya / 3ds Max is used to write Pencil+ 4 Material and Pencil+ 4 Line settings to file and read them back. The data is managed as a file separate from the scene file, so it can easily be applied to another scene. Thanks to the Bridge, Pencil+ 4 settings can be shared between Maya and 3ds Max for greater convenience.
