Pencil+ 4 Bridge can be downloaded from the "Download" section of the PSOFT User Page.

Pencil+ 4 Bridge for 3ds Max / Maya / Unity / Blender is a utility used to write Pencil+ 4 Material (*1) 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 host applications for greater convenience.

*1 Pencil+ 4 Bridge for Unity can only write and read Pencil+ 4 Line settings.

The following Pencil+ 4 settings are included.

  • Pencil+ 4 Material
  • Pencil+ 4 Line

Importing with Pencil+ 4 Bridge's [Replace] option replaces Pencil+ 4 Materials and Pencil+ 4 Lines in the scene that have the same names as ones being imported. Please use names for Materials, Lines and Line Sets that can be used by all host applications. You can find more details by looking at the sample files.

*Rendering results vary based on the renderer's algorithm.
*Parameters that are not compatible between various Pencil+ 4 products cannot be included.
