Changes Since the Previous Version

[New features]

  • Added the "Pencil+ 4 Line Renderer" which processes only the drawing of Pencil+ 4 Lines.
  • Added the new PLD file format to "Pencil+ 4 File Output".
  • Added compatibility with 3ds Max 2019.

Please refer to the release notes for information about fixes.


  • PLD files
    PLD is a dedicated data format for editing Pencil+ 4 Lines with Pencil+ 4 Line for After Effects (link to Japanese page).
  • Pencil+ 4 Line Renderer
    The Pencil+ 4 Line Renderer is a simple renderer which only performs Pencil+ 4 Line computation. It can skip material computation and render only Pencil+ 4 Lines. When using the Pencil+ 4 Line Renderer, rendering is performed with a white background. It can be used for Render Elements and Pencil+ 4 File Output.
