DL3D XToon shader

The DL3D XToon shader is a cartoon shader (XTOON stands for extended toon shader) based on the articles of French researchers (Pascal Barla, Joƫlle Thollot and Adrien Bousseau amongst others). DL3D XToon is working as a mental ray 3.5+ shader for mental ray standalone, compatible with 3ds Max, Maya and Softimage XSI (amongst others). More info and dowloads here.

The shader is well worth checking out (you need version of 3DS Max 8 upwards for the Maxers amongst you), as are the individual publications from the three researchers mentioned above (I've listed their personal websites below).
