We have officially added support for the Pencil+4, plugin by PSOFT to our list of supported plugins.
PSOFT Pencil+ 4 for 3ds Max is a non-photorealistic rendering plugin that excels in reproducing the visual qualities of pen-and-ink drawings, color pencil sketches, and even animation cels.
This plugin offers materials with a remarkably high level of expressiveness, enabling rapid and visually captivating line drawings. It can faithfully recreate the distinct flat appearance of cel-shading and the unique textures found in pencil sketches. With precise control over shading, it empowers users to craft presentations where specific materials take center stage. Pencil+ 4 opens the door to the creation of revolutionary artistic textures, ushering in a new realm of creative possibilities.
