So I'm left wondering where we turn to for making the best use of Maya 7's Toon Shader? The info they include in the manual is fairly pathetic and I'm left blindly playing with the variables in the shaders, which while fun, doesn't always get the results I'm looking for.

Toon Shader

I did a toon shade test of the "silly cat" character for the dvd cover and found it very challenging to get a clean line when I deviated from the standard default line, that is when I added modulation to the line the quality broke down. I've noticed that the toon shader is quite sensitive to the geometry, and any problems with the topology dramatically effect the line rendering. I've had better results pulling a line pass in the composite with edge detection, which I think can be done directly in Mental Ray.

One of the things I've been thinking about is added a toon shading class to the existing super-toon line-up, although this would really depend on the level of interest.
