Luxology's NPR tackles non-photorealistic rendering
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – Luxology’s new NPR Kit for Modo is a non-photorealistic rendering package that allows expressive, hand-drawn looks and animations to be achieved in 3D renderings. Modo 601 users will now be able to access classic art styles when rendering anything from product visualizations to anime and fine art.  

With material options for ‘toon’ shading, stippling, halftones, and edge rendering, the NPR Kit is a quick path to creating unique representations of architecture, products and characters in Modo. Its ability to mimic traditional styles like blueprints, sketches and chalk drawings, makes it a valuable resource for technical illustration and cartoon production. 

The eight shaders included in the NPR Kit offer a high degree of artistic control. The NPR Kit also includes pre-built materials, still and animated backgrounds, sample NPR scenes, Sketchmaps, and tutorials.

The NPR Kit is available immediately for use with Modo 601 on both Mac OS X and Windows operating systems. And while its suggested retail price is $199, Luxology ( is offering a special price of $149 for a limited time.
