The Toon-A-Matic plugin gives your clip a "Toon Shaded" look that has been compared to A Scanner Darkly or those Charles Schwab ads. This filter uses a proprietary Toon Shader algorithm to produce a look similar to conventional 'Cel Shaders'. It also has a "Caricature" setting to produce organic distortions to exaggerate or minimize features. The effect works best on HD material.
It is my first FxPlug plugin, and as such, it is available in both motion and Final Cut Pro. It requires Final Cut Studio 2, and the Leopard operating system.
Although Toon-A-Matic uses only a few simple controls (Brightness, Line Level, Line Brightness, Line Contrast, Line Saturation, and Caricature Level), a wide range of "toonish" looks are possible.
