Thanks to the sponsors of the Blender Foundation (BF) Development Fund, a full-time job position has been granted for the development of non-photorealistic (NPR) rendering capabilities in Blender. The project duration is three months from the 1st of April, 2014. The proposed work components include Freestyle performance improvements in terms of time and space, better artists experience in interactions with Freestyle, and more general Blender development, all in view of an extensive use of Freestyle and Blender NPR features in the production of the Gooseberry open film. Below you will find a document summarizing the project elements foreseen in the upcoming months:
As a fresh restart, this blog is going to be used for posting updates on relevant activities in the newly funded project.
Interested Blender artists are kindly invited to the bf-blender-npr mailing list for discussing Freestyle and NPR topics.
