Thanks to the unique features finalToon™ has to offer, we are pretty sure that you will be soon a part of the upcoming NPR (Non Photo Realistic Rendering) community of 3ds max users.
"For me, finalToon has many immediate use on production. I cannot name them all but there is the 'wireframe turntable' that I use on Calls for Offer; finalToon 'edge drawing' for production; 'wireframe glowing' in production shot, and the '3D to 2D shape' (.ai export) => to 3D shape (reimporting shape .ai inside 3Ds Max to use them as spline or 2D shape extrude fake planar 3D; and the help guide for 2D artist, to name a few...I use finalToon lines a lot for the 2D/3D models of architecture such as cathedrals and large buildings, sometimes with many highly detail carvings of antiquity. They do an amazing job."

finalToon is available as a stand alone product, and it is also part of finalRender
NPR Rendering in A Blink of An Eye!
finalToon™ comes deeply integrated into 3ds max with perfect support of its native features. By adding finalToon as a standard 3ds Max Render Effect, interactive rendering updates are possible without the need to re-render the whole scene over and over again.
finalToon supports many 3ds Max renderers, as long as they are 100% 3ds Max SDK conform they can be used to create Non Photo Realistic renderings with finalToon. However, the best solution for the creative artists is the combination of finalToon and finalRender. Its unique combination of powers multiplies the creative possibilities.

Non Photo Realistic or line renderers in general, struggle with effects like motion blur or raytracing. Not so finalToon 4 ! It offers true motion blur effects including deformation when used with finalRender as well as normal multipass motionblur with the Scanline renderer.
finalToon 4 is a great tool for Architects and Technical Designers; but it can also be used to create real master pieces of art! The combination of an artist's hatching and rendering accurate shadows and light open a whole new world of art in 3D rendering.
finalToon 4 is the premier choice for technical illustrators and architects. Technical illustration and architecture make use of Orthographic projection (Orthographic camera) very often. No more worries! finalToon 4 fully supports the Orthographic camera projection built right into 3ds Max.
Photo Real - Non Photo Real
Get creative - feed the artist in you! finalToon is not all about creating technically clean and straight lines. finalToon offers the power to unleash creativity and create never seen before artwork, sculpted with the help of a computer in the hands of a true artist!
AI & SWF File Export
finalToon 4 allows you to export your line renderings in 2 vector formats. Adobe Illustrator (*.ai) and Adobe Flash (*.swf) while the latter is no longer widely used, it is still one of the most compact formats supporting animation. Technical illustrators and web designers will love the Adobe Illustrator support.
finalToon Wrapper Material
finalToon 4 comes with a new enhancement that allows for easy line style assignment to all available materials in a scene. Now, the finalToon Wrapper Material can take any scene material. It enables finalToon line style control on a per material level.
2D and 3D Effects
Advanced 2D Line Drawing Effects and 3D Line Rendering Effect!
With finalToon, choose a slash pen to add even more "spice" to the line rendering. It helps you to avoid such a line overkill, by controlling the line thickness based on the distance to the camera.
No Confusing Patterns Anymore!
finalToon solves quality/ technical problems completely, by using true connected lines when rendering such line pattern effects. Use the Connected Lines feature to make sure that the continuity of the pattern works as expected.
Reflection/Refraction of Lines
Refracted lines? Is this possible?
Yes, finalToon does it! finalToon is able to reflect/refract lines correctly. Even bumpy glass is no problem. This is a real unique feature right now, a true line renderer like finalToon is even able to reflect/refract hidden lines.
