Ah, yes… google isn’t going to help… actually I did that video with a couple of my own personal WIP seq plugins. I did the key with RGBscreen and the toon effect was done with an early version of papstoon (a plugin that I coded after updating sirdude’s cartoon plugin because I thought that it would be interesting to see if I could make a better toon effect…)
I didn’t bother to post about it here since there seems to be very little interest in seq plugins anymore…
Can’t speak to the level of general interest in sequence plugins, but I, for one, am definitely interested. So, if you’d care to share the papstoons plugin? (Couldn’t find it by way of google, either.)
Kent Mein’s Cartoon plugin, win version, crashed Blender 2.49b on both my computers, one a Vista SP1 machine, and the other XP SP3. So I’ve given up on his for now.
As you seem pretty savvy, do you know if the “edge” controls on Blender’s scene/render/output box work on imported videos? I had though I might achieve a “toon” look with that function. It works for me with Blender internally created models, but not imported video. (I’m a rank beginner, but usually don’t ask for help unless really bewildered!)
I select window type/Video Sequence Editor, then split the screen, and in the new window get Image preview. Then I add and select a video file. Then in the button panel I select Scene (F10), and you see in the bottom of the button window on the far left some "output/render layers tabs. I select the ouput tab. Under that tab are located the edge and edge settings., which I fiddle with. I had thought that rendering would process the video selected with the results of the edge controls, or at least one frame, but I get no edge effecrts when I render.
