Hi @Lee Griggs, Is there any way to do the same effect of the Surface Luminance in Cinema 4D? Thanks!

You can use the Surface Luminance node in Maya. More information can be found at the end of the tutorial.

The facing ratio shader can be used to create a toon shading effect. A tutorial can be found here.

As this is a frequently asked question we have provided both the question and answer in this thread.

Lee, I stuck with this method here, in Houdini:

  • Delete the 2d texture of the Ramp and connect a Facing Ratio shader to the U parameter of the UV Coords in the Ramp (ensure that the Ramp Type is set to U also).

Any suggestion how to connect the Facing Ratio shader to the U parameter?
