The Watercolor style emulates the traditional watercolor animation aesthetic, without the usual flickering associated with when showing multiple watercolor paintings in sequence. Based on the award-winning research of Montesdeoca et al. and Bousseau et al., we are continuously improving upon it with new effects and controls.
To refine and customize the watercolor style, a series of global watercolor attributes are provided within the style configuration node.
The concentration of pigments, giving the render either a diluted or a more saturated and darker look.
The accumulation of pigments on the valleys of the paper (canvas). Concentrates the pigments on the valleys and creates a more saturated and darker look.
Strength of the edge darkening effect. A higher intensity will concentrate more color on the edges.
Width for the edge darkening effect. Note: A wider edge darkening will require an increase in intensity, as well.
Maximum width for the bleeding effect. Pushing this too far might affect performance.
Sharpness of the drybrush application.
Color of the drybrush application.
Maximum width of the gaps & overlaps effect.
