It has a self-extracting installer doesn't it?. You just add it as a normal plugin.

EDIT:

Just found these instructions of HighEnd3D
:: Usage ::

- Copy IMFPng.dll to the Maya image plugins directory, this is
C:\Program Files\AliasWavefront\Maya5.0\bin\plug-ins\image on most systems

- Copy libpng12.dll and zlib1.dll to a directory situated in your path,
for example C:\Windows\System32 or the Maya bin directory
C:\Program Files\AliasWavefront\Maya5.0\bin

- restart Maya and you're done.

Hey,

Thanks for your help!!

But I don't see any of those files you named, what version is that one you are talking about? The one i'm using is 3.3

When I open up the folder Tomcar Cartoon Shader, I get 2 folder and five files.

AEcartoonRenderGlobalsTemplate.mel

AEcartoonShaderTemplate.mel

CartoonShader.mel

cartoonShader60.mll

unins000.dat

In the folders is:

cartoonShaderPresets folder has:

Black Line - simple.mel

Black Line - threeTones.mel

Calligraphic.mel

DottedLine.mel

Marker - Blue.mel

Marker - Yellow.mel

OilPaint.mel

Sketch.mel

cartoonShaderDocs folder has links to how to use tomcat cartoon shader, with another folder that has images of what the shaders look like.

Anyone use this tomcat shader who has installed it?

Thanks again
