Layer system!

Mangaka! 4 features a powerful layer system, based on Cryptomatte technology, that gives you complete control over the manga-style look of your illustrations. This layer system allows you to make adjustments on a "per asset" basis, giving you the flexibility to create the exact look you want for each element of your illustration.

With the layer system, you can make specific adjustments to the manga-style settings for each individual asset in your scene, such as changing the line width, color, and more. This allows you to create a cohesive and polished final product, with each element of your illustration perfectly tailored to your desired manga-style.

And tons of other features!

1.3: Last update in a while

Last month I dedicated a lot of time creating, updating and solving problems with the add-on. Now it is in a state where I feel like I can give it a rest, so I can focus on other projects. I loved this process and I will definitively come back and make this add-on even better. But for now, it's pretty good. Of course, if a bug shows up contact me and I will solve it.
also updated the price taking into consideration the amount of time I devoted to this

*added Icons to Buttons
