Flair breakdown

Flair is a real-time stylized rendering engine for Autodesk Maya which consists of three core elements

  • The styles stylize images using shader pipelines.

  • The materials render the 3D shading information and AOVs of objects.

  • The art-direction tools control the different effects available for each style.

The combination of these core elements make Flair a unique framework to produce stylized art-directed 3D graphics. This is complemented by the real-time performance making creative choices immediate, allowing you to iterate faster towards your final vision.

Each core element is thoroughly documented here, together with the setup and activation of Flair, the rendering tools and other miscellaneous functions found in the Flair toolbox.

Finally, while Flair is production-proven and continuously improved, we have made sure to also document its limitations compared to other offline (non-realtime) renderers.
