PSOFT Pencil+ 4 Render App

The "PSOFT Pencil+ 4 Render App" is a standalone application which receives data necessary for Line drawing from an external application and passes back Line drawing results. When the application is started, it starts waiting to receive external data. When external data is received, it performs Line drawing and returns the Line image to the external application.

The PSOFT Pencil+ 4 Line for Blender add-on works by coordinating with the Render App. The application is started automatically depending on the use of Blender.

It is not possible to start multiple instances of the Render App. A single instance can provide drawing capability to multiple Blender instances.

Please refer to the separate Pencil+ 4 Render App manual for details about the PSOFT Pencil+ 4 Render App.
