Toon-A-Matic also has a "Caricature" setting to produce organic distortions to exaggerate or minimize features. The effect works best on HD material.
Although Toon-A-Matic uses only a few simple controls (Brightness, Line Level, Line Brightness, Line Contrast, Line Saturation, and Caricature Level), a wide range of "toonish" looks are possible.
