Operating System: Mac OS X
There are four sections to the plugin: Style, Color, Effect, and Inking. Style affects the texture/brush strokes of the painting look.
Color is for color correction. Effect lets you mix back the unaffected material, and Inking adds lines that can be used to add detail edging (like cartoons), but at the lower default settings, they add a subtle crispness and shading to the image.
With the number of sliders and buttons, Painter can seem pretty complicated to use, however, various presets are available to make it easier to get a look that you're interested in. The presets include Clean Sharp, Bold Thick, Dark Moody, Bizarro I and Bizarro II, but also a Standard DEF setting.
The filter can be found under the Effects/Video Filters/Sheffield Softworks/ menu.
