I am looking for tutorial to make toon shading and outline in UE5.
Currently I found several methods, like postprocessing or emissive material (unlit) for the actor.
But all of them have their own cons.
So I am asking do you know any method which you think is the best toon shader in UE?
PS. this may be a side question. Why UE doesn’t have default toon shader? There are many games using UE also use toon shading, like Guilty Gear, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot , Tales of Arise, Sifu, Scarlet Nexus, etc. So I also wonder how they achieve their toon shading works
Hey there @unreal_toon_learner! Welcome to the community! So I’ll drop you a couple of personal favorites. I personally recommend the material based ones instead of mixing in post processing, because it’s more viable for multiple platforms and (usually) less expensive.

The engine team has a pretty strong focus on the tech side of things usually, getting extra content in usually comes in as templates. Otherwise many users never end up using or seeing them. I thought one of the old content examples had a cel shaded material, but I could be wrong on that.
