Is it possible for blender to just use colors to determine how a scene looks? I want no shadows, just the colors, like in after effects but 3D.

I´m trying to replicate the following:

Basically, toon shaders for all the gears. Some depth of field and the most important camera setting: Orthographic. Then my sun casts no shadows. Add vignette in Compositing and that's pretty much it.

  • $\begingroup$ Very late, but I tried this to see if this worked better than my fix, but setting camera to orthographic messes up my camera movement completly, so it isn´t much use $\endgroup$ Feb 19 at 21:50
  • $\begingroup$ Well, ortho was just to make sure you don't use perspective. You'd need your gears to have nearly zero thickness to makem them appear 2D. $\endgroup$
