Blender 2.67 is out, and one of its main features is the long-awaited Freestyle integration.

I'd like to try out Freestyle, but it doesn't appear in the "Render Engine" dropdown. I assume some assembly is required. What will I need to start using Freestyle on Windows and Linux?

You're right, it doesn't appear in the render engine dropdown.

In version 2.66 it is in Render tab > Post Processing > Freestyle.

Thanks to RagnarSun, in 2.67 (and 2.67a) it is in Render > Freestyle.

  • $\begingroup$ I'm in 2.66.1, and Freestyle isn't appearing anywhere in the Post Processing section. Did it move, or is there another reason it isn't appearing in the version found in Ubuntu's repositories? $\endgroup$

I did a tutorial on this recently: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J3LI_MTnY7U First five minutes answer your questions(but there are many more details on the engine later on).

When your in the Blender Internal render engine go the render panel and at the bottom check Freestyle. Then go to your render layers tab. Add a new line set and your good to go.
