I don't know much about blender at all but I want to make 3d animations but wanting it to look 2d. 3d animations that try to look 2d are clearly 3d and I know it can be done with npr and freestyle but I don't know where to start. How do I make a 2d toon animations on blender? Something that can load in blender quickly. I'm assumeing that there's a way to make animation quickly with blender by using some trick of turning the 3d to 2d.
The reason I'm asking is cause rendering takes way to long and wondering if a sort of "2d" render would help. Even if itshe just line art if it renders faster. Takes a minute to render a image of toon style Suzanne.
I don't have special sharers or nodes. I don't even know how to use nodes yet, but is it even possible to make quick animations? Sorry for my hard question I been looking for the answer for weeks now.
