  Outputting the outlines of a scene (Message 1 to 3 of 3)

I want to create an imagemap with hotspots based on the following 
POV-Ray scene:

https://mjhorvath.github.io/Datsville/docs/high-resolution-render/high-resolution-render.html

I was wondering if there were maybe some way of automating the process, 
by outputting the outlines of the objects that I can later vectorize in 
Illustrator or Inkscape?

I know someone made a vector outline tool for Blender, but I'm not sure 
how it works, or if it works _well_ at all.

Any ideas? Thanks so much!


Michael

Hi, Blender's Freestyle is a an edge rendering engine. It can directly render
these edges to an SVG file,but it's by default a hidden option that gets
revealed if you check all freesstyle related checkboxes in the addons tab of
Blenders preference window.

I saw a video demoing this. Do you know how it is implemented internally 
in Blender?

Depth map differences?
