[request] alternative toon shader

To shader experts...

I have been experimenting with the stock toon shader but I don't like how the outlines scale to make the line width relatively smaller when full screen). I found a great example on github (here) with a live demo as an example of what I'm searching for.

I looked through the stock shader code and it's not apparent to me how I could modify it to remove the drawing of the lines. I also have no idea how to transfer the relevant code from the github repository and create a new c2 effect - can anyone help / offer me some pointers on how to go about this please? Wasn't sure if this should be in this forum or the How do I... Hope it's ok here.

Thanks!

@Colludium

I think the 'toon' effect that comes with C2 works by posterizing the image and adding a black edge.
I altered some of the parameters and managed to remove the lines....but, when the image is resized
the lines re-appeared.
Have you tried using the 'posterize' effect instead with the level's set to about 8 or 10.
You wont see any lines when you resize.

@chrisbrobs - I didn't know that the two shaders were similar in that way... I'll give it a try - thanks for looking in to this :).
