Creating a cartoon effect

A plethora of command-line scripts that perform geometric transforms, blurs, sharpens, edging, noise removal, and color manipulations.

So, you want to capture, process and display video? Ffmpeg or Avisynth would seem more logical choices for tools.

Yeah, I guess that would be reasonable, but I do not know how to apply these effects on ffmpeg or avisynth and I know a little imagemagick so I used the tool I know.
can you maybe recommend some articles on how to accomplish smthing like this on ffmpeg or avisynth?

Sorry, I don't know of any good "how-to" pages for ffmpeg. In particular, the filters and how they can interact, with examples.

At one time, I considered writing a series of "snibgo's ffmpeg pages", but never got around to it.

Most of my video work uses IM, but it doesn't process in real-time.

The living room and the cats look awesome, but faces are really distorted.

Sorry, nothing can be done about that. It is the detail in your face that is brought out by the cartoon script. After all, it is a "cartoon" and things are expected to look unreal. You can smooth more, but you did not like that one either.

@Leekao: You might be interested in my "Cartoon and texture" page, though the methods take more time.

One cartoon result, with no added lines, is:
