Top Boris FX tools are now included in Silhouette.
Sapphire: Award-winning plugins with 270+ effect nodes and thousands of presets. Featuring the best lighting effects, lens flares, and creative image processing filters for VFX.
Mocha Pro: Now included! Featuring PowerMesh, Remove and Stabilize. New data ports and node actions connect the Mocha node to native nodes.
Particle Illusion: Create realistic particle simulations with 3D emitters, fluid dynamics, and a massive preset library. Add useful environmental elements such as snow, smoke, and fire — all within Silhouette.
More Filters: Select Continuum nodes with fast GPU processing. Including Magic Sharp, Beauty Studio, Light Leaks, Video Glitch, Film Glow, and new blur filters.
New nodes add control and flexibility on advanced clean up shots.
InPaint: Apply the InPaint node to remove unwanted pixels using auto-generated textures from surrounding image data. Effective for removal of unwanted objects such as markers, blemishes, or wire removal when using open splines!
PowerMeshWarp: Using new data ports, connect the Mocha Pro node to this node for efficient “reverse warp stabilized” painting or rotoscoping. Useful for beauty work and painting on skin and fabric surfaces.
New Surface tool and DOD update with cropped tracking for precision and speed. Watch Video
Data Port update enables the Mocha Pro node to pass tracking and spline data within Silhouette’s node graph to paint and roto for improved workflows.
Point Control Parameter Tracking. Drive lens flares, particles and more by channeling data into any node via tracking data ports and new transform property pop-up menu.
Node Actions: Create Mocha generated nodes without launching the UI. Save time with Copy Data, Create Roto Node, Create Tracker Node actions. Watch Video.
More tracking exports: Silhouette adds more tracking and roto export formats with the Mocha Pro node with more support for Nuke, Fusion, Flame, FBX, and Alembic.
Silhouette 2022 includes under the hood enhancements that improve general workflows for professional post-production and VFX studios.
Apple M1 support delivers speed boosts on newest Mac hardware.
Improved OCIO v2 color management features GPU rendering and improved ACES support on color managed projects.
Silhouette is the world’s most refined rotoscoping tool. Create sophisticated masks using B-Spline, Bézier, X-Spline, or Magnetic Freehand shapes. Easy-to-use tools such as variable per-point edge softening and magnetic reshaping assist in creating articulate animations in record time. Render mattes with realistic motion blur or export to industry-standard shape formats.
Advanced roto tools include:
Silhouette’s 32-bit float raster-based paint and tracking system meets the demands of high-resolution, color-managed VFX pipelines. A unique AutoPaint recording system delivers the speed of raster paint with the repeatability of vector paint on tasks like matte painting, beauty work, rig removal, or just plain paint.
Silhouette's core is a powerful node-based effects tree that delivers film-grade results. View and edit any combination of nodes for complex compositing, matte manipulation, keying, color correction, grain management, look development, morphing, warping, and much more.
Silhouette 2022 includes 400+ specialty nodes organized into Color, Composite, Diffusion, Filter, Film Lab, Image, Key, Light, Sapphire, Silhouette, Special Effects, Time, Tints, Transform, Warp, and OFX groups.
Now including the Mocha Pro node! The fully-featured Silhouette interface for roto, paint, and compositing can also be launched as a plugin from standard VFX applications: After Effects, Premiere Pro, Nuke, Fusion, Resolve, Flame, and VEGAS Pro.
The Silhouette multi-host plugin is included with all Silhouette standalone application licenses or can be purchased as a separate option.
Silhouette’s fully-featured shape based warp and morph tools provide the highest level of creative control and render quality for digital retouching, image deformations, and even talking animals. Create invisible touch-ups, subtle facial exaggerations, or dramatic transitions with either shape or pin options.
With a rich history on some of the world’s most famous music videos and effects shots, unique “shape-to-shape morphing transitions” can be timed per layer with interactive previews for fast flexibility. Intro to Morphing Video
Pin Warp is perfect for beauty work, allowing user-defined image areas using pins while leaving other areas untouched. Adjustments can range from subtle nip and tucks to something more obvious like repositioning an arm or leg. Watch Now
The powerful zMatte and Power Matte nodes use proprietary matte extraction techniques that handle the most difficult keying and matting challenges, including shots with fine hair detail, smoke, or reflections.
zMatte keying features multiple matte creation, light wrapping, edge correction, spill suppression, and matte manipulation. Watch Now
Power Matte’s unique interactive workflow enhances the matte creation process on normally non-keyable shots with foreground and background shape selectors that generate incredibly realistic and accurate results on semi-transparent objects. Watch Now
The industry’s most powerful tracking drives Silhouette’s animation system and can be applied to speed up paint, roto, warp, and stabilization tasks. Choose from point tracking, native planar tracker, or the award-winning Mocha Pro node, now included in Silhouette 2022.
New surface tool, data ports, and node actions bring a seamless workflow between Mocha and Silhouette nodes.
Pre-processing filters can increase tracker accuracy for problematic images. Choose Blur, Sharpen, Contrast, Gamma, De-Noise, or Remove Flicker. Post-processing filters can be applied to tracking data including Average, Smooth, and Merge
Combine new plugins for compositing and effects.
Award-winning Mocha Pro planar tracking is now a node included with Silhouette.
