The major update includes new artist-friendly rotoscoping and paint tools and a complete node-based plugin. Paint and rotoscope artists can now access all of Boris FX Silhouette's Academy and Emmy Award-winning tools as a plugin inside Nuke, After Effects, and other hosts.

Boris FX Silhouette is set to further cement its indelible mark on the world of film and television. The Academy and Emmy Award-winning advanced rotoscoping, non-destructive paint, and compositing toolset is now available as an affordable plugin to the post-production industry's most popular host applications.

Artists who have previously relied on Silhouette as a standalone application on projects including Avengers: Endgame, Game of Thrones, Stranger Things, and The Mandalorian can now access the same powerful tools directly inside Adobe After Effects and Premiere Pro, Foundry Nuke, Blackmagic Fusion and Resolve, Autodesk Flame, and VEGAS Pro.

The new 2021 release follows Silhouette's recent acceptance as a participating product in the prestigious Netflix Production Technology Alliance.

The role of paint and rotoscope artists has become increasingly important as production values soar. Invisible effects work is a major component on every film and TV project - think matte painting, wire removal, digital make up, and more, says Boris Yamnitsky, President and Founder, Boris FX. The ability to use Silhouette as a plugin directly inside host applications like After Effects, Nuke, and Resolve will dramatically change how these artists work. It also further aligns the Boris FX product family (Sapphire, Continuum, Mocha Pro) together and streamlines post-production workflows as artists can easily jump in and out of any Boris FX product without leaving their project timelines. The result? Major time-savings and greater collaboration.

Our goal with Silhouette 2021 was to create next-level editing tools to handle the most difficult roto shots, states Marco Paolini, Silhouette Product Designer. Complex shape animations are easier than ever before with the new gestural brush reshape tool, point grouping, collapsing, and distribution. Many of the new tools and enhancements, too many to mention, are a result of artist feedback from around the world.
