News: Boris FX Silhouette Releases 2020 Version Of Two-Time Award-Winning Advanced Rotoscoping, Paint & Compositing Tools
The winner of both an Academy Award for technical achievement and an Engineering Emmy Award adds new magnetic spline tools, a paint detail separation workflow, and free integrated Mocha planar tracking
(Boston, MA--November 13, 2019) Boris FX Silhouette, the singular rotoscoping and paint tool favored by top feature film and visual effects teams, is having a banner year. Silhouette 2020 marks the first major release since winning a Sci-Tech Academy Award (Feb 2019), joining Boris FX’s award-winning product family (Sept 2019), and winning an Engineering Emmy Award (Oct 2019).
Silhouette 2020 builds upon the industry’s most robust rotoscoping, non-destructive paint, tracking, and compositing tools with new customer-requested features, improvements to core functionality, and new VFX workflows for a more streamlined user experience.
“The Silhouette 2020 release brings together years of engineering expertise and powerful partnerships with the film industry’s most decorated VFX studios,” says Boris Yamnitsky, President and Founder, Boris FX. “And pairs it with the forward-thinking development strategy that artists using Boris FX Sapphire, Continuum, and Mocha Pro have come to expect. Silhouette artists will reap the benefits of the combined engineering forces with the addition of Mocha’s Academy Award-winning planar tracker integrated directly into Silhouette 2020 (previously available as a paid upgrade option). We’re also offering a new cost-effective product bundle featuring Silhouette 2020 and the Mocha Pro plugin together which gives artists access to new and improved compositing workflows for screen inserts, lens correction, object removals, and stabilization.”
"Silhouette 2020 is a landmark release as it represents 15 years of continuous development working with the best visual effects artists in the world to craft best-in-class software,” states Marco Paolini, Silhouette Product Manager/Designer. “We are excited to be working with the talented team at Boris FX, whose expertise has brought a number of new exciting features to Silhouette including magnetic splines and point edge-snapping. Here's to another 15 years!"
