The professional rotoscoping and painting solution Silhouette, which was acquired by Boris FX two years ago and became part of the Netflix Production Technology Alliance in February, is undergoing a fairly comprehensive update. For example, all functionality is now available when Silhouette is used as a plugin -- previously, only pure paint functions were available here. I.e. the entire node-based workflow for Roto, Paint, Tracking, Warping, Keying and Compositing can be found within the host program. Adobe After Effects and Adobe Premiere Pro, Foundry Nuke, Blackmagic Resolve / Fusion, Autodesk Flame and VEGAS Pro are supported.
A new Lens Correction Node based on Mocha Pro&s Lens Module can calibrate and correct lens distortions, or generate and export an ST Map for other host applications.
Also, new Roto editing tools have been added, which provide advanced capabilities for selecting and manipulating points and shapes (Brush Reshape, Point Collapse and Distribute, Point Groups, Split Shapes). New Fade In/Fade Out parameters allow you to set how strong or fast keyframe-controlled changes should take effect (Weighted MultiFrame).
In the Paint section, the Clone Source Masking function is new and the Color Picker has been improved. Some nodes have been optimized (Alpha Composite, Dot, Notes, OCIO Colorspace/Display/LUT) as well as some parts of the user interface (e.g. Custom File Importer, Flyout Menus, Node Coloring, Node Alignment, OCIO Roles, Sapphire Node Tab).
Notes assigned to objects (shapes, layers, trackers) during a roto review or acceptance can now be displayed in the viewer, making it easier to take note of them.
An annual subscription to the Silhouette plugin costs per year; Silhouette as a standalone version including the plugin option costs per year. The software is available for macOS, Windows and Linux.
