The new Silhouette and Mocha Pro releases from Boris FX offer powerful, innovative features to artists working on VFX-heavy films and streaming/broadcast projects. The Academy and Emmy Award-winning tools are now available as a plugin to popular video software platforms or as a standalone application.
“We understand that visual effects artists, paint/roto artists, and compositors across the globe face increased workloads with shorter turnarounds and higher production values,” says Boris Yamnitsky, founder and CEO of Boris FX. “One of the main goals of Silhouette 2023 and Mocha Pro 2023 is to provide artists with the most efficient workflows possible. We’re thrilled to introduce our first internally-developed ML technology inside Silhouette to aid in that pursuit. Additionally, users of Mocha Pro 2023 will benefit greatly from new tools that slash time spent tracking complicated shots and produce more organic rotoscoping results.”
“Silhouette continues to excel in roto, paint, and tracking – and is raising the bar even higher with the 2023 new features. Expressions can now be used, and with that, the new Motion Blur Controller Expression Action will now control the motion blur parameters for all of my roto nodes in a session. It’s such an efficient way to manage motion blur settings,” states Katie Morris, VFX artist and trainer, KMFX. “With the introduction of the machine learning Denoiser, as well as the Regrain nodes, it has never been easier to manage the grain workflow. It’s effortless and can now be done in one project file. The new Stability AI node is mind-blowing with a user-friendly interface. I can see all the potential ways it may streamline my workflows and let me focus on the creative process. These days, every single shot I work on is touched by Silhouette.”
