Silhouette Legacy Licenses

Boris FX is currently preparing for a major version of Silhouette. If you currently have a Silhouette license, there are some important pieces of information about legacy support and upgrades. We recommend updating older versions of the software before March 31, 2021. Below is the information from Boris FX.

Silhouette Legacy Upgrades

On March 31, 2021, Silhouette upgrade prices will only apply to the last two major releases. This means that after the upcoming Silhouette 2021 (v9) is released, only Silhouette v7 or newer versions will be eligible for upgrades.

In the future, older owners of Silhouette v6 and older who do not want to update their software licenses by March 31st can purchase new licenses at full price or choose subscription options at affordable prices.

Silhouette Legacy Support

Although Silhouette v6 and older are considered "End of Life", please know that your license will continue to function as usual – as long as the hardware for which it is licensed is operational and you are running a qualified operating system. A current upgrade and support contract is required for manual transfers, replacements or support requests.

For your reference, here are some of the key feature highlights by version and release date.

Silhouette v6 (November 2016)

Node-based GPU-accelerated compositor with a total of 136 different nodes – all stereo enabled.

Silhouette v7 (June 2018)

Sequence Editing, Planar Tracker Enhanced to Track Textureless Objects, Magnetic Reshaping, Pin Warp, High Resolution Color Optimization, GPU Accelerated Mocha Planar Tracking Option.

Silhouette v2020 (November 2019)

Painting> Detail Separation, Magnetic Freehand Shapes, Molded Edge Snapping, Planar Tracker> Group and Part Tracking. Mocha tracking option now included at no extra charge. Support for OFX plugins: Mocha Pro, Sapphire, Neat Video and RE: Vision Effects products.

An upgrade to the current version of Silhouette entitles you to 1 year of free upgrade and support. With each release, the Boris FX Silhouette team continues to innovate, producing market-leading rotoscopic, varnish and VFX solutions.
