FX Guide Review Excerpt

Fxguide test drove the Plugin inside the Foundry’s Nuke. Nuke’s own built-in paint/roto node is vector-based, so it can get slow after a few thousand brush strokes. But Silhouette is raster-based. As such it doesn’t slow down even after thousands of brush strokes. The Silhouette Paint plugin is, however, a lite version of the standalone Silhouette tool, so it is missing quite a few useful features, but it has the advantage of being inside your application, so your results are returned immediately to the timeline.
