Review: Boris Silhouette Paint by Mark Christiansen

In this Boris Silhouette Paint review by Mark Christiansen, he explains why users would choose painting over other types of tools. He talks about getting started with the software and the pros and cons.

Silhouette Paint is an Adobe and OFX plugin that came out a few months ago. It is built on a non-destructive Auto Paint stroke recording system and delivers unparalleled performance for interactive, pressure-sensitive artistic control. In addition, it works at any resolution.

Silhouette Paint has a few killer features built into it, depending on your usage. One thing you’ll never want to give up once you start to use it is the ability to stabilize an area of the shot in place, work on it, then reverse it.

If you’re not familiar with Mark Christiansen, he’s a distinguished visual effects artist, trainer, and author. In other words, Mark is an authority on the topic of visual effects. Check out his website.Read the full review at Pro Video Coalition
