Important Silhouette Product Info Regarding Older Versions

Silhouette Legacy Licenses

Boris FX is currently preparing for a major release of Silhouette. If you currently own a Silhouette license, there is some important information about legacy support and upgrades. We’d suggest updating older versions of the software before March 31, 2021. Below, the information from Boris FX.

Silhouette Legacy Upgrades

On March 31, 2021, Silhouette upgrade pricing will only apply to the last 2 major release versions. This means that once the upcoming Silhouette 2021 (v9) is released, only Silhouette v7 or newer versions will qualify for upgrades.

Moving forward, legacy owners running Silhouette v6 and older versions who choose not to upgrade their software licenses by March 31 can purchase new licenses at full price or choose affordably-priced subscription options.

Silhouette Legacy Support

Although Silhouette v6 and older versions will be considered “end of life,” please know that your license will continue to function as usual— as long as the hardware to which it is licensed is operational and you are running a qualified operating system. Any manual transfers, replacements, or support inquiries will require a current upgrade and support contract.

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

Silhouette v6 (Nov 2016)

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

Silhouette v7 (Jun 2018)

Sequence Editing, Planar Tracker enhanced to track textureless objects, Magnetic Reshape, Pin Warp, high-resolution paint optimization, GPU accelerated Mocha planar tracking option.

Silhouette v2020 (Nov 2019)

Paint > Detail Separation, Magnetic Freehand shapes, shape edge-snapping, Planar Tracker > Group and Part Tracking. Mocha tracking option now included at no additional charge. Support for OFX plugins: Mocha Pro, Sapphire, Neat Video, and RE:Vision Effects products.

Upgrading to the current version of Silhouette entitles you to 1 year of free upgrades and support. With each release, the Boris FX Silhouette team continues to innovate and produce market-leading rotoscoping, paint, and VFX solutions.
