Silhouette FX™ Introduces Shake® Render Engine for Roto and Paint

Share Article

Silhouette, the hardcore paint and roto system that's powering today's biggest films can now run as a plug-in to Apple(R) Shake. Powerful motion-stabilized raster-paint and (what is regarded by many as) the best roto interface available today are now a click away for Shake professionals.

Silhouette FX, LLC is pleased to announce the release of the Silhouette Shake Render Engine, a plug-in that renders Silhouette Roto and Silhouette Paint projects inside Apple's Shake compositor. If a stand-alone Silhouette Roto or Silhouette Paint license is available on the same machine, it can be launched with a single click directly from the Shake user interface.

If a stand-alone Silhouette Roto or Silhouette Paint license is not available on the machine running Shake, the Silhouette Shake Render Engine can render Silhouette projects created elsewhere.

Silhouette Roto has already been widely adopted by high-end post facilities using Shake. The introduction of the Silhouette Shake Render Engine makes the integration of Silhouette into the Shake workflow a seamless package.

Silhouette Roto is designed to meet the most demanding rotoscoping challenges. A lean mean rotoscoping machine, Silhouette Roto has proved itself around the world on many of today's most intense effects pictures. Silhouette Paint is a high dynamic range raster-paint system built upon Silhouette Roto's advanced shape handling and motion tracking and stabilization. Together they make an incredibly productive paint-roto one-two punch that makes the most of your time and money.

The Silhouette Shake Render Engine costs $295 (USD) and is available for Mac OS(R) and Linux(R) systems. Bundle pricing that includes the Silhouette Shake Render Engine and Silhouette Roto (and optionally Silhouette Paint) is available.
