Top artists at the world’s most famous VFX studios — Weta Digital, Framestore, Technicolor, Deluxe, and many more — use Silhouette to help create epic visual effects on the biggest blockbusters including Avatar, The Hobbit, Wonder Woman, Avengers: End Game, and Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.

Featuring over 100 filters and thousands of presets including color grading presets inspired by Academy Award-winning films like 2001: A Space Odyssey, Apocalypse Now, Blade Runner, Back to the Future, and Gone with the Wind.
