Use your new skills with other software

SilhouetteFX was chosen for this training course because of the great balance of the roto and effects toolsets, but most of the techniques that you learn will be equally valid when working in your compositing software. We aim to equip you with the strategies for tackling shots and not just what button to push for one particular and specific job.
