Free Three-Months Boris FX Suite Offer for Wacom Customers: a glimpse into Boris FX

September 1, 2021

One of the great advantages that I have found after buying Wacom tablets is that they come with a lot of free trials of many of the programs that I’ve wanted to test out. In fact, whether they are programs for painting, designing or learning, it has always been really useful to try them before making any final decision. More recently, Wacom has added a free 3-month subscription to Boris FX Suite when purchasing Wacom Cintiq ProWacom Intuos Pro or Wacom MobileStudio Pro. The offer will give you access to five world-leading visual effects tools, which is perfect for those who are curious about the world of video and photo post-production.  


Since 1995, Boris FX has dominated the market when it comes to visual effects software and plugins for film and photography. The company represents a well established pillar in the film industry, and their impressive portfolio includes countless Hollywood movie productions, such as Star Wars, Avatar, Game of Thrones, the Harry Potter series and many more. Boris FX Suite gives users access to a complete library of Boris FX plugins, including Optics, Sapphire, Continuum, Mocha Pro, and Silhouette. These award-winning creative tools, which support every main video editing and effects application, are ideal for editors, colorists, VFX artists, designers, and animators. 

I registered my new Wacom Intuos Pro and received a confirmation e-mail with more information on how to redeem the complimentary trials. When I then accessed my account I could easily choose my preferred application and redeem the trial using a unique registration code, which was sent to me once I completed all the steps. Finally, I could pick which products to download from the Boris FX Suite.  

Sapphire: Award-winning VFX plugins 

Used by all kinds of artists and professionals, Sapphire plugins allow you to create the most amazing looks and light effects. Featuring an extensive collection of over 270 effects as well as 3000 preset effects, there’s something for everyone, with new presets being released all the time. Designed to optimize workflow, with an easy to use layout and with numerous tutorials to guide your experience, Sapphire supports creatives as they edit their photos and videos into breathtaking pieces of art.  

Continuum: The Swiss Army Knife of plugins 

Continuum, also known as “the swiss army knife of plugins”, is considered the most complete VFX tool, with functions that cover all the essentials, from image restoration to chroma keying and compositing. Editors and artists have been relying on Continuum for years, and it’s no surprise why. Image restoration tools enable you to repair any film material with ease, while the best tools for colour correction give you the chance to build your signature film and photography look. 

Mocha Pro: Academy Award-winning planar tracking 

Award-winning software Mocha Pro continues to lead the world as a planar tracking tool for VFX and post-production. Essential to many professionals, the software is also used for rotoscoping and object removal, meaning it can be used to clear or alter elements in scenes, making workflows easier and more efficient. Mocha Pro’s ability to lock and track objects with accuracy, including warped surfaces, has earned it Academy and Emmy Awards for its contribution to film and television. 

Silhouette: Academy Award-winning paint, roto and compositing 

Silhouette is an industry acclaimed application for compositing, rotoscoping and non-destructive paint, featured in some of Hollywood’s biggest titles, such as Avatar and Avengers: End Game. With some of the world’s most refined tools, It’s designed to simplify and accelerate workflow. It even includes notes that can be displayed in the viewer, allowing for easy review and approval from supervisors. The node-based software gives you incredible flexibility when working and will allow you to create complex compositing, keying, grain management, look development and more. 

Optics: Visual effects for photographers 

Optics is the perfect way to take your images to the next level. Designed with photographers in mind, it is available as a plugin for Photoshop and Lightroom, as well as a stand alone application, and it is great for simulating optical camera filters, natural light, specialized lenses, film stock and more. You can flick through hundreds of filters and presets, each with adjustable parameters, giving your images unique and impressive stylization with just a few easy clicks.  

The Boris FX Suite is perfectly complimented by my Wacom tablet, as the responsive pen makes working with these award-winning tools and plugins easy and efficient. Indeed, editing with these tools is completely simplified when using brushes and the pen tool. Likewise, using Wacom will give you the chance to make your workflow a lot faster by customizing the express keys and always keeping your favourite tools handy. For the type of work that often involves a lot of steps, Wacom is perfect at providing a naturally effortless feel. 

So, if you’ve purchased a new Wacom Cintiq Pro, Intuos Pro or Mobile Studio Pro, make sure you check out the Boris FX Suite promotion for a 3-month free trial. Not only will you save a lot of money on what was once an expensive process, but you will be able to experiment with a world renowned effects suite before deciding if it’s the right fit for you.
