Rotoscopy is a technique where the artist traces over a footage, frame by frame, to replicate realistic movements. This technique is helpful in many ways, but it is of utmost importance when creating a film VFX. What does a rotoscopy animation artist do exactly? He very literally traces over a live action video. In this process, the artist creates traces from the video that keeps its consistency and volume, allowing the artist to present a more realistic final output. This technique since it has been adapted to the visual industry using software, has made it possible to create these intricate traces in a shorter frame of time than before. These frames can then be composited over any background.
