Toolbox Studio – An Inside Look Into Our Rotoscopy Offering




Rotoscopy is one of the VFX service subsets that Toolbox Studio specialises in.

Rotoscopy is a process wherein the artist traces over the footage of live action movements, frame by frame, in order to recreate realistic movements. These frames can later be merged with any background. The skill and effort involved in rotoscopy, despite all the available technology and software, is very intricate and requires artists who are professionally trained and highly skilled.

We, at Toolbox Studio, take pride in our ability to make our rotoscopy services more cost effective for our clients.

Here’s a behind-the-scenes look into our offering:

Our Team

At Toolbox Studio, we have a rotoscopy team of 30 highly skilled and professionally trained roto and paint artists who work in 2 shifts. This makes it possible for us to be able to deliver high quality work within a tight deadline. Our team can easily be adapted into 3 shifts whenever required.

The team’s core expertise lies in the following rotoscopy software packages:

  • Silhouette
  • Mocha
  • Nuke

To give you an idea of the skill and expertise of our rotoscopy capabilities, here is a quick snapshot of some popular movies that we have worked on:300



Our Workflow

We are dedicated to giving you the best possible quality and we keep working on our projects until our clients are completely satisfied with the outcome.

Take a look at this flowchart to gain a little insight into how our team works.

As you can see from the chart, we have a well-oiled system that assures topnotch quality and timely deliveries every time. Because we understand that as a video production company, meeting deadlines is always the first priority for us.


What We Offer

Every client outsources their work based on 4 main elements:

  1. Quality
  2. Adaptability
  3. Pricing
  4. Turnaround time

Based on these elements, we have broken down our services into three categories in relation to complexity: high, medium and low.

Low Complexitylow-complexity

Low complexity projects involve minimal movement and few bodies with less intricate tracing. Because these projects are relatively easier we can deliver between 100 and 110 frames per week, per artist.

Medium Complexity


Medium complexity projects have more bodies and more moving parts as compared to low complexity projects. We can deliver 55-65 frames per week, per artist.

High Complexity


High complexity projects involve a lot of bodies, many moving parts and very intricate and complicated tracing on the part of the artist. Because these projects require great attention to detail and very fine handwork, we can deliver between 25 and 35 frames per week, per artist.

Our Promise

As mentioned earlier, we pride ourselves in being able to provide competitive pricing. We sit with our clients and based on the complexity of the project, we always manage to work out an average cost per frame.

In a motion picture or video production process, providing top quality and meeting deadlines are always the highest priorities. At Toolbox Studio, we do not just want to meet the expectations of our clients but strive to exceed them every single time.
