Rotoscoping is simple in theory, but difficult in practice. Due to the frame-by-frame nature of the process, it’s easy to end up with “chattering” mattes whose jiggly edges destroy the effect. So how do you achieve consistency?
Whether you’re an animator, motion graphic designer, VFX artist, or videographer, you’ll probably need to rotoscope at least one shot in your career. In this post, we’ve gathered the resources you’ll need to get started with three of the most popular rotoscoping methods in Adobe After Effects: masks, the Rotobrush, and Mocha.
