Reconsidering Rotoscoped Animation for its Second Century

quote [ I was reading a book at a coffee shop once, years ago – maybe an old edition of John Krasner’s Motion Graphic Design and Fine Art Animation? – that compared attempting hand-rotoscoping a feature film to serving a prison sentence. Having now served seven years at just that (ten if you count the short films), doing hard time shackled to a Wacom tablet, I think that is a pretty fair assessment of the kind of man-hours involved ]

Good article discussing the second wave of rotoscoping for the late 70s fantasy wave (pictured above) to current instances.

It also says so in the article somewhere, that you can use this assisted stuff. There used to be line-based morph tools for Flash and SVGs for similar transition help. Can't remember them though.

Very metal.

Rotoscoping is something that you can now do with machine learning/AI. Still needs the human eye, though

I made a very brief animation using rotoscoping.
It took me a day and a half, I have no regrets.
