WHAT IS ROTOSCOPING?
Digital rotoscopingis the process of creating a mask or matte to isolate part of an image or video so you can change it or add it to a different background and is a very important part of the visual effects process.
In this After Effects tutorial, I’ll cover how to use the Roto Brush tool to quickly and effectively rotoscope nearly anything in After Effects. The Roto Brush makes the rather tedious task of manual rotoscoping and makes it pretty easy. Most of the time this tool does a pretty good job and here I’ll attempt to tackle a pretty complex head of hair to place text “behind” the subject in this video and the rotoscoped video with mask out the subject and place her above the text. Hope you enjoy the tutorial and thanks for watching!
TO DO: Create a video like the one below utilizing the rotoscope technique demonstrated in the tutorial.
Put your name in the background instead of the words, ‘rotoscope’.
FILES YOU WILL NEED: ASK Mr. White for the Performance video. He will Airdrop it to you.
