What Rotoscoping Tool to use?
on Mar 12, 2006 at 8:12:43 pm

Hi,

I am looking for a simple, cheap rotoscoping tool, can someone recommend one? Something like Strata Media Paint (which is extinct and does not work under Win2K). I tried to use Photoshop 7 and the filmstrip format but this just isn't very good, there have got to be better tools out there. ImageReady 7 was horrendous, it put every frame in a new layer! Couldn't figure that one out.

Thanks

What sort of roto work? Wire removal? Masking? Paint effects?

Have you tried breaking the video into an image sequence and editing in PS, then reassembling back into a video clip?

Have you looked into FilmGIMP?

Hi Jim,

>What sort of roto work? Wire removal? Masking? Paint effects?

Paint effects. I want to draw on and over the frames. Make things appear and disappear. And also to do quick and dirty effects to show others the effect I'm looking for. (like a storyboard)

>Have you tried breaking the video into an image sequence and editing in PS, then reassembling back into a video clip?

Filmstrip, yes. VERY cumbersome! That is my current method, I was hoping to find something better. Strata Media Paint was great.

>Have you looked into FilmGIMP?

It says the OS is POSIX or Linux, I'm running Win2K so I assume it won't work.

Rick
