rotoscoped dancers, which app is best?
on Oct 14, 2008 at 3:03:34 am

I would like to make animated silhouettes of dancers,
such as you might remember from the old whited-out
ipod ads. (without hiring people and green-screening)

What's the best place to start? Is Poser sufficient to
create dancing figures? Do I need Maya?

Any suggs?

Thanks loads

can you pls cc any thread replies to fractal@maui.net???

I would definitely do it in Post. That is if you have the actors already! So you roto the mask out

After Effects
Fusion
Shake

...otherwise you will need to generate those actors so yeah Poser would work, 3D Max, Cinema4D, Lightwave, XSI, or Maya. Any 3D app that will allow you to import FBX, BVH, BIP, or c3d data for example.

Some free MoCap data + some purchase cycles:

I'm no pro so I hope you get your solution!

Cheerio
Nick.
