Rotobrush + Pen Tool: Is this possible?
on May 7, 2012 at 1:43:32 am

I'm relatively new to rotoscoping, and I'm currently working on roto'ing out a person out of a window frame. Of course he is partially obstructed by the window frame at some points, so it's confusing the hell out of the rotobrush. If I could use a straight line on half of the roto to mask the window, and use the brush to roto him, it would make life a lot easier instead of trying to recreate a straight line with the roto brush every frame. I might be asking for a feature that doesn't exist but if it does, or some equivalent way of achieving what I'm trying to do, I would love to know.

Rotobrush isn't perfect so touching the matte up or otherwise using pen tool with it is a good idea.

Instead of painful roto work, why don't you use masks to cut out the windowpanes and insert a new scene behind it?
