Selection Matte for Ghost FX
on Oct 3, 2010 at 2:34:55 pm

I am working on a project where I need to create a ghostly effect. I have CS5 and used Rotoscoping to slect the actors and add the effect.
However, sometimes the selection process is amazing! it doesn't need to be to the edge perfect but the rotoscope mask sometimes juts out or wiggles a lot which looks weird.
I was wondering if anyone could make some suggestions for how to fix this? Whether it be settings or tips for using rotoscope? or a whole new selection method.

I really need to get this working and I've attempted to go through frame by frame and fix the rtoscope too many times... thanks!

I'll say the same thing on this thread that I did on the other thread where you asked this question:

Here's a page dedicated to that purpose, with links to many tutorials, sample chapters, and other resources. If you patiently work your way through these resources, you'll be in good shape. Rotoscoping is an involved set of techniques and skills, so don't expect to get it right the first time. It takes learning and practice.
