Rotoscoping in CS4?
on Apr 23, 2011 at 2:13:10 am

Hi
I have a project in Premiere CS4 that I need to apply a travelling matte to for color grading. In After Effects CS5 there is the new RotoBrush feature...is there any way I can accomplish something similar in AE CS4? (I'm on a 32 bit machine right now)

Local is the new global

Mocha comes with CS4. You can create masks and track them in Mocha- for color correction, depending on how accurate your effect needs to be (or how tight the mask needs to be to put it in a different wording) you may get away with a garbage mask. If a garbage mask is all you need you can just animate that by hand in AE directly and feather the edge to blend the color correction in.

This video shows how to do what you're after using features that have been in After Effects for many versions (basic rotoscoping and motion tracking):
