Rotoscoping using Photoshop

 

Rotoscoping is a technique in which animators draw over movie footage, frame by frame.  Using photoshop and the ability to work on a motion workspace with layers is a great way to create a hand-drawn look for animations.

 

Here is a link to a youtube video that walks through the entire process.

Here is our class project:
