Adobe Flash - How to Create Rotoscope Animation

by Matt Fussell

The following art lesson video shows you how to create a rotoscope animation in Adobe Flash CS4.  You will need to have two programs - Adobe Flash and Adobe Media Encoder - to complete a rotoscope animation. 

Rotoscope animation is created by taking film and basically drawing over the top of it.  It has been used in several movies, videos, and commercials. Rotoscoping creates a natural movement to the animation and can create very realistic effects.  It is actually not hard to create a rotoscope animation.  It is, however, time consuming.
