Rotoscoping is an animation technique in which animators trace over footage, frame by frame, for use in live-action and animated films.[1][2] Originally, recorded live-action film images were projected onto a frosted glass panel and re-drawn by an animator. This projection equipment is called a rotoscope. Although this device was eventually replaced by computers, the process is still referred to as rotoscoping.


 

 

 

 

 

 

Project Goal:
Use Giflr to create a short photographic gif, then import that gif into Piskel to rotoscope a short clip taking the captured motion and applying it an animated character of your own design. Stay out of the Uncanny Valley!
