Hey everyone! It’s Time Warp Tuesday! Invented in 1915 by Max Fleischer, rotoscoping involved having actors dress up and act out a scene which artists would then trace over frame by frame. It really makes you appreciate the work that went into the production of some of my favourite movies. I feel like this is the reason I enjoy older movies (without CG, think Star Wars Episode 4-6), because you couldn’t freely animate or add in any special effects; it took that much more work.. or at least a different type of work..
Okay, I’m done rambling. Here’s some rotoscope images from Disney. Click here to go to the original article.
I hope everyone had a great day!
