Technically I don't think it's really rotoscoping though (they call it = auto-rotoscoping). It's more like filtering and posterizing the frames. Rea= l rotoscoping is tracing a real video. It's not for everybody as tracing 3= 0 or even 15 frames per second of video is a huge job. If that's what you = want you'll end up with a more hand- made type of look (after hours and hou= rs of work). If you have Quicktime Pro you can export a movie as an image = sequence. Then import the images into Photoshop or another graphics progra= m and trace, color, or even posterize away. You'll end up with a folder ful= l of images that you can then turn back into a movie with Quicktime Pro. T= here are probably other ways to do this and if anyone knows I'd like to he= ar them. I've used this method to make a shaky sequence steady (you have = to crop the image too), but like I said if you are not the patient type an= y type of frame by frame process is agonizing.
