      HJB,

      Check out this tutorial at Creative Cow.net. Rotoscoping is a great way to superimpose 2D animation over live footage to get more lifelike movement in your characters. There are a number of other creative things you can do with it, but that’s the main thing popping to mind.

      Rotoscoping can also be useful when you need to apply different effect to the foreground, midground, or background of a shot. For example you need to apply color correction to a figure in a scene but not to eh rest of the content of the scene.

      I rotoscope a lot of color correction. Often the background is fine but I want to treat my principal character. Perhaps he has a zit or a booger on his cheeck? Yesterday I was editing a music video for a prominant artist and nobody on set noticed a piece of glitter on her face… or elected to ignore it and make it my problem. Every day I find a use to rotoscope something.
