Rotorscoping ,

Rotoscoping , according to Wikipedia, “is an animation technique in which animators trace over live-action film movement, frame by frame, for use in animated films” – which highlights the problem most people have with traditional rotoscope right there – “frame by frame”. What is a length of film or video? A moment captured in time? Nothing of the sort. A moment exists infinitely. Technology might be used to record that moment at 25 frames per second, or a thousand frames per second, but life itself has no frame rate. So a length of film in that sense, is but a sequence or arbitrary, semi-regular instances, captured over a finite time.

this is a wicked rotorscoping video ^

I find it takes forever to animate a video since there is so many frames, but the end product is amazing!
