Introduction to Rotoscoping in NUKE 5

Released Dec 23, 2009

In this series of lessons we'll learn the basics of Rotoscoping in NUKE. We'll begin this project by learning about the Bezier node. We'll then learn how to easily and quickly control our bezier shape and edge per-point blurring. We'll then jump into the basic workflows of animating masks and how we can keep a consistent shape for a more appealing matte. We'll end by outputting our mask into an image sequence that can be used in other nuke scripts or applications.
