The book states ” we recommend you look for short clips of live action that contain lots of movement. Consider these rotoscoping playgrounds: sports footage, dancing, action that forms a natural cycle. Common to these suggested sources is a complex physical action that is both eye-catching and really difficult to animate using traditional methods.”
Taking these reccomondations into consideration i feel that i may go down the route of choosing sports footage to rotoscope with as i am an avid football/soccer fan.
The book also provides a useful case study of a Rotoscope project, showing how the rotoscope affect can be added using Photoshop and a simple Paint program. Its beneficial to have access and be able to clearly see how other people have gone about implementing this style of animation.
The main quote that i have took from the book is “ROTOSCOPING CAN YIELD ANIMATION THAT IS BREATHTAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL – AND EVEN QUITE ABSTRACT.” An inspiring quote for the project.
