I'm currently writing my dissertation about the creative aspects of using Rotoscoping in After Effects CC. Therefore I want to create contours on the edge of an moving Object.I tried Masks and also the Roto-Brush-Tool. I'd say the main differences between those two in AE is that Masks are "Paths/Masks" and the Roto-Brush is an "Effect".
So for the mask it's possible to apply a contour but not for the Roto-Brush-Path am I right?
But that is basically what I would like to do as this tool works better for me.
So I have a few questions to maybe be able to create contours for Roto-Brush:
- Is it possible to add a contour to the Roto-Brush?
- Is it possible to create a mask out of a Roto-Brush-Path?
- Is it possible to import a Roto-Brush-Path into Photoshop? As you can convert the Quickselectiontool in Photoshop to a mask and apply a contour, so that's my idea behind it.
Thank you for your help,
No, no and no. Rotobrush doesn't work with mask/ shape paths to begin with. This feature has been much requested, though, but so far not added.
