    Alternatives to rotoscoping for creating a silhouette (no green screen)

    gomerpyle3333 Level 1

      I'm working with live rock concert footage to make a silhouette of the performer against a blue, glowing background.  The problem is that rotoscope masking is so tedious and imprecise, and there's no green screen so I have to manually scrub through the whole thing and remove the performer's figure from the footage. The idea is to abstract the figure and make him appear like a shadow against the background, but masking it with rotoscope just looks horrible and is too much work. Are there better alternatives for creating the look I'm after? I'll attach a screenie here of what I'm doing so far.Screen Shot 2017-06-01 at 10.36.11 PM.png
