Rotoscoped Animation using photoshop
I'm trying to achieve a similar effect to that used in the Beastie Boys Video for the song "Shadrach", directed by Nathaniel Hornblower (AKA Adam York).
Hopefully I've attached a few frames of the style of animation to this message to give you an idea what I'm trying to achieve.
I want to have a layer of animation of a figure leaping across the screen while my edited DV plays in the background, In the video the animation looks like about 8 frames a second, would I be able to do this in Photoshop and export as a filmstrip or something? In a similar way to that described in other threads (light-sabres etc.)
I know the frame rates will be totally different but I'm going for a dreamy, jumpy, leapy effect for the animation anyway, so I don't think this will matter.
I'm using a PC with Photoshop 7.0 and Premiere 6.0.
Any advice appreciated.
