Recently I heard that rotoscoping is the practice of taking stock filmed footage, decompressing it into frames, hand-drawing over each and every single frame, and stringing the drawings up again into a video segment. This allows for realistic and fluid movement with unrealistic art styles. It takes, on average, 5 hours to make a 40-second video, weeks to make a 5-minuet video, and 2 years to make a 3-hour video. Due to this, it is often used for important cuts and scenes in animated movies and never for unnecessary parts of which an idea can be conveyed withought needing fluid movement.
