PD: Rotoscoping in Adobe Animate, with Johnathan Stewart


A face-to-face workshop on Thursday 3rd November 4-5.30pm, exploring rotoscoping in Adobe Animate.

This workshop will provide a practical hands on experience aimed at all Media Arts and Film educators from 7-12 who are keen to see how Adobe Animate is a very useful tool for painting over video or rotoscoping. Rotoscope animation describes the process of creating animated sequences by tracing over live-action footage frame by frame. Though it can be time consuming, rotoscoping allows animators to create life-like characters who move just like people in the real world. In this short lesson we will learn how to import footage into the animate timeline, manage layers, add keyframes and use the basic drawing tools to add detail and trace parts of the video. We will also cover how to export the video. Teachers can then take these ideas back to their own classroom and share with their students.

This workshop is facilitated by Johnathan Stewart and will take place at Ambrose Treacy College.

Jonathan Stewart completed Television training majoring in editing in New Zealand in 1992 before training as a Primary teacher. Since then Jonathan Has taught ICT, Digital Technologies and Film from Years 7 to 13 in the New Zealand education system and more recently Years 10 to 12 at Ambrose Treacy College.
