Adobe Immediately after Effects CS5 – A Appear Into Rotobrush//Masking with Anime.
A fairly quick recording done testing the rotobrush features in Adobe After Effects CS5. IT IS just a test copy of AE CS5, so it isn’t the final release just yet because that version is due to hit on mid-May. In any case, it’s just a look into the future. The Rotobrush basically masks out a character and follows each frame in order to provide a smooth mask within all motion provided. It works best when footage is changed in someone “per frame” like anime often is, but of course it was designed for live-action so the results would be much better there. In any case, just a preview and small tutorial. After Effects has always been a powerful compositing tool, and a motion graphics advocate but now, with the new additions in AE CS5, as well as many of the Adobe programs, we are going to be seeing an increase in the “indie” films with low-budget creating effects that could rival large studio productions. With a single collective suite of the Adobe products, a person with a nice DSLR camera (Nikon D3s, Canon 5D Mark II and EOS 7D/Rebel T2i, Panasonic Lumix GH1, etc) and a computer with a 64-bit capable processor and a capable video GPU card, Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects could be all you need in the industry. Well, for the most part. 🙂
