I recently purchased the creation disc and found a rotoscopy bin. aaah, what is it for?
I understand rotoscopy is tracing over live footage. Is there documentation for this?
I have tried search. I'm confused........ :!:

Hello ingie01,

The goal of the rotoscopy panel is to simply extract the outlines of an image with transparency.
To do that each button call the FX Stack with several effects which have different settings for each button.
Here is some examples :
