Rotoscoping is an animation technique in which animators trace over live-action film movement, frame by frame, for use in animated films. Originally, recorded live-action film images were projected onto a frosted glass panel and re-drawn by an animator. This projection equipment is called a rotoscope, although this device has been replaced by computers in recent years. In the visual effects industry, the term rotoscoping refers to the technique of manually creating a matte for an element on a live-action plate so it may be composited over another background.
Another Rotoscope was invented by LeRoy Wotring for orthoptic training. The device was manufactured by the Wotring Instrument Company of Columbus, Ohio. In 1950, American Optical purchased the assets of Wotring Instruments and continued to build and market the product. Orthoptic training was used for a variety of eye conditions including amblyopia.
