Rotoscoping - the art of isolating objects in a video with animated masks - becomes very tricky if the object you want to isolate has a lot of motion blur. In the heavily blurred edges of the object parts of the background will be visible that are not easy to eliminate. In this tutorial you learn how to rotoscope such blurry objects in Adobe After Effects. We will first do a normal rotoscoping with a hard edge and then recreate the blurry edges such that no background will be visible anymore.
