1. This shot started my career and it shows. I quality checked this roto and there are five fundamental notes to fix.

    I explain these notes in detail on my blog.

    Note that the footage loops eight times as the shot is only 39 frames long.

  3. Another essential step in developing Roto Vision is to set up an "Overlay Check". Here's an example of one next to the original plate.

  4. Professional Roto Artists know how to "see Roto". This is known as "having the eye" or what I call "Roto Vision". The first step to develop Roto Vision is to study the plate. This video shows you watching the plate at least 8 times. Repeat viewing is how Pro Artists understand the challenges of each shot and gives them time to develop possible approaches.
