How to make a perfect Rotoscoping? Help!

I mean, no matter how hard I try the end result will jitter and it "reads" that particular area was cut out using masks. Let's say I have 100 frames of material, and if I put keyframes for masking every 25th frame, - between those Key frames, cut out edges "swim". BUT, If I make a keyframe EVERY frame the end result is terrible jitter an noticable noise cos its hard sometimes to make a precise mask.

Are there any Golden Rules for successful rotoscoping? What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance!

Some general advice would be:
- analyse the movement in the shot
- use simple shapes
- if possible, use Mocha for tracking your shapes into position
- try to avoid animating individual mask points
- set as few keyframes as possible and as many as necessary

A very good book on this topic is Rotoscoping: Techniques and Tools for the Aspiring Artist
