Question another rotoscope question ...

thanks for clicking ...

Is there a way of setting a movie to be a rotoscope image?
Sure there should be - but somehow I can't figure it out.

Or maybe I am just using a wrong codec !?!
Which codecs are supported by XSI or which compression is best?
Could I even put a TGA sequenze in the background?

Thanks for your time!

definitely u can....

use tga sequence
but it's quite big, and u can mjpeg codec to compress them.

the reason to use mjpeg is that everyframe is keyframe, so u can jump to any frame any time.

So can you use ANY codec as long it keys every frame?
Old 06 June 2002   #5
as long as media player can play it back, i guess u can use it in xsi....

but always do a little test before doing the whole thing

I didnt promise anything

well of course i tried around a lot ... and many videos that i can play in my media player just wont show up in XSI.

Many of them even crash XSI w/o any message!

Is there a codec to recommend?
what about quicktime, btw?

I would recommend morgan mjpeg codec, which is fast, and high quality.

but i haven't tried it in xsi yet.

thinking about mjpeg, u can always load a series of jpeg files, which is exactly the same way mjpeg codec works.
