Tracker2Mask is an After Effects script that computes the movement of mask shapes based on the movement of trackpoints. It is easy and flexible to use. In particular you don't need one trackpoint for each maskpoint.

Example

I want to personally thank you for saving me from countless hours of Roto-Hell. Patrick Siemer, www.tapeandglue.com, after finishing the clip above
I don't know how I'd live without this script. I use it every day.Jack Tunnicliffe, Java Post Production

Workflow

  1. track a few points (something between one and four points is reasonable, even for complex mask shapes) that represent the basic movement of the object which you want to draw a mask around
  2. keyframe the mask by hand in the first and last frame
  3. use the script to predict keyframes in between (the script uses the tracker information for this prediction which is hence much better than the simple interpolation done by after effects itself)

The third step can be interleaved with manual corrections which leads to a quite fast, assisted rotoscoping workflow.

Tutorial


Rotoscope the shape of a moving car based on only four trackpoints, for simpler shapes often one trackpoint is sufficient.
