rotoscoping

In 3D animation, rotoscoping is a technique that allows you to create animation that mimics live action video. For example, a live actor may be filmed doing a series of actions, and the animator would have the digital character mimic the actions of the human actor for a realistic animated scene.  The rotoscoping technique was invented by Max Fleischer, who used it in his series "Out of the Inkwell" in 1915.
