After Effects is 20 years old this year (yes, really!) and in that time it has evolved hugely in order to make rotoscoping much less of an eye-bleeding task.
To celebrate this, Adobe has put together this video which demonstrates how After Effects has changed throughout the years and the evolution of rotoscoping - plus it gives you a sneak peek of an upcoming new tool. A Refine Edge feature is demonstrated, which will make capturing fine detail like hair an easier process.
