Lesson 6. QuickPaint > Dustbusting and Rotoscoping

Dustbusting and Rotoscoping

Dustbusting and rotoscoping are two things you will be doing a lot of, unless of course you have an army of low-paid drones to do it for you. Dustbusting is the process of painting out dirt that was introduced onto an image during the film-scanning process. Rotoscoping is a frame-by-frame hand-painting technique that is used, for instance, to remove wires and rigs from an image. QuickPaint can help you perform these otherwise thankless jobs.

Dustbusting

When film negative is printed on positive film stock or when film is transferred to video, any small specks of dirt on the surface of the film will also be transferred. Negative dirt appears white when transferred, while dirt on positive film appears black. You just happen to be the sorry sap who will be painting out the dirt.
