Rotoscoping

Rotoscoping is a traditional animator’s technique that involves tracing live-motion film to create animation. This process is named after an actual machine, the Rotoscope, which projected live-action film onto an animation board. There, an animator could easily trace the outline of an actor frame by frame to get natural motion that would be too difficult to animate by hand. The old Disney animators often used rotoscoping to do studies, and feature movies and commercials rely on rotoscoping even today.

You can use Flash to import and display digitized videos of actors or moving objects and then do the rotoscoping yourself.
