Importing Files for Rotoscoping With OpenToonz

Sounds simple enough, but without comprehensive documentation yet, importing files for rotoscoping in OpenToonz, isn’t as straight forward as it seems.

OpenToonz has made quite an impression, being a powerhouse for 2D animation, since Django launched the OpenToonz project, in cooperation with Digital Video and Studio Ghibli. What is even more of an impression s how it quickly developed a community around the features and usage of OpenToonz. Elon Dan, or Mr. Dan INSANE as he is known online, has been contributing to the OpenToonz tutorial arena, by posting lots of quick step-by-steps.

Here, Elon shows how you can import files for Rotoscoping in OpenToonz, and how to use the onion skinning feature to start building your work overtop of the templates.
