Gonna do some new things for my Superman 2 fan cut which will require using shots from Superman 3. I want to take Superman out of those locations and put him in different ones. Which program is best for doing this with rotoscoping?

I am not sure that this is rotoscoping exactly, but I would imagine that you would need After Effects for this.

Yep the new after effects should be able to handle this very well, i believe it has a new feature designed for the same type of job you wish to perform.

Wow. This whole time I've been telling people it's called rotoscoping. Ugh. Anyway, thanks for the advice, the name if the effect, and of course, the website.

This post is over 10 years old now, so I'm curious what is recommended now for rotoscoping or masking?

I used after effects recently for the first time to remove Fred Durst from an old MTV video to put him in Return of the Jedi (long story). I managed to get good results in a fairly short amount of time. Other people I've talked to who seem to do more of this kind of stuff always talk about After Effects. I presume After Effects is the best, but I haven't particularly looked too far into it.

Before after effects I did this using premiere a couple of times which took a long time as I'm pretty sure it's not meant for that.
