How exactly is Rotoscoping done and what is (equpiment ect) involved in creating it? What are it's limitations?
Rotoscoping is animation using filmed footage as a reference. It can be used to create travelling mattes for compositing and colour grading or to match animated characters to human performance.
Pre-digital, rotoscoping was drawn frame-by-frame by projecting the image and drawing over the projected image.
Now most (if not all) rotoscoping is done using the computer.

The video was shot in 30 frames per second but the post house use only 15 frames per seconds. i use a panasonic dvx100a, 2 mini brutus (4K each) on the top with a big overhead silk, 4 2K open face bounced for fill light, and 2 5k. I recommended in my experience shot at 250 shutter speed or more, because when you use (in post) each frame, the frames shot at that shutter are better to use because the borders are clear and the person who draw in ilustrator or other programs don't have problems when people move, here attach few productios photos, hope helps

Silhouette FX have a plug in that called Silhouette Roto that might make it easier. I never tried it.
