Nope, I mean Tweening. They were drawing keyframes on elements and letting the software connect the dots, hence the independent shifting of color blocks found within an object/face/etc. It's why everything swims.

Rotoscoping has been around fooooorever.

Well coming from an animation background, tweening's been around just as long...hahah. I didn't know that was the technique they used in waking life though. Interesting. I thought rotoscoping was what the movie was well known for.

Russ, wikipedia agrees with you anyways. apparently the software used was Rotoshop, a digital rotoscoping program developed for the production.

Rotoscoping itself, however, was not Bakshi's invention, but that of experimental silent film maker Max Fleischer, who patented the process in 1917. A variety of artists were employed, so the feel of the movie continually changes, and gets stranger as time goes on. The result is a surreal, shifting dreamscape.

The animators used inexpensive "off-the-shelf" Apple Macintosh computers. The film was mostly produced using Rotoshop, a custom-made rotoscoping program that creates blends between keyframe vector shapes (the name is a play on popular bitmap graphics editing software Photoshop, which also makes use of virtual "layers"), and created specifically for the production by Bob Sabiston. Linklater would again use this animation method for his 2006 film A Scanner Darkly.
Split pot, we call that.

I was mainly pointing out that rotoscoping predates computer imaging whereas digital keyframing would obviously have to come later.

yep, I think rotoscoping was even done on Sleeping Beauty. Prince of Persia, too!

That's so weird to watch because the moves are 1:1. It's almost creepy (ie. the sort of lean in before the jump).

This movie is mind blowing not simply because of the way it was filmed but the content off it. It brings about alot of critical thinking.
