* ''WesternAnimation/LovingVincent'' is a film about the death of Creator/VincentVanGogh done in the same style as his paintings. Each frame was an oil painting based on live-action footage projected onto the canvas, allowing the filmmakers to make a film in the same method Van Gogh did his artwork.



* The seagulls flying over the burning gas station on ''Film/TheBirds'' were actually shot at a Cliffside in Spain. Rotoscoping was used to mask out the sea and cliff, leaving only the birds.



* Music/DireStraits, "Money for Nothing".

* Music/DireStraits, "Money for Nothing". Interestingly, not for the animated portions (an early use of CGI), but to add color effects on the live-action footage of the band performing.

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' uses this on occasion, usually for complex dance sequences (such as the Jitterbug song "Jungle Love" and Peter performing [[{{Music/Madonna}} "How I Feel"]] in "New Kidney In Town")

* 1974 short ''WesternAnimation/{{Fuji}}'' mixes this with MediumBlending, as the cartoon shows the live action film of the people on a train, shows the Rotoscoping animation of the people on the train, and later shows one superimposed on the other so the both are visible.

* Light rotoscoping was used on the ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'' specials ''She's a Good Skate, Charlie Brown'' and ''It's Flashbeagle, Charlie Brown'' for the skating scenes in the former and dancing in the latter. The footage wasn't "traced" as with typical rotoscoping, but reinterpreted for the characters' exaggerated proportions. (Fun fact: Charles Schultz's daughter Jill performed reference for both specials.)

* Specifically averted in ''Disney/LiloAndStitch''. One of the special features shows the animation process of the opening hula dance scene, in which the animators watched footage of actual dancers and painstakingly animated the movements by hand; it's mentioned that they did this instead of rotoscoping it, because...um...HardWorkFallacy?%%I actually don't remember exactly what they said the reason was; if you do, can you please add it here.

* Used as a transitional device in ''Film/ChargeOfTheLightBrigade'' between the animated sequences created by Creator/RichardWilliams and the live action shots. The animated sequences themselves, despite the hyper-detailed designs, used no rotoscoping.
