However, rotoscoping has a bad reputation among the animation community, including men such as Creator/RichardWilliams, [[DisneysNineOldMen Milt Kahl]], Creator/ShamusCulhane and Creator/JohnKricfalusi, being perceived as a lifeless, poor substitute for character animation. Even Creator/RalphBakshi, a frequent user of it in his feature films, admits that he loathed using it and that it was only used due to his low budgets and inexperienced younger artists. In fact, Max Fleischer himself came to realize the limitations of the very device he created early on, opting for more creative use of character animation instead (although he did make some exceptions).

* The lightsaber effects in the original ''Film/StarWars'' trilogy. Rotoscoping is still the word you would use to describe the prequel trilogy's lightsabers, but it's the modern computer-aided version.

The sequel trilogy (as shown in some behind the scenes photos of ''Film/TheForceAwakens'') used prop glowing sticks (similar in look to the Force FX lightsaber toys), with some digital enchancements to it.

Creator/MaxAndDaveFleischer invented the process in [[UsefulNotes/TheSilentAgeOfAnimation 1915]] to animate Koko the Clown of their ''WesternAnimation/OutOfTheInkwell'' series, and later used it to animate Creator/CabCalloway's dancing in three WesternAnimation/BettyBoop shorts, but the most famous Fleischer rotoscoping was done in the studio's WesternAnimation/SupermanTheatricalCartoons.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8yVjGjSMv8 This immensely disturbing PSA]], which was created for the Safety on the Move's ''Drinking and Driving Wrecks Lives'' campaign. A man's haunting, ghostly face stares ''[[BreakingTheFourthWall right into your soul]]'', and recounts how his "great bloke" Mark killed the parents of two children in a drunk driving accident on Christmas. [[NightmareFuel Good luck trying to sleep after watching this]].
