Sometimes there are critical changes in production. The resolution of the plate may change (it’s not a common thing, but it may happen). Lest say that we have been working doing some roto and cleanup for a 2K DCP plate and the, they give us a 4K DCP plate. The aim of this script is to modify the roto/rotopaint nodes to adapt them to the new resolution, without having to redo all the work.
It works straight away with proportional resolution changes. However, it is possible to adapt it to work with non-proportional resolution changes too. The only thing that we should do is add an offset to the root layer modification expressions. It has been used in a professional feature film 🙂
