One of the top searches on Google in the how to category in Kenya in the last 7 days has been ‘how to remove rotoscope filter‘.
If you are familiar with TikTok, then you probably have a hint of what the rotoscope filter is. If not, it is one of the latest filters to dominate the app; it turns whoever is being filmed into a colourful cartoon silhouette.
TikTok is one of the most popular social media apps in the world, with millions of users enjoying user-generated video content.
There’s always a new trend that sweeps the app, whether it’s a particular sound or a fun filter.
Some users have gotten a little too cheeky with the filter, stripping down to their underwear and dancing around naked while it’s on. The filter obscures any nuance, leaving viewers with only the subject’s colorful outline prancing around.
Many people have been attempting to find out if there is a method to remove the filter off other people’s films after they’ve been uploaded to the app, but is it possible?
So, can you really remove the filter from other people’s video?
Fortunately for those who have posted films with the Rotoscope filter, it appears that there is no way to remove the filter from a video once it has been posted – even if it has been downloaded and processed through special editing tools.
However of course, much like a music or other effect, you may remove the filter from a video before it’s posted.
Multiple videos have been posted claiming that you can remove the Rotoscope from a user’s video after it’s been posted, but fortunately for those who’ve braved the nude, this isn’t true.
