Remember that scene at the end of Terminator 2
or that one
Michael Jackson video where the faces morphed into each other? With
the free Sqrlz Morph, it’s now as simple as a couple of mouse
clicks to morph between any number of same-size images.
If the images aren’t the same size, Equalize Sizes will convert
all of them to the same size image as the currently-selected image.
Then, add a couple of “Control Points” which are where the program
will focus its animation. Move the control points around on the
other images so you have good spots to morph into. Then, click a
button to run the animation. It’s that easy. You can save as an AVI
file or an animated GIF.
One annoying bit is that already-placed control points can’t be
dragged and dropped–you must click once to “pick up” the control
point, and then place it somewhere with another click. This is
non-intuitive. Also, deleting a control point isn’t a matter of
right-clicking–you have to select the Delete button first.
Finally, there’s no undo, so getting the control points right is a
matter of a lot of trial and error.
It’s highly amusing to morph celebrities or sports figures or
even family members. Make an important political point or just
amuse your friends. The best part is–it’s freeware.
