This morphing program lets you create animations that transform one
photo into another or distort single images. You can print out
images from your creations, or save the resulting animations for
use on the Web, as screen savers, or as stand-alone movies.
You can get started quickly by using the New Project Wizard,
which lets you create simple movies. To use this powerful program
to its full potential, however, it’s a good idea to take the
nine-lesson tutorial available via the Help system.
Your handiwork can be exported in one of several movie and still
formats, including .avi, animated GIF, JPEG, and so on. The options
are too numerous to go into here; visit Abrosoft’s site for a
complete listing. The features list also provides an exhaustive
comparison of the three FantaMorph versions available: SE ($30),
Pro ($50), and Deluxe ($100).
This trial version is free for 30 days and it gives you access
to all of the features available in FantaMorph’s three versions.
Note: Although the program can use OpenGL hardware acceleration, it
worked fine on my old IBM ThinkPad notebook.
Although FantaMorph is easy enough for computer-savvy laypeople
to use, its powerful feature set could make it a good choice for
Web designers and other professionals as well.
