What is morphing

Morphing is a special technique that creates a smooth, controlled transformation of one image into another. The morphing effect is widely used for various tasks ranging from generation of fancy special effects, smoothing transitions between video frames to funny warping of faces and mixing parent's photos for prediction of how their child will look like (or recreation of past hero image from the photos of his descendants). A classic example of this sort of transformation is shown in the well-known Black Or White video clip by Michael Jackson, where the faces of different people change one into another.

Morph Man has won its worldwide recognition not only because it is a powerful instrument, but also because its interface makes it it accessible even for users who are not professional video engineers - parents who make 'kindergarten-to-college' video transition from their kid's photos, dentists and plastic surgeons who make eye-catching before-after videos, historians who reconstruct faces of old heroes, and many many others .

MorphMan 4.0 is the newest release of the most powerful morphing application for PC. This version introduces layers which allow for creation of sophisticated morphing effects and easier integration with video compositing tools. Use full power of fast morphing algorithms, onion skin interface, live preview, vector shape tools, edge detection, and motion estimation for creation of hi-end photo-to-photo and video-to-video morphing.

Changes since last version:
- Layered morphing
- Canvas layer for video compositing
- Text (XML) format for morphing projects
- Morphing algorithm speedup
- Export to Flash animation from batch render
