Morphing moving images.
by teddy jelster
Hi Mike. I hope this message finds you well. I watched the morphing tutorial and I've done a bit of morphing with shake before - only 2 still images, but I'm in a position where I need to learn quick how to morph two moving faces together. I've read the help but I haven't come across anything that says whether its possible to morph two moving faces together. But you say its possible to do so in this tutorial, I know it's going to be a frame by frame job, but I wondering how to use the ui to do this?

I will be removing each face from each separate movie by keyframing a rotoshape, but here is where I get stuck - I can't seem to seem to figure how to morph as each frame skips past...

Any help you can give would be hugely appreciated.

Thanks,

Teddy.

How to become a Feature Film Compositor by John Lafauce Jr.

How to become a Feature Film Compositor by John Lafauce Jr.

Have you ever wanted to contribute to building a twenty thousand man army in "Troy", make a mouse fly a plane in "Stuart Little 2", or launch a doomed luxury liner in "Titanic?" You can achieve visual feats you never dreamed possible and accomplish them all through the magic of compositing. Read this article written by John Lafauce Jr., and see... How to become a feature film compositor. A note just to clarify: this article is about high-end 2d/3d compositing for long form media such as films, where the goal is to make the work seamless, integrated and "invisible". Not to be confused with compositing for motion graphics, where the objective is to make the object or design stand out and be "visible" to the viewer.
