Sure Alex, I agree this is not a perfect Morph effect, but its quick, fun and FREE, so I guess its worth a shot :)
I've mention in the tutorial that if you're after a professional morph effect you should look at the RE:Flex plugin from RE:Vision.
You can find more details here: http://www.revisionfx.com/products/reflex/
Thanks for your suggestion as well.

I had a look through i found this program. I suspect the results will be more visually correct.

Also i recommend that you adjust the hue of each flower so that they have the same color first. Change the colors back later, this should give you a better morph.

i'm sorry, this isn't a good technique. Adobe's pixel interpolation is not a tool for morphing two images, it's low quality and designed so that the image is only seen in a very short frame so that things overall make sense. gradual changes look bad. As seen in this video where the morph segments into boxes that seem to push out into the new image. this is good for interpolation, bad for a slow morph. I strongly suggest another technique. I'm looking for an alternate now.
