Girl to Dog

A MorphPlus(TM) ANIM

Making GIRL2DOG

This ANIM was created with ASDG's MorphPlus. MorphPlus is a stand-alone program which is compatible with all Art Department Professional(R) modules.

GIRL2DOG shows off a morph between a girl and dog. There are a number of attributes to this morph which only MorphPlus is capable of producing.

The generation of the text and dropshadow and the placement of images onto the backdrop were done in FRED, the ADPro/MorphPlus FRame EDitor. The final images were compiled into an ANIM file using an Ordered dither.

Other MorphPlus Info

MorphPlus is a professional cinematic visual effects package. It is currently in use in television and cinematic productions, replacing high end systems running on various platforms.

For example, it has been used for several key scenes from the pilot TV movie Babylon 5 as well as a recent episode (November 10, 1992) of Quantum Leap. At the time of this writing (January 18, 1993), MorphPlus has been used in several motion pictures, and is in use on several television shows.

Since its release on October 1st 1992, the major Amiga software distributors in North America report that MorphPlus has outsold any competing product.

The opinions of noted experts in the field:

«The user interface on MorphPlus is one of the easiest I've seen. Setting up a morph is very fast and rendering it is equally as fast. I feel that this program is on par with other programs like those from PDI and ILM.»

Peter W. Moyer
Vice President/Post Production
The Post Group

The Post Group is the largest privately held post production facility in the world.

«It's scarily realistic. MorphPlus produces the most realistic shape shifting special effects I have ever seen on a desktop. MorphPlys was the perfect solution to create the complex morphing sequences that Babylon 5 required.»

Mark Swain, Animator
Foundation Imaging

Foundation Imaging are the creators of the special effects for Babylon 5.

Many of the advanced features found in MorphPlus (and available nowhere else) are present due to input from visual effects experts. Our product is designed for (and partly by) professionals in the industry. As a result, we believe our product will produce the best results with the least effort in any production environment.

MorphPlus's morphing program manages four types of projects. These are:

1. Moving Morphs: Two incoming streams of moving frames being merged to produce an output stream.

2. Still Morphs: Two incoming still images being merged to produce an output stream.

3. Moving Warps: One incoming stream of moving frames being deformed to produce an output stream.

4. Still Warps: One incoming still image being deformed to produce an output stream.

Keep in mind that MorphPlus offers more than morphing. Every effect performed by MorphPlus is performed at cinematic quality levels and is controlled by a intuitive WYSIWYG user interface.
