Although you can apply a Shape Curve to a morph, the actual moving track of a key dot from Image 1 to Image 2 is still a straight line. Beginning with version 4.0, you can use a real curve as morph track instead of previous straight lines. You'll find that you can easily create very different and amazing morphs with this new feature. Choose the Sequence/Track Curve menu to open the Track Curve window.
The track curve is specified by a sequence of control points and smoothly passes through each point in the sequence. There are at least two control points on a curve. The red cross on the curve marks the position of each frame. You can zoom the working area by using mouse wheel scrolling or clicking the Zoom In or Zoom Out button, and you can drag and drop to pan the working area.
Add Point: Click anywhere in the working area () to add one control point.
Move Point: Drag and drop a control point to move it.
Delete Point: Right-click a control point to delete it.
Tension: Drag the slider () to adjust the curve tension or directly type a value from 0 to 20.
Flip: Click the Flip Horizontal or Flip Vertical button () to produce horizontal or vertical mirroring of the curve.
Set for All Sequences: Make the Set for All Sequences () checked will apply this curve to all the sequences of the current project.
Reset: Click the Reset button () to clear the current settings and back to the original status.
Load Curve: Load a curve in the curve library () by double-clicking, then it will be displayed in the working area immediately.
Save Curve: Click the Save button (), the current curve in the working area will be saved to the bottom of the curve library.
Delete Curve: Select a curve in the curve library, then press Del key to delete it.
You can launch Track Curve as well as Feature/Shape Curve window at the same time.
You can edit the curve while the morph movie is playing in real time, which means you will immediately see the effects on your final morph.
• Track Curve is only available in FantaMorph Deluxe.
