What struck us even more than Abrosoft FantaMorph Pro's enormously elegant and straightforward interface was how well the friendly project wizard and tutorials put the advanced animation software within an amateur's reach. Powerful but easily applied tools seamlessly morph sequences of two or more images while providing an instant preview. The color cycle tool, for instance, eases the marking of key points on each image in the sequence by turning the default green dots into a rainbow spectrum, making it easier to distinguish the placement of individual points on the corresponding images.
User controls dictate frame length, morphing style, and one of seven video-export formats, including AVI, Flash movie, and screensaver. Conferring a professional polish and pleasing intermediate-to-advanced users is a selection of additional dramatic effects like lighting, masks, curves, and filters. Note that the demo version prints a watermark on all output--a common trial restriction on programs of this breed.

our number 1 ranked morphing software and "TopTenREVIEWS Gold Award Winner"
is perfect for anyone just starting or well-versed in the world of morphing. FantaMorph
offers more possibilities with its diverse feature set, along with the
quick-editing power of Real Time Playing—making it the most powerful, morphing
program we've reviewed.
FantaMorph's main screen displays your Source Image, Target Image and a preview screen, all at the same time. This multi-screen display makes editing a cinch—allowing you to view the changes you make while conveniently keeping your images open for quick edits.
The "Real Time" Playing is the feature that pushed FantaMorph over the top for us. It lets you view your morphing sequences immediately, without having to first save it to a file like most morphing software, saving you time and headaches.
With plenty of morphing tools; FantaMorph lets you crop, resize, rotate, flip and adjust your images and add foreground or background images. Light, color and contrast also help enhance your morph.
Another morphing tool, the Editing Magnifier, enlarges the area under and around your cursor for better accuracy while placing control dots. Control dots are the reference points that morphing programs use to connect the images you're morphing.
FantaMorph includes a warp feature, which lets you perform cool effects like making an image of someone's face appear to wink, smile or move its ears.
FantaMorph also supports all the popular morphing formats. You can convert your morph sequences into an Image Sequence, AVI, Animated GIF, Flash and many other formats.
FantaMorph supports over nine languages—the most we found—allowing you to customize to fit your needs.

FantaMorph Pro 3.5, Image Morphing For The
Rest Of Us
Those of us who have serious video-effects software are happy people (of course, if they really CAN use their software). Besides the serious creative works, they can create small but cool effects for web pages, presentations, and entertainment. But the rest of us, who don’t like to buy and study those «professional packages», can still Do The Effects with small, pretty and easy software tools that feature narrower but yet sufficient set of capabilities.
FantaMorph is such a tool, that addresses all tasks about draw morphing between two images (in the very last version, FantaMorph can even calculate series of morphing transformations for series of images!).
In FantaMorph’s easy and pretty — skin-based — interface, ALL things are easy and pretty. You open the two images that you want to morph between (the software supports the majority of existing graphics formats). Before you go on with the morphing, you can edit the images in-place — crop, rotate, resize and apply some basic effects. Finally, you setup the «key points» for the morphing and hit Start!
The efficiency of the software allows you to see the immediate preview: a movie with the morphing in the «real» speed. Now you can see this video, all frames in the sequence, and save the video or any of its frames. The software allows saving movies in many formats (even Flash video and self-executable EXE video file!)

I have used morphing in the past (several high-end products) but found the rendering speed or node placement too cumbersome to consider beyond several scenes. Your product gives a quality result and is fast enough to master and use... I'm glad I gave it a try. The results are excellent!
- Gary O.
I cannot explain my sentiments how pretty and classical this program is. Abrosoft FantaMorph is a professional tool to blend two different pictures with splendid results. It is effective, steady, and yet easy to understand and quite comfortable to use... That's the program I was looking for years to soothe my fantasies. I really enjoyed it. Excellent!
- Muhammad A.
I looked at several morphing programs before I purchased FantaMorph, and your product outshone the others by far. I think you have done a marvelous job with the interface, tools, and capabilities. I produced a wonderful little movie on my first try!
- Sue B.
I've tried your trial FantaMorph and am quite pleased with how easy and user-friendly it is for first-timer like me.
- Anthony C.
I've just bought your program today. Brilliant!! I had never heard of Morphing before today & I suppose I'm only using the basics - but it seems so easy to use - so far. I didn't think my 2 grandsons looked that much alike, yet when you watch the transformation it's amazing.
- Eric A.
before bouncing on this product always thought this was something only confine to the professionals..... its going to be fantastic to try FantaMorph. cheers to the folks who created this......
I will market your product to all my friends and associates in the graphics field. A product so easy to use with a fantastic GUI and to experience real-time morphing is out of this world.
- Charles F.
You make a great morphing program, better then any others I have used. Attached are the project files for the morphs that I have submitted. Keep up the great work, and I may have some more morphs to submit in a year.
- Philip S.
May I just say job well done on a fantastic program! I am a long time Gryphon Morph user and I recently went onto the web to see if there was an update for that program and found that it was no longer made. So I looked around and found your product and saw that it was very acclaimed. I love it. It is so easy to use and surprisingly fast.
- Ellis E.
I used Gryphon Morph some years ago and was looking for a suitable alternative. FantaMorph is wonderfully smooth. And the real-time preview knocked my socks off. It's not only helpful... it's essential.
- Ralph M.
I was introduced to FantaMorph through work and have been impressed by its ease of use. You guys did a great job keeping the functions of this simple concept (morphing) intuitive to the user, and I cannot praise the comfortable learning curve enough.
First off I want to compliment your product. I'm looking at a couple different morphing software right now and your interface is much more attractive and easy to use. I've done a couple tests and I love the results.
- Seth M.
I played with one or two morphing programs a few years ago, but I was shocked at the fantastic quality and real-time previewing with FantaMorph. I mean, you can actually shift a dot around and see how it affects the morph in real time. Absolutely amazing stuff!
I appreciate your help. Your support is fantastic. So fast I could hardly believe it.
