has updated Morph Age, the consumer-oriented image distortion tool for Mac OS X, to version 1.2. With the new version, you can finally morph images; only warping was possible before, according to Raphael Sebbe of eX-cinder.
Morph Age works by allowing you to define warp curves on the original image. Any change made on the target warp curves is reflected on the resulting image through the corresponding distortion effect. Morph Age can animate warp curves independently, so that different parts of the image (eyes, mouth, ears, etc.) can move at different times. Also, animation effects are available, such as springy motion. Morph Age can show the result in real-time when using the Live Update mode, so you can prototype the transformation.
Input image formats include TIFF, PDF, GIF, and JPEG; output formats are TIFF and QuickTime.
The new morphing feature in version 1.2 includes the ability to crop and reframe a target image. Morph Age 1.2 adds a default movie path and a toolbar. There’s also updated documentation, French language localization, and more. Morph Age costs US$20; version 1.2 is a free upgrade for registered users.
