Join Dermot O' Connor for an in-depth discussion in this video Morphing, part of Toon Boom Animate and Harmony Essential Training.
- Now it's time to look at morph tweening…or if you're from a Flash background shape tweening.…So, occasionally you'll hear me slip a little bit…but it's a very, very powerful tool…and here's a good example of what it's used for.…It's an undulating shape…that goes from like one natural curved form to another.…And these are very tedious to animate by hand…and this is what most people use morph tweening for.…Here's another example of a…simple little face that I made.…So you can even use this technique…for more naturalistic character-based work.…
And if you look how this is structured,…that's all happening with one layer.…And there's only about three little hints…on it just to help it.…So even with all these intersecting lines…it's doing a very, very good job.…So, let's start with a couple of issues…that might trip you off if you begin working with it.…So, I'm going to select the rectangular, the box tool.…Make a fixed thickness line…and let's start drawing in a new drawing layer.…I'll just create little box…and I'll hit the F5 to extend it to here.…
