Creating brief animations isn’t such a hard task as you would think, if the right tools are used. FotoMorph is a program that can help you set up several types of animations in just a few steps.
The program comes with a simple interface and an intuitive layout, which makes FotoMorph easy to use.
There are four types of sequences available to create with this app: “Morph”, “Warp”, “Pan” or “Transition”. Any of the four models can be viewed through a series of samples provided by the software.
Starting a new project requires that you select one of the types and pick two images. Furthermore, the animation resolution can be set by choosing one of the preset values or by providing a custom size. Additionally, the number of frames per second is adjustable to any of the available values (10, 15, 20, 25 and 30 f/s).
The program also lets you define the animation area by sizing a frame and moving it on the picture. This is particularly useful when creating a panning transition, thus enabling you to zoom in or out of a certain picture.
Furthermore, the projects are customizable by adjusting the duration, establishing delays at the start, middle or in the end. Backgrounds can be added to all animations, as well as various frames.
Text can also be applied over the frames. The font name, color and transparency can be modified, as well as the movement type and position.
The program supports a few output formats, such as GIF, AVI and SWF.
The bottom line is that FotoMorph is a nice program that can help you put together a short animation in no time. Inexperienced users should have no problems working with this app, thanks to its overall simplicity.
