Hi there,

I want to morph footage with motion - people turning their head etc.

As far as I´ve researched there are two plugins: RE:Flex and BCC Morph.
I was wondering why there are not so many resources for morphing, but ok...

Can anyone tell me the difference (aside from $595 and $199) between these plugins?

Which way/and or plugin is the best to morph moving footage?

Maybe someone has additional good tips, techniques or suggestions concerning morphing.

I don't know about those plugins, but if you are looking to do some morphing on the cheap you can try this technique:

Maybe just mask the area you want to transform?

here's another method:

also, i think re:flex has a free demo (not sure about bcc) so you could try it out.

Thank you!

My problem is morphing a moving picture - stills are no real problem. I don´t know if Re:Flex or BCC can handle moving images in that sense that you can change parameters within time and the morph will know what to do :-)

RE:Flex can give you great results and can be used for morphing and image distortion. For me it's a must have plug-in. Just yesterday I used it to fix a damaged frame in a shot using the adjusting frames before and after to create a new one.

The only thing I lack is the ability for AE to track motion paths (not the motion shape-solution they have now, it's quite sub-par) or for a third party to send motion path data to AE reliably. The trick with RE:Flex is that each vertex-point has to have a corresponding point in the before and after image for the morphs to be calculated correctly.
