Mason, $35) DMORF and RMORF are two morphing programs that support different graphics formats, but which work about the same. You can specify the number of intermediate files to be created. The higher the number, the smoother and more gradual is the resulting morph. DMORF and RMORF do not display the resulting graphics files, which both programs save in TGA format. The only way we found to view them was to use a program by the name of DTA to convert them to an Autodesk Animator FLI format and use an FLI viewing utility. (Both DTA and SHOWFLI are in this same directory.) DMORF requires a math chip and a fast CPU. If you have a 486, both requirements are automatically met. You also need VGA and several megs of hard disk space for the resulting files. [DTA] Dave's TGA Animation Program 1.8g David K. Mason $35 creates FLI animation files from graphics files.
