Morphing Page

(This first morph is probably too big to view well).

These morphs were all done using my custom elastic triangle mesh method.

Here's one I did for a prof. Weird how I keep making morphs for the current director of grad studies....

Here are some more morphs done by high school students in our Utah High School Summer Computing Institute. They are pretty rough, but the total time to teach and use the system was about 2 hours.

Here are some references for morphing (taken from a message posted by Randy Rohrer of GW University).
