How to create a morph transition

The Morph Transition creates a fun metamorphosis effect by analyzing the content in one clip and blending it into the content of the next clip. You can customize how the morph transition occurs by setting a guideline for each clip to help determine the area of focus for the transition, such as a horizon line. Morph transitions work best between clips that have similar reference points and clips that are the same dimensions.

1. Add media to the timeline

Add two clips to the timeline. Morph transitions work best between clips that have similar reference points and clips that are the same dimensions. Example - similar blue skies that can be blended to aid in the transition.

In the Morph Transition window, compare the orange transition guide lines in the Start and End area.

You can add nodes by clicking the guide line. You can delete nodes by right-clicking a node and choosing Delete or Delete All (for all but the first and last node).
