  6. CD Morph (German Language)

    THIS IS A GERMAN LANGUAGE VIDEO TUTORIAL

    1 Hour 10 minute video tutorial (in German) on using CD Morph. The link takes you to Cactus Dan's site where you can buy the plugin and find out more information.

    This plugin is a point selection Morph system that works with a Point or Polygon object. It does not need additional copies of the object for each morph target shape. Only one reference copy of the mesh is needed. The morph shapes are stored in tags, and only the selected points that are morphed are stored in the tags. This makes CD Morph a very fast morphing solution.
