Thanks to Morpheus user queenb****3769 (are there that many?) for sending this one in. Interestingly enough, there is actually some gothic architecture here – in the romantic moonlit backdrop, complete with tiny bats (of course) – before she dons her high heels and beams down to the red underworld hotel.
A blog showcasing extraordinary animations created by everyday people
Morpheus user and YouTube member thomastittle sent us a nice note pointing to his brilliant, remarkable and – yes – enchanting animation of “Alyssa.” You can view the video here. Complete with soundtrack, this is a cinematic, compelling, cleverly-paced use of Morpheus to tell the story of a child’s growth. It exudes all the love of a caring parent, and practically creates a new medium – the photo album of the future. Thanks thomastittle!
Like a doll come to life in a Stephen King story, or an instantaneous snapshot across the room at the merry prankster’s midnight party, you see her eyes move toward you as she perceives your gaze and the color shift while all else remains the same. Killer concept and execution on this strobe effect morph. We like the butterflies and the sig too.

cherrytap is billed as the “Internet’s first online pub,” and they don’t mean publication. Seems like Morpheus has become a hit among a bunch of the early adoptors of cherrytap, for creating cutting-edge animated user images. It seems to help the community stay one step ahead of their obvious model, MySpace, as all things that come out of the Bay Area are slightly ahead of the curve in terms of style, innovation and sheer audacity. In any case, they’re open 24/7 (though still in stealth mode), and the party never stops. Morpheus at small size works well too – why have a static photo when you can self-display using a sophisticated animation created with Morpheus? We didn’t think of it, but we like it! Users always push the product to limits the developer-creators never dreamed of, and that’s a good thing. Tap into that!
Odd how the geometry of a room can feel suddenly yanked out from under you, like a proverbial carpet or a tablecloth at a fine dinner. What is the relation of these two women? Guess what, we have no idea either. It’s like “You know, I was just minding my own business, waiting for Bela Lugosi to come by, when suddenly it all changed and I was blond and on the phone — plus the house had changed.” We think David Lynch might enjoy this one; unfortunately that might also mean that not everyone will. Well, we have morphs and animations for all tastes. Sorry for the hiatus, but we’re BAAAACCKKK!
With this post, we begin a series of experimental animations on celebrities, trying to draw out some of the more dynamic elements made possible by Morpheus. If you have ideas for celebrity combos you’d like to see represented here, let us know by by leaving a comment below or contribute your own!
Morpheus Photo Animation Suite is currently featured at Windows Marketplace, right in the sweet spot on the home page. Happy Holidays to all you animaniacs – morphers, mixers and warpers alike. Life is Suite!
Chris Pirillo, friend of Morpheus and well-known blogger of lockergnome fame (a CNET top-100 blog), clued us in to this recent post where he muses on marriage and offspring. Chris writes: Instead of waxing pathetic about the whole â€œmarriage is the blending of two livesâ€ story, I thought Iâ€™d simply illustrate it for you in animated form. We in turn took a screen-grab of a frame somewhere in the middle – to give you the mix of the morph, so to speak…
