** Cage Travolta Faceoff
Some of you may remember John Woo's 1997 thriller Face/Off with Nicolas Cage and John Travolta. The tagline was In order to catch him, he must become him. Well, here's a little homage to that imperfect piece of cinema with perfect casting...

** Chris Pirillo’s Morphin’ Imagination
Chris Pirillo, friend of Morpheus and well-known blogger of lockergnome fame, clued us in to this recent post where he muses on marriage and offspring. Chris writes: Instead of waxing pathetic about the whole "marriage is the blending of two lives" story, I thought I'd simply illustrate it for you in animated form.....

Tips and Tricks for the Morphing Mind

Tip of the Month - Capturing Video of Morphs on My Website
Q: I've developed a great website that includes several of my coolest morph masterpieces. I would like to capture the webpage and convert it to a video. I know this can be done. Do you have any recommendations that would work best? - H. Logan, Philadephia, PA

A: This is a common task that many Morpheus users request answers for. By far, the most elegant and easy to use tool to capture a website screen and converting it to a video file is My Screen Recorder by Deskshare software. Within seconds of installing My Screen Recorder, you should be able to easily launch and immediately capture your webpage, with your animated Morph in display, to a video file. My Screen Recorder will also let you capture the entire desktop, windows, menus, cursors and even video playing on your webpage. You can also save to a variety of formats. A full trial version is available for download and we've asked the publisher to give all readers an exclusive discount of 25%. Download My Screen Recorder

How Do I Save As a Compressed AVI?
I seem to be having trouble saving in a file format that I can load into other programs. The "Save as Menu" always comes up as a Flash save, but I need it to Save as a Compressed AVI. What do I need to do?

I need a Lines and Dots Tutorial
"I am a very new to morphing. I had seen a morph once in someone's home video and I wanted to duplicate it. It was similar to the sample "morph-pro-grades". The tutorial isn't helping me. Could you please be so kind as to post a step-by-step tutorial for dummies, especially everything from loading the pics to dots and lines?"

Photo Morpher Preview won't Play
After upgrading an expired trial version of Morpeus Photo Morpher to the full version, I am having problems with preview, as it won't play unless if I manually drag the handle. Do I need to fix something in my registry or run a registry cleaner?
