Sequence Controls Window
This is dialog contains all of the tools the user will need to set the output parameters of a morph sequence. This includes morph length, resolution, and file type. Below is a brief description of each of the controls in the Sequence Controls dialog.
The total number of frames in the morph. The film strip is also this number of frames in length.
Begin Frame #:
This is the frame number where morphing will begin for a sequence generation.
Finish Frame #:
This is the frame number where morphing will finish for a sequence generation.
Current Frame #:
When 'Do one Frame' is selected, this is the frame that will be created. For example, if you set total frames to 15. A current frame of seven will generate the middle frame, half way between the Start and End frames. If you then set Begin Frame to 1 and Finish Frame to 15, all the frames of the morph animation will be generated.
Use Anti-Aliasing method:
Anti-aliasing affects the spacial (or position) accuracy of the morph result in distances less than one pixel width. Have this switched on for the best quality result, or switched off for slightly faster operation.
When a morph frame is generated, this switch tells the program to automatically save the resulting image. You must have this selected to save to an Animator FLIC animation, because each frame needs to be saved as it is created.
The file name that will be used when the morph result is automatically saved.
This opens a file requester to locate a valid path, file name, and output format for the output file. When saving to an Animator FLIC animation this file name will be used directly. Otherwise, the last four characters of the file name (before the extension) will be replaced with the frame number (0001 to 9999).
C:\ IMAGES\ MYIMAGE.TIF will be changed to
C:\ IMAGES\ MYIM0007.TIF for frame seven.
This is the resolution of the morph results created. It is the main determinate of the output quality. The film strip resolution is not the same as this size; however, the filmstrip quality can never be better than the output resolution.
320 x 200 is a low resolution VGA output,
640 x 480 is a high resolution VGA,
768 x 482 is about home video resolution (NTSC).
768 x 512 is about home video resolution (PAL).
Match Start Aspect Ratio
Matches the output size to the ratio of dimensions of the Start Frame.
Match End Aspect Ratio
Matches the output size to the ratio of dimensions of the End Frame.
Set to Start Frame size
Matches the output size to the exact dimensions of the Start Frame.
Set to End Frame size
Matches the output size to the exact dimensions of the End Frame.
