Image Morphing versus 3D Morphing


Image morphing, the construction of an image sequence depicting a gradual transition between two images, has been extensively investigated [21] [2] [6] [16]. For images generated from 3D models, there is an alternative to morphing the images themselves: 3D morphing generates intermediate 3D models, the morphs, directly from the given models; the morphs are then rendered to produce an image sequence depicting the transformation. 3D morphing overcomes the following shortcomings of 2D morphing as applied to images generated from 3D models:
