How to create the effect in this animated GIF of morphing faces?
I saw an amazing animated gif
And I thought I should give it a go.
I tried laying out several friends' pictures in movie maker and power director and though I sort of have a video where it is animated up to an extent, it is not as fluid, it feels more like a slideshow no matter how much I tweak the time/tween.
I thought, may be I need to fine control it and opened up Photoshop and added layer mask to go from image to image...though this is a lot better, I still don't have this fluidity.
I am not sure this is the right place to ask this question, but do any of you know how this method can be achieved? I think it's a great pic!
This has very little to do with GIFs.
Firstly you need to create the face-morph effect. There are apps that do it for you but it isn't a one-click process.
Secondly ther is a transition effect to blend between stages. It includes tiles, waves and a gradient mask.
Either way, this video (which it was at one point) isn't an easy process if video editing is not your field.
Final step, converting to gif: This can be done by most professional video editing programs, but you can also find online converters. Google will help with that.
