I want to morph a picture of a camera in after effects so that it moves up very quickly turning into a black ball that rotates towards the left in a circular motion and morphs into another picture. How do I go about doing this. Both pictures are PNGs. This is my camera that I want to morph into the black ball
There are some 3rd party plug-in's like Reflex that may help. With a transition this extreme I'd probably use AE's distortion tools and create a transition. Maybe spin the camera, distort it, transition to a spinning distorted ball and then remove the distortion.
If the images were vector graphics created in Illustrator you could use blend tools to create a morph. If you have the skills to turn your images into illustrator files then this might be an option. Let us know and I can post a link to a tutorial I did a zillioin years ago using this technique.
Thanks I'll look into this and the link would be helpful thanks
