Enclosed: DOOMMORF.FLI - The animation - 641,336 bytes
README.TXT - Yer looking at it.
AAPLAY.EXE - Run this program to load/display the animation.
If you run it w/o the .fli name, you can control
the frame rate and all sorts of fun things.
Well, my efforts have paid off... DOOMMORF.FLI looks *nice*. This .FLI
file is a ~160 frame animation of your favorite monsters melting into each
other using morphing technology a la "Terminator 2". Ok, so I'm not Industrial
Light and Magic Inc., but I think that the effect is very good considering all
the 'tween images were rendered on a 486dx-50 using DMORF 1.1.2; the BEST
shareware morphing program available for the PC. I used WT100 to get the
images from the .WAD file onto the screen. I used VGACAP81 to capture them
from the screen, and VGAFIL.EXE to convert them from .RAWs and .PLTs to .GIFs.
After morphing, I used Alchemy to convert the images from .TGAs back to .GIFs,
and Autodesk Animator to thread the images into a single .FLI, and optimize
the colors such that the morph should be fairly smooth, even on '286 computers.
Of course, if you use a '286, you probably won't recognize the characters. 🙂
I know that not ALL of the transitions are smooth, and a close scrutiny
will reveal a few flaws. I noticed many of them myself, but I just don't
give a flying rat's ass at this point. If you like it, enjoy. If not, then
make a better morph.
