Morphing problem

Hi all
Another day another problem. Today with morphing. I want to make some smoke on my cartoon, but my morphing doesnt work correctly. I added hint poits, and i didn`t help neither. So there is a short movie, showing a problem, and to screens with my hint points. What s wrong? I did everything like in tutorial.

Try adding some hints in the middle of each curve since that is where your problem area is.

Sometimes I also find it is better to fill the area after morphing.

Now its even worse. It s looks like the curving moves by 2 ahead. I think my hints r placed correct. What more can i do?

It looks like the software ignore my hints, and do it its way…

up up up! :smiley:

Well when I take a look at the hints pictures, I can see a couple of areas that I would probably identify as problem areas. For example, where the 1 and 2 is, on one drawing, the 1 and 2 are right next to each other, and on the other drawing the 1 and 2 are quite far apart.

Same thing with 19 20 21 22.

It helps when the number of strokes is the same from one drawing to another. You can try to flatten them as well.

Sometimes I find that it can take more time trying to finesse a morph than it does if you simply convert that morphing to drawings and then clean up the drawings. For something like this it might be faster to draw it frame by frame.
