Popims Animator: The Right Tool for the Job?

SmartMorph is now Popims Animator

by Kirk Starr

SmartMorph, a freeware morphing program by Meesoft, has been wildly upgraded and has even garnered a shiny new name. It would seem that Meesoft has teamed up with Popims to create a better version of Popims Animator. I'll take a hard look at this piece of freeware and compare it to the version from which it supposedly evolved.

Another possible title for this article could be: Is Popims Animator Really an Upgrade for SmartMorph?

Please note that Popims Animator is PC-only, so if you are solely a Mac user, then you may want to just move along to the next bit of reading on your list.

Read a concise summary of Popim Animator's strengths and weaknesses in this blog post.

Well looks like Popims is not the way to go... Is SmartMorph the BEST free morpher out there? How about if you were willing to pay - say up to $50 when what should be best?

PC-only?! Can't be much of a design program then. ;-) (Great review, Kirk!)

Well Jay, you are right though it's been pointed out to me that lotsa Mac users 'round here run Windows using Boot Camp. To those people I say: find a different morphing program. Even if you can use this, you really don't want to. Blech.

Apparently you don't realize that most of the Mac users on this sit, run Windows under Boot Camp.

I hadn't thought of that, thanks. Most of the Mac users I know personally have no desire to run Windows at all. :)
