Popims Animator: The Right Tool for the Job?

Manual is better, but still not perfect

One of the drawbacks of the help feature is that it is sort of hit-or-miss with the information it gives. The manual alignment tool is mentioned in a pithy sentence containing a hotlink that activates the tool. The problem is that the icon and/or function required to access the tool are not given anywhere that I could find. I have you covered, though. It's found under "Frame -> Align to previous...". You can also simply press Ctrl-A.

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. :)
