Popims Animator: The Right Tool for the Job?

AVI Is clearly NOT the way to go

If you want to produce a quality .avi file, you'll need to experiment with the codec choices. Shown above is the result from Popims Animator's default export to .avi format. Not pretty.

You can select your codec from an extensive drop-down menu after naming your file and clicking Save. I found the Microsoft MPEG-4 Video Codec V-2 worked quite well for most of the PC video players I tried it on.

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. :)
