I have Power Goo (have to re-install it, got tired of having to have the CD
in the drive to run it) and also Photoshop, and also Morph, which might be
the way to go also. Morph is neato.

Let me know if I can help. Email the pict to me here and perhaps CC a copy
of the file to me at KR2S@.... and let me know how many frames you need
if different from the below.

This being if you don't have a source yet. Might want to get work back from
a couple people to see how it all looks, and take the cream of the airbag.

For general competence varification if desired, you can look to
and or http://home.earthlink.net/~kitairbldr (site I did, if it still exists)


PS Goo is not worth buying in my opinion because it requires 20 megabytes
free disk space just to start up, and worst, the CD must be in the drive
for it to run. MetaCreations is now ruining my favorite companies, Specular
and Fractal Design. ;( Bummers. (imho)
