In computer graphics and imaging, a means by which one image is gradually (or quickly) changed into another by means of animation. Essentially, morphing operates on the same principle as typical animation: the two images (the "before" and the "after") are considered as key frames, and the computer performs the in-betweening in very small incrrements, so the shape and color of the first image seamlessly turns into those of the second image. The first popular example of this was in Michael Jackson's video for the song "Black and White," but by now it has become very commonplace, especially in science fiction and horror movies.
