Methods for Volume Metamorphosis

M. Chen, M. W. Jones and P. Townsend


The problem of creating a sequence of inbetween volumes smoothly transforming from one given volume to another is referred to as volume metamorphosis or volume morphing. Several methods that provide the solution to the problem are described and compared in this paper. Tests have shown that some of these methods are capable of produce good quality metamorphosis within an acceptable time.
