    Morphing Effect needed for 25 minute short movie. I can send you more details, if you are interested.

    The scene:
    guy is talking, while he is talking his face morphes to the face of a woman. We can do a little break (for example, guy stops talking, to put the morph effect in, then talks as a woman with woman voice)

    better would be to morph while talking, if it is possible.

    I can shot like this:

    1st shot:
    Person A, background all green.
    Same camera, same light. Just the background.

    2nd shot: Camera same like 1st shot, everything same, different location. Face Position etc same.
    Person B, background all green.
    Same camera, same light, just the background.

    Then – first the face morphes, then the person (face)

    I am financing the movie myself,so, I can not give you much, but we have great actors and it will be promotion for you.

    Thank you.

    I found the most important when doing morphed lip-synch is to make sure you are well aligned each time someone starts talking (you can drift after a bit).

    You can follow up with techsupport of course if you have specific questions

    If you can overcrank the footage when you shoot you will have more frames to play with if you need to compress or expand time to have the lips line up – not everyone talks at the same rate.
    You wouldn’t use the footage in its slow mo state but as a precomp and any time warping done in the outer comp, AE will pluck the frames it needs from the inner comp even if they are technically “between” frames in the outer comp.
    When you bring the footage in interpret the frame rate at the frame rate of your film. Then time warp the footage in timeline to be the right length, precompose the layer keeping effects etc in the current comp.
    Do the same with the B roll and then line up the two clips up in time, sliding the keyframes of the time warp or enable time remapping to get the timing just right at every lip syncing step along the way.
    Then play with your morph.
