10-09-2000, 08:20 PM
I am trying to take images I have in bmp form & enlargen them & shrink them in my movies. When I try to enlargen them, it makes copies of it.
It would be very useful to have images increase/decrease in size in a fluid like fashion or at least morph. Is there a way I can do this?

The behavior is correct.

Kool Moves does not alter raster images (BMP, JPG, PNG, GIF, ETC).

When you try to scale it tiles the BMP.

Either trace your BMP or vectorize it and import it as a WMF.

WMF will scale there are several threads in this forum on conversion.

The other option-besides vectorization is to scale your bitmap in an Image manipulation program then resave and import. A note here- make sure you use a image manipulation program that has ant-alising functions. Otherwise your image will look like Dog-Poo.

What would you prescribe as a good wmf software to use?
I know I've got some program on my pc that can save images as wmf, but can't find it right now.
Anything cheap & easy?

Star Draw- Its free.

The program you have on your computer is probably creates flat WMF's you need one that will create vector WMF's.

Trace2k and Star Draw will both do that and are free (Trace 2k is not very good though).

Metafile companion will create WMF ($30) but will not convert raster to vector. KVEC ($30)claims to vectorize and convert.

Streamline, Photoshop-Illustrator, Corel Draw will also vectorize but are a little more expensive.
