Even if you never read an Animorphs book or watched the Nickelodeon TV show, chances are you've seen at least one of the trippy book covers. And using Elastic Reality software from 1994, we can make our own!

  • I love Animorphs. Finally got to read them all via e-book tech but I used to order them thru Scholastic and school book fairs! Rad concept, always wished I too had the power to acquire and become any DNA-based creature. I love the story and the characters too! PROTIP: THOSE NEW COVER DESIGNS ARE GARBAGE! WHY DID THAT HAVE TO BE THE PUNCTUATION ON THIS VID?

  • I was brought here by Toy Galaxy's video on Animorphs. Animorphs never appealed to me but you and Mr. Larson ame everything interesting. And now, the next logical step is to watch RedLetterMedia's Best of the Worst episode #7 where they watch... Shapeshifters (which will remind me of LGR, because FARTS).

  • I used Elastic Reality for the Federal Government to do the morph from the twin towers to the rubble in the footage we released to the media. I'd like to explain more but there are two men in black suits and mirror shades at the door. I'll just go and see what they want and then come back to explain the conspiracy.

  • Oh man, I remember the woman's headshot in the demo files very well :) I enjoyed ASDG's Morph plus and Art Dept Pro right around that time. Another great Amiga app that paid the rent for awhile was Cinemorph (i recall it was a simpler project setup and faster rendering). Thanks to Michael Jackson's Blank or White video to make morphing a hot topic for a few years.

  • How Elastic Reality was used for the Animorphs covers reminds me of how the did the voice of GLaDOS in Portal: they used a computer to generate the voice initially, then had a voice actor imitate the computer's output while fixing some words that didn't come out correctly.

  • The last scene was probably filmed on a glasses camera during an LGR thrifts. It's likely that he took them off and just moved them closer to the book, but I'd like to think that he is so dedicated to the craft that he put the book right up to his face.

  • Okay, I grew up with a game called Knowledge Adventure: Aviation Adventure. It was an activity program with lots of stuff to do. One activity was a quiz. I forget exactly what the rules were, but there were five rounds of multiple choice questions based on aviation history. If you successfully completed the quiz you were treated to a special video. The video started with an old plane, then it "morphed" into a slightly newer one using technology very similar to Elastic Reality. Anyway, the video showed one plane morphing into another, and then another, and another, cycling through something like 15 planes, starting as a super primitive plane until it finally morphed into an F-117 Nighthawk.
