Review: FaceFilm morphs face photos for GIF, slideshow, movie, and music video makers

Watch one face melt into another with this clever visual tool.

FaceFilm lets you select two different pictures with faces, and then it creates a short clip of one face blending into the other and then back again. These clips are fun to make and share, and they can be broken down into a series of still photos, as well. You can also choose to save or export them to a variety of different sources.

FaceFilm has a streamlined and attractive interface. The screen is oriented horizontally, with three boxes containing faces strung across it. Basic instructions are available by tapping the FaceFilm logo at the bottom of the screen. You can use some of the faces already loaded into the app, or you can choose your own pictures to morph. If you want to use your own photos, you'll have to map each image by positioning the points of an overlay that the program generates. It can take a few tries to get the hang of this mapping, as the interface for it is a little clunky. Once your faces are loaded and mapped once, though, they'll be available from the Face Gallery. If you want to use more than two faces, the storyboard feature lets you select up to ten faces that will shift from one to the next to the next when you play it. You can even add theme music from your iTunes account to go along with the show.

It can take a little poking around to locate all of the fun features this app offers. You can also choose to upgrade to a pro account for $3.99 to unlock unlimited new face additions, unwatermarked final products, and animal faces. FaceFilm can be a lot of fun to play around with, runs well, and is free to try.
