    I'd never thought of that before, but now you've got me wishing they would do one. Probably be a likeness rights minefield though.

    Thank you for the kind words. I used current pictures of Sid and Faith Salie, and it was actually the book cover that made me want to make it in the first place...I didn't like the 'slap a beard on an old photo of Sid' approach at all. (Although I understand their hands are tied; they can't just use any pic they'd like, the way a fan art can.)

    FYI, It's actually an ad for classic Trek airing on the Sci-Fi channel.

    On the constitution, a young James Kirk catches the eye of a young Carol Marcus. Or whatever

    ^I must ask: is that Shatner, Pine or a combination? I cannot tell for sure.

    It appears to be a combination of both.

    It's Pine's face on Shatner's body from "Where No Man Has Gone before" placed over Decker's ship from "Doomsday Machine".

    Not *entirely* Pine's face; there are elements there that are clearly Shatner. Well done!

    His brown eyes, for example. Remember the end of days that was to come because Chris Pine has blue eyes?

    Yeah it's a morph between Shatner and Pine, although I had to change his eye colour a few times as it would keep coming out grey

    Really great morph, Pickirk. :bolian: Very convincing combination, a little more Pine but just enough Kirk to work. What software did you use for it?

    Squirlz Morph. It's easy to use and best of all, it's Free!!

    I also used it on the 'Spock yearbook photo', combining Quinto with Nimoy's Spock from The cage

    Initially thinking that you might have spent hours taking segments of faces and blending them together individually, it seemed a bit daunting to me. Glad to hear it is indeed a software package that helps you do it. :) Thanks for letting us know about Sqirlz Morph. I've seen some examples posted on YouTube (morph animations) and some of them are mind blowing!

    ^Pike looks like he's enjoying it! "A moment's pleasure; a lifetime of pain." [kinda like my ex]

    I don't know why, but I am consistently unable to see any of the images that Shaw posts. They sound so good!

    ^ I remember that one! :D


    That sort of thing has happened once or twice before with images posted by Shaw, but only for certain people. I don't recall whether we ever identified a cause.
