Morphing a object on screen


Just trying to morph one object to another, however the original object remains on screen at the end of the morph. I have ticked the clear item box, but this doesn't seem to work? Not sure where i'm going wrong on this? 


1) What type of objects are you trying to morph?  Morphing works best with SVG images and may not work with text.

2) Have you tried deleting and re-adding both images and then re applying the morph?

3) Also, if you zoom out at the end, you will see that all elements will reappear at the end of a scribe.

4) You can save your scribe online and tell support the name of it if you want more specific help.

Thanks for your help Mike, 

The images are from the Video scribe  library. I have tried deleting both images and re-doing but the same thing happens - both images remain on the canvas at the end of the scribe.(the first one should disappear?) The camera is in a fixed position and the scribe at the end does not zoom out at the end. 

Hi Charles,

Please save your scribe to the cloud, open up a ticket here and we'll be happy to have a look at it for you.

Let us know which images are having the problem and we'll test them out for you.

We look forward to hearing from you.

I can't edit my post to clarify this, but you will want to disable the "zoom at end" feature if you want to prevent zooming out at the end.

How to disable zoom-at-end.

I am having the exact same problem.  I've ticked the box. I'm using svg files. I've reimported the files twice and i am not zooming out at the end.  I can't seem to get it to work properly no matter how many times I redo it. Help!!

Yes, the morph images will reappear but only after the scribe has finished playing and you are back in 'edit mode'. They will not re-appear when you render the scribe as a video file.

Ohhhhhhhh. Thanks Matthew! I was thinking (incorrectly) that the cleared morph images reappeared in the published video. I'm going to delete my previous reply to Lynn since I cannot edit it.

Lynn, As Matthew explained, you should only be seeing cleared morph images reappear after you finish "previewing" your project when videoscribe returns to "edit mode". You should not see the same symptom when you publish a video to youtube, facebook or, or when you render a video file to your hard drive.

If you think that your problem is something different, it may be helpful to publish the project to youtube and provide a youtube link to your video showing the problem.

I am having the exact same problem.  I have uploaded my SVG file 3 times, tried deleting and readding, and resetting the morph.  I've turned off the zoom at the end.  I have a total of 8 images morphing into one another to animate a beach umbrella tumbling...needless to say, it works for the first 5 images and not for the last 3.  I wind up with 4 images staying on the screen.  Very frustrated!


Hi Kathleen,

I will paste my reply to your support ticket as it may be useful for others who experience the same issue.

It seems as though you have not selected the last umbrella image for the later morphs so it is morphing from an earlier version of the image. In the 'Morph from' section, you can just about make out some small circles, these mean that you need to scroll across to find the last image. In the screenshot below, I have selected the 7th image and opened it's properties. In the 'Morph from' options, only the first 5 are shown in that view. I need to morph from the 6th image and to find it, I need to scroll across or click the right hand small round circle that is shown in the screenshot.


I have raised this with our design team as I think it is not clear that there are more images to choose from when selecting an image to morph from.
