The trick is to create masks that you can program to change to composite the images together in a loop to create an animation. see my scripts, fxtransitions and transitions at the link below. Sorry I only know shell scripting of the command line. I do not know any API.

For the command line, see Anthony's examples of Colour and Resize Morphing at:
http://www.imagemagick.org/Usage/anim_mods/#morph

For the MagickWand API, see http://www.imagemagick.org/api/magick-i ... orphImages
