    Gil had this comment on his changes for Morph "Since Dan already laid the ground work for effect backgrounds
    I was able to code up the Morph in about 10 minutes. I'm currently not handling when they clip on the
    window edges so I'm try to fix that and then check it in. Most of these I used white for the head except
    for 2 in the middle you can see the head color transition."

    I have included a picture Gil did showing how his morph effect now displays in the sequencer grid.

    Actually I fixed the clipping issues before I got it checked in. Here's a 30 second video showing some morphs I dropped onto my display to give an idea of how to use them on arches and some of the shapes you can create and how to have multiple morphs occurring on the same model concurrently. With the new rendering you can see where the head of the morph ends related to time which greatly helps with knowing when the head of the morph will hit the ground if you're synchronizing to beats.
