In this paper, we present a novel method to solve the inter-frame interpolation problem in image morphing. We use our improved snake model that is associated with the gravitational force field to locate control points in the object contours. Afterwards, we apply the greedy algorithm in free-form deformations to achieve optimal warps among feature point pairs in starting and ending frames. The new method uses an energy-minimization function under the influence of inter-frames. The energy serves to impose frame-wise and curve-wise constraints among the interpolated frames.
