Any two objects A and B can be viewed as two different projections of their Cartesian product A×B. Rotating and projecting A×B results in a continuous transformation of A into B. During certain rotations, the contour of the Cartesian product remains the same although its projection changes. Based on these properties, we derive a fast and simple morphing algorithm without topological constraints on either object.
