Advertisements claim that Fantavision is a revolutionary software breakthrough that, for the first time, brings to home computers the special powers known to computer animators as "tweening" and "transforming". It allows the user to create short vector graphics animations frame-by-frame using a mouse, keyboard, or other device. The software then uses a primitive morphing technology to generate frames in-between the user-created frames, allowing complex animations to be created without the requirement that every frame be drawn by the user. Because this is done in real-time, it allows for creative exploration and quick changes.
