Karl, atm I'm working on the original webcam morph in a 4.2 image. After 
doing changes to accommodate the TransformationMorph I then discover 
that the ImageMorph's "isOpaque" defaults to false. Setting to true gets 
me good snapshots (and in my case also remembering to set table layout 
on my holder lets me see the actual results, doh). I don't know if any 
of this is related to your problems but I'll get all this reloaded into 
a recent etoys image in the next few days and see how it compares to 
what you have.

>> The viewer category should simply be named "camera", not "camera settings".
>> Not sure about the "last frame" tile. Do we need that? If so we should find a nicer name. In any case the help balloon should not mention "morph". In Etoys we generally do not distinguish between the player and its costume. (idea: maybe a copy of the camera should just return a sketch)
>> And we should make a test release for others to try this, soonish.
