In NetMorph you are working at a much higher level. I suppose you might
create copies of the morph to be manipulated and migrate them out to the
clients and possibly each client might push a dummy morph back to the
server so they can centralise user input. It might even be as simple as
each client migrating a morph to the next, which the client still
controls. Close the loop and you have continuous updates. Experiment :-)

I have had NetMorph running here. The migrating of a morph between
images is not instantaneous but once it is then remote calls should be
quick enough.

I know that feeling :-)

Good luck!
