Normally, the easiest way to work around this problem is to perform the
process in reverse.  I.e. for every coordinate in the output frame, do the
inverse mapping to find the coordinate in the input frame, and, using
interpolation, calculate the value.

If you are interested, I have code available that does all sorts of warping,
or you can take a look at scipy's ndimage.map_coordinates.
