Shape flips weirdly when I morph it
on Jan 23, 2017 at 8:56:06 am

I'm trying to animate a play button that splits into six sound bars. But when I try to morph it, the different shapes flips before it ends up as sound bars. I only want them to split. I've got some images attached in case you didn't understand what I mean.




The weird flipping occurs here.

How did you make it?

I made them both in Illustrator. Then I copied them over and pasted them in as masks on a solid layer.

What's happenign to the masks when you step through the animation frame-by-frame? You may learn a lot.

If you're still stumped, you might have better luck making shape layers out of them rather than masks on a solid. It may be easier to control the animation.
