Transition one object to another using bubbles?

Wonder if anyone can see an easy way to do this?

The picture demonstrates what I'm trying to achieve. The number 7 which is composed of bubbles turns into the American continent, by the individual bubbles rearranging themselves.



Apart from keyframing each bubble, is there an elegant way to do this?

Eventually I'll have to turn the phrase '7 million' into the entire world (looking forward to this).

Thanks for any suggestions.

Do you have the Particular plug-in, by any chance? That can get you to something like this.

The name of the plug-in is "Particular." It generates "particles" (which could be your bubbles) and it can use a layer as the shape that emits the particles.

It is the first thing that came to mind. There are doubtless other ways to achieve the effect.

After effects can only fake this kind of transition. Theres no way you can "store" two particles' position in time. You can only do that kind of animation by hand.

AE does many things being a compositor, but for that you'll need a more robust application like Cinema 4d and etc., but you have to know your way around those. It's not very straightfoward.
