Any suggestions on how I might be able to animate a straight line to a circle, back to a straight line?
Preferably with a Sweep Spline.

Now the problem is, I need the circle to be produced from a straight line, from the center of the straight line, so as if the straight line is splitting in half at the center to make a circle.

Any ideas?

with enough subdivisions in your straight spline you can just apply a Bend deformer to turn it into a circle and that can still be used to sweep along

Thanks for your help. I was able to finally achieve what I was looking for by creating 2 half-circles with a MoSpline, and Spline.... little complicated to explain, so if anyone is interested, I've attached my file!
