I am making one animation, where i have shape layer and then i need to looks like that shape was full of water. Water will then drain out of the shape and make something new. Is that posible? Sory for bad english.

You can do this by animating a Mask Path.

Make a Solid of blue color and then create a shape of water spill using Pen Tool. And then animate the Mask Path parameter to the desired shape.


Go through these links:

If the morphing is between complex shapes then you can go for Reshape effect.

See the tutorial:

You could use a mask then apply a Displacement Map to it, then animating the mask path.

Markus Gustafsson shows an example how to do this in this technique here: http://reels.creativecow.net/film/markus-gustafsson-be-water-part-2
