Morphing one path to another
on Sep 19, 2018 at 7:26:20 pm

I have created a path using createPath([..],[],[]); in the expression, but when I want to morph that path into some other path by creating one keyframe, and then pasting another path at another time, the first path disappears and all I have is the second path that I pasted. I want it to morph from one path to another. How can I do that?
Thank you in advance.

If you define a path with an expression, that's going to override what's going on with the keyframes. Maybe get rid of the expression and do it with just keyframes? Otherwise, I think your expression would need the parameters for both the paths and you'd have to come up with your own logic to morph the arrays for the first path to those of the second path.

Thanks Dan, I actually solved this using a script, what I would do is set the path value in a script, so If I choose to change it later I'd just do setValueAtTime() for the path property, that morphs the path.
