#### Morphing shapes

We have to morph shapes into one another. Although this may seem like a hard task it's actually as simple as moving an object from point A to point B. We'll move the three points of a first curve (start, control and end points) to the corresponding locations in a second curve. Let's start with a simple example morphing a C shape into a J. Create a new movie and add this script to the first frame:

```//Create movie clip and mask
counter = -1;
_root.createEmptyMovieClip('line', 0);
animInt = setInterval(doAnim, 17);
animDir = 1;

function doAnim()
{
var currMC = _root.line;
var time = animIndex/60;
var dist = time;
with(currMC)
{
//Coords for the C shape: (150, 25), (25,100), (150,175)
//Coords for the J shape: (150, 25), (125,200), (50,125)
clear();
lineStyle(0x000000);
moveTo(150,25);
curveTo(25+100*dist,100+100*dist,150-100*dist, 175-50*dist);
}

animIndex += animDir;
if(animIndex >= 60)
{
animDir = -1
}
if(animIndex <= 0)
{
animDir = 1
}
}
```

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
