SVG morphing between very simple shapes

Warning: Please note

OK.. so If we need to animate a very simple shape, a vesica pisces, into simple circle.. .. Can GSAP handle that, or must we use something like SnapSVG.js?      


Specifically, I need to animate this shape into a perfect circle.  (a solid shape with a fill, no stroke.)  

(They both have the same number of points.)





Maybe a shape morphing plugin is in the works?   MorphSVG?



Thanks !

Hi HaunGo :)


already there isn't a GSAP official Plugin for SVG path morphing , but you can use snap.svg and control progress of a Snapsvg tweens with GSAP to use in GSAP Timelines or whatever .


pls check this post for more info : http://greensock.com/forums/topic/11381-tween-path-with-same-number-of-points-to-different-shape/

I have never personally used that plugin but I have heard nothing but great things about CJ (the author) and he's definitely a sharp guy. Both the author of SnapSVG and that GSAP plugin work at Adobe who tends to hire very solid developers :) I'd encourage you to give it a shot and let us know how it goes.

Wouldn't tweening the border-radius work for a simple shape like that?  I'm very new to GSAP but this seems to work okay:
