Managing zIndex (rendering order) when morphing

Recommended Posts

In this case I want blue circle to come on top of the orange square when the morphing has happened. This is a part of a bigger animation timeline which I am trying to create ?


How can I control rendering order, as I belive the first svg takes presidence when morphing to other shape ?

There's no such thing as zIndex for SVG.  Things always render in the order they occur in the DOM, so you literally need to alter the DOM to make the stacking order different. Here's a demo where I flip the order mid-tween:

Does that help?
