I feel like this is kind of a stupid question. So, I pulled up the

 and I wanted to see if it works with a polygon element. So I gave it a test and obviously it doesn't.


My question is 1 why? and 2 is this a plan to extend this plugin to add polygon support in the future?

Nah, not a "stupid" question at all. It wouldn't work because MotionPathHelper is supposed to let you add points, make them curvy, pull control points, etc. (total flexibility) which would all be impossible with a <polygon>. 


It's super easy to solve, though - just use MotionPathPlugin.convertToPath()!

Does that clear things up?
