    Morphing between shapes in notoriously difficult:

    • The number of contours have to match, otherwise the system needs to create new contours from scratch or delete them.
    • The starting point and direction of each contour needs to match, otherwise the morph is very ugly.

    If you're okay with these restrictions, I've written code for NodeBox 1 that does this, called Fatpath:

    I don't have time right now to convert it to a node, unfortunately.
