    Very cool stuff, this should work beautifully for motion graphics. Thanks for your work.

    Thank You all for nice comments.

    Well basically it will take advantage of cell fracture, shape keys and particles system. Though currently I am implementing a little bit more flexible way of using shape keys. I am also going to include two morphing algorithms. One that I used in preview 1 is just splitting objects into faces and finding closest ones. Another one is going to be based on matching objects topology. I have general idea but haven't found time to implement it yet.

    Everything will be made as an Add-On (python), so it won't be very efficient, but I think it will simplify making some effects and make some new possibilities.

    I will try to explain everything when everything will be finished, because maybe I will have to change my approches a few times.

    Ah, thanks. And cool... I thought the cell-fragmentation was part of forehand preparation.
