We present a new approach to shape transformation for animation based on the bounded blending in higher dimension. It results in a smooth transformation (metamorphosis and non-linear motion) between two functionally defined 2D and 3D shapes as it is illustrated below

Transformation of a disk to a square

Transformation of a ring to a cross

Transformation of a Buddha shape to a Chinese character

Transformation of 3D ROBOT letters to a robot shape
