Shape blending, the metamorphosis of one shape into another, is a central problem in two-dimensional computer animation. In spite of impressive uses of morphing in film and video productions, the problem is far from solved. In particular, shape blending still requires considerable manual effort. By decomposing two polygons into equivalent star-shaped pieces and a connecting skeleton, the paper presents a blending method which can represent polygon interiors, not just boundaries, and generate high-quality results with minimal user intervention
