I was thinking about that, its growing in circle shape, for blend shape you need 2 object, so blend shapes turn the first object to the second shape,

still I am thinking how, any idea? something simple and easy, I have 20 arrows need to be animated, if I get the first one the rest will be duplicated,

thanks

share your idea
