yep, you can create the attribute goalU and goalV in the PP attributes (from general), and apply to them an expression like
goalU=rand(0,1);
goalV=rand(0,1);

and that's it!

Is it possible to be able to fill the volume of the shape instead of the outline.

thanks

Default Could It also fill the object?

Hey there!
I'm trying to make them fill the objet, they are morphing to, but I can' find a way to do so.

Do you have any Ideas?
