Let’s get started.

Step 1: First of all open Adobe Efter Effects and create a New Composition. Rename it to Morph Shapes or whatever name you like. Set the resolution to 1920×1080 Pixels. Frame rate to 30 frames per second and set the duration to 10 seconds.

Step 2: Go to the Toolbar and Select the rectangle tool. Hold the Shift+Alt on the keyboard and draw a square, Center the anchor point then Align the Square shape to the center. Rename the shape to a square.
Then under the rectangle 1 > Right-click on Rectangle Path 1 > And Convert To Bezier Path. Under path 1 > Add a keyframe.

Step 3: We have to make 2 or 3 more shapes. Go to the toolbar and Select the Ellipse tool. Then change the fill color to any color you want. Then draw a circle by holding the Shift+Alt Keys on the keyboard. Then align it to the center, and rename it to the circle. Under the ellipse 1 > Then under the Ellipse Path 1 > Convert to bezier Path. Go under path 1 > Add a Keyframe. Drag the circle just below to the square shape.

Step 4: Select all layers and Press U on the keyboard to reveal all keyframes. Select the Square path Keyframe. Press control + C to copy it. Go to 1 second on a timeline and then Paste it.

Step 5: Copy the circle path keyframe. Go to about 2 seconds on a timeline, select the Square path and paste it. Select the move tool. Then drag the circle here. Now, copy the keyframe, Go to about 3 Seconds, and paste it. Select the circle shape and delete it. We don’t need it.
