Morphing Page Transition

A simple morphing page transition effect where an SVG path gets morphed into another while the current page moves up.

Whilst the intro/splash screen is translated vertically over a distance of 200vh the shaped in the SVG at the bottom grows from a few pixels in height to 100vh, creating the gooey effect.

<div class="content content--intro">
	<div class="content__inner">
		<!-- ... -->
	<div class="shape-wrap">
		<svg class="shape" width="100%" height="100vh" preserveAspectRatio="none" viewBox="0 0 1440 800" xmlns:pathdata="">
				d="M -44,-50 C -52.71,28.52 15.86,8.186 184,14.69 383.3,22.39 462.5,12.58 638,14 835.5,15.6 987,6.4 1194,13.86 1661,30.68 1652,-36.74 1582,-140.1 1512,-243.5 15.88,-589.5 -44,-50 Z" 
				pathdata:id="M -44,-50 C -137.1,117.4 67.86,445.5 236,452 435.3,459.7 500.5,242.6 676,244 873.5,245.6 957,522.4 1154,594 1593,753.7 1793,226.3 1582,-126 1371,-478.3 219.8,-524.2 -44,-50 Z">
</div><!-- /content--intro -->

<div class="content content--fixed">
	<div class="content__inner">
		<!-- ... -->
</div><!-- /content--fixed -->

The SVG path data is morphed using a CSS animation, as both paths contain the same amount of points.

Did you know it’s possible to change SVG path data with only a tad of CSS?
