Graph morphing patches/externals?

Is something like Oli Larkin’s int.lib what you want:

Hi Martin,
Ironically, I’m using int.lib to do all sorts of preset interpolation, and
one of the things I’d like to include within a preset would be a trajectory.
Now, I could create trajectories as bsplines and put the x y coords of the
control points under int.lib control, however what I really want to do is
allow interpolation between fairly arbitrary trajectories (that might be
drawn by hand). The hand-drawn trajectories would still have to be planar
graphs, but I’m anticipating that they’d be much easier/natural to create
than fiddling about with control points. The price of that freedom will come
at some extra effort in the interpolation side. Perhaps if I could convert
the hand-drawn trajectory to a close approximation by vectorisation (a la
Flash and/or Illustrator) I’d be able to put it into int.lib….. Not sure
if I’m hoping for too much at this stage….

I guess that is the only option I can imagine. A trjectory is already an
interpretation of a picture…

Emmanual Jourdan has a great break point function that does curves and supports pattr interpolation. It should be able to do the things you are talking about.
