Figure 6-1 shows a QuickShape rectangle blended to a
duplicate whose corners are so rounded that the shape looks

transition, and at bottom the blend has been modified for its
intermediate positions. You can also access an Attribute Profile
panel by clicking its button, to the right of the Position Profile

the Position Profile panel is used to “prefer” distribution of the
blend shapes between its parent shapes.
