Default [is it possible ?] Surface Morphing

Given a surface A with N vertices, and another surface B with also N vertices. Is it possible, through a plugin, to build a volume which is the transition from surface A to B. For example, I've go a quad, with 16 vertices and a circle with 16 vertices. I choose to "bevel" the quad in order to finish in the circle form.

It an old feature taken from 3DStudio (non-max ;p) which was very useful.

You could select both objects
Switch to vertice mode.

Then you can find a function called something like "Create convex hull" in the vertice menu.
Won't help in every situation, but just try it...

Yes, though - you could create a plugin to do that.
