Yup, F1 > Morph Targets.

Basically create your cylinder on the left with enough vertices. Clone it and move the verts so that it looks like the one on the right.

Morph Cylinder1 into Cylinder2 et voilá

i remember those shaft doors opening the way Black Mariah explains, from the first Alien movie, maybe the second. The bits were rotating and moving out. I d model/animate the bits individually myself..

I guessed by 'spearing' motion he meant something like this:

But, I'm placing 20 fronats on the fact that he will now model what Nik posted instead.

Hmmm. Not as easy as I thought to get perfect. I think more accurate placement (not by eye) is required.
