  • By UI controls, I assume you mean XAML controls.  As of now it's difficult to mix DirectX and XAML.

    However, you should look into using the XAML facility for animation.

  • I assume you want animations for UI.  XAML provides support for Animations.

    You can also use Direct2D based animations (not WinRT though):

  • I am specifically looking for non-rectangular transformation of UI Objects (example: http://lipidity.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2006/11/genie.jpg). The animation should be done in real-time.

  • Direct2D based animations look interesting. How can I apply them on my UI controls?
