What you'll learn
- 1. History of Web Animations
- 2. CSS Animations [CSS animation properties, keyframe rule, transitions]
- 3. SVG Animations [SVG elements, attributes and properties that can be animated]
- 6. This course provides creative examples to illustrate the theory of interactive web animation. All of them are available for download, study and update.
- Web browser - Google Chrome (all animations have been tested in this browser)
- A text editor or you can work in the online CodePen editor (links to examples with code are prepared and attached to the corresponding lessons)
- Archiver for unpacking ".rar" archive with animation sources [If you choose the option of working with the code in the online editor CodePen, you will not need an archiver]
You are on the right track!
This course explores the 3 main basic sections of web animation in detail:
The advantages of this course over other courses:
This course uses the classic academic teaching model. At the beginning of the lessons, theoretical information is presented, followed by practical examples that consolidate new knowledge. As a result, you are not learning how to create specific animations from examples, but are learning the principles with which you can create any animation, as far as your imagination goes.
This course will save you time - there are no unnecessary words, only useful information. The course contains 20 000 words. The information volume is very large - be careful and focus on the material, I have no repetitions, each new lesson covers a new topic.
You will not see any code fixes in this course. Each symbol that appears will appear at the right time and will fulfill its role. All code prepared for you, optimized and refactored. Download the archive or work in CodePen. Play with the parameters and values of my example and then create your own based on the theory. Only by creating something new will you create and strengthen neural connections.
In this course, the design is well developed and there is no chaotic switching between windows. Everything in a clear sequence: theory -> example code -> demonstration. Many students are interested in graphic effects when presenting material. Despite the fact that this does not apply to the subject under study, I am ready to share this if you contact me with a question.
All lessons in this course are available for viewing in 1080p quality [view lessons in maximum quality whenever possible.]
The aim of this course is to show the advantages and disadvantages of methods when performing different types of web animation.
This course is structured sequentially: from simple to complex:
in the introduction, you will learn about the history of the creation of web animations;
below is the material on how to create the simplest animations using CSS3. CSS animation tutorial [CSS Animation properties, CSS animation keyframes rule, CSS animation transition, CSS animation examples];
in the middle of the course, we will talk about SVG animations. SVG animation tutorial. You will learn SVG elements, attributes and properties that can be animated, in addition to this, you will learn about Interface Time Event and Interactivity features in SVG. Interesting svg animation examples are waiting for you;
at the end, you will become familiar with the Web Animations API technology.
The structure of the graphic design of the course:
in the upper right part - the title of the chapter [Example: “CSS animations”];
in the upper left part - the number of the lesson in the current chapter [Example: “Lesson 2”];
in the upper middle part - the name of the lesson or the next topic of the current lesson [Example: “Attributes that define animation values over time”];
on the right side of the screen - a board with theoretical information;
on the left side of the screen - Visual studio code editor with examples illustrating the theory;
at the bottom of the screen - additional auxiliary information [Example: “class="LearnCssAnimation"”].
To work with the code, you can choose one of two options:
1. Get a link to the code of the current lesson in the online CodePen editor (for this you need to click the “Resources” button corresponding to the lesson you are currently studying, download the file with the link [example file: “C2L1 link to source code in codepen editor.txt”], open it in a text editor and follow the link).
2. Download the archive [example: “C2L1.rar”]. Unpack to disk. Open files in a text editor [“Visual Studio Code” can become a convenient editor, or any of your choice].
Who this course is for:
- everyone who is interested in web animation
- CSS developers
- Html developers
- website designer
- frontend developers
- UX/UI designers
- for people who collect a unique library of knowledge in order to have access to it from anywhere in the world
- creative people interested in learning new things
I am Alex, Software engineer.
My specialty: "Software for automated systems in science, production and management."
In my scientific activity, I had the opportunity to explore software from various angles, such as:
- creating a system of metrics with which you can evaluate the quality of writing program texts;
- study of programming style;
- assessment of structural complexity;
- creation of graph models of programs;
At the beginning of my working career I researched geo-information systems. The areas of study were on the surface of the earth in urban agglomerations and the shelf of the seabed.
I had a lot of work with hardware, and this greatly expanded the overall picture of what is happening in the digital world.
Now I am doing graphics and especially web animation!
My goal is to create online courses to transfer the knowledge accumulated by humanity!
