In this course we will cover the fundamental techniques using in CSS to create animated SVG elements. SVG images look perfect on any screen size and with the importance of mobile web have become increasingly popular. SVG allows you to create animations and take flat illustrations to a whole new level.
This course is perfect for both new and experienced web developers who are yet to use SVG within their projects. If you have used HTML and CSS before you will have the knowledge to follow along with the examples.
By the end of this short course you will have created three separate SVG animations from scratch. Each example adds useful techniques for future projects. In just 2 hours you will have the experience to create your own SVG animations.
Improve your web development skills in this short course and make your next project stand out.
A quick introduction to the online editing tool codepen.io. We look at creating a new pen.
A quick introduction into the editing software Sublime Text.
A quick look at creating shapes in a vector graphics tool like Adobe Illustrator.
Take a sneak peak at this first projects results.
We create our first SVG using Adobe Illustrator. The SVG file is available as a resources for all those who do not have a vector graphics tool or do not wish to follow along with this lecture.
Open the SVG file with a text editor to view the code behind the image.
In this lecture we look at using the CSS transition technique to create an animation when hovering over our SVG element.
In this second project we create a more detailed SVG that incorporates test elements. Make sure to remember to use right click > "create outlines" whenever making text in your SVG. The SVG file is available as a resource.
We use a text editor to view the SVG and copy it into a new project at Codepen. The SVG is available as a resources in the previous lecture if needed.
Lets take a look at the animation we are trying to achive in this project.
Create the animating circle outline.
Create the animating text within the circle.
The 3rd animation project - Minimal. Preview the animation we will create in this section.
The SVG is available as a resource in the next lecture.
Part one of creating our Minimal animation project. The outline.
Part two of creating our Minimal animation project. The Diagonal lines.
Part three of our Minimal animation project. Animating Text with Animation delay.
A quick look at rotation.
Looking at making use of dashed lines instead of solid lines. Creates a unique effect.
Animating the size of shapes to create intereting effects.
We use a template from www.initializr.com and add in one of our SVG animations to go over how simple it is to integrate our work into a standard HTML page.
Thank you and congratulations.
Get ahead in the developer world. Learn new skills that will help take your career to the nest level.
