- Let's get started with some CSS keyframe animation.…In this lesson,…we'll create a simple animation…of a robot moving across the screen…just like the one you see here…to demonstrate the basic components…of CSS keyframe animation.…Let's switch over to Sublime Text…to take a look at the HTML structure first.…The HTML behind our example is pretty simple.…Our robot is an image in our HTML document…with the class of robot assigned to it…and it's also sitting in our container div,…which has a class of wrapper.…If we look at our CSS file,…it's also pretty basic.…
We have a few margins set to keep everything away…from the edges of the page,…but that's about it.…There's not a whole lot going on just yet.…Before we start coding up our animation,…let's take a look at the two main parts…of any CSS animation.…For any CSS keyframe animation you create,…you have to first define the animation.…Basically, tell CSS what it is that should happen…and you also need to assign that animation…to a specific element or elements in your HTML.…
