- Transforms, transitions, and animations…are all things CSS can do,…but their names sound so similar, they can be misleading.…All three terms…sound like they could possibly make something move,…but not all three of them actually do.…The focus of this course is on CSS keyframe animations,…but since all three are frequently used together…in web animation, I'm going to cover transforms…and transitions briefly in this chapter.…I'll be covering the basics to get your started,…but for a more in-depth look at transitions and transforms,…check out the CSS: Transitions and Transforms course…with Joseph Lowery.…
Let's dive into transforms first.…I like to think of these as the yoga of CSS.…We can take these normally flat rectangular objects…in our HTML document…and kind of twist them around into different looking shapes.…On the technical side, transforms change the shape…and position of the affected content…by modifying the coordinate space.…Transforms also do not interrupt the normal document flow,…and that's an important thing to keep in mind.…
