- In this tutorial, we'll be creating…an infinitely looping animation.…CSS is great for this type of animation…because it makes it possible to set an infinite loop…with much less code than other methods.…We'll be creating a couple of animated clouds,…like the ones you see here, that drift across the sky.…We'll also be looking at the animation shorthand syntax…and using one set of keyframes for multiple elements.…First, let's take a quick look…at the HTML behind this example.…We have a div with a class of sky…and our two clouds within it.…Note that each cloud has a shared class of cloud…and a unique class as well.…
We'll use that unique class name…to create a slight variation in the animation for each cloud…and we'll use the shared class…for all of their common properties.…Switching over to our CSS,…we'll check out the initial styles we have in place.…We have a class of cloud…that lists all the shared properties…that both our clouds have…including width and height and the background image.…And then we have our unique classes…
