- In this video, we'll look at the steps involved…in creating a sprite image to use in CSS animations.…Then we'll set it in motion in the next video.…The end result of these two videos…will be this walking animation here.…This CSS animation technique is best for short,…highly illustrated, or traditionally drawn animations.…Typically, these animations will be created first…in animation software like After Effects or Flash…or maybe even drawn frame-by-frame…in something like Illustrator.…We won't be covering how to illustrate these animations…in these programs, but we will be covering…how to bring them to life with CSS.…
Sprite animations are typically used…for small, animated embellishments in web interfaces.…The Twitter "like heart" is an example of this.…When you click the "like heart," you see this animation,…and the sprite driving that animation is this image here.…These sprites are made up by collecting each frame…of the animation into one big image,…assigning that image as a background to a div,…and then moving that background image to create animation.…
