- There's one more animation property…I'd like to explore here…before we say goodbye to our robot animation,…and that's the property of animation-direction.…Right now, we've got our robot moving…across the screen from left to right,…but I think our robot would be a lot more interesting…if it at least changed direction.…Animation-direction is a property…that could help us get a lot more mileage…out of our animations without having to…make any major changes to our keyframes.…Specifically, animation-direction let's us manipulate…what order our keyframes are executed in.…
So far, our animations have only been played forwards,…which has worked out pretty well,…but we do have other options.…Animation-direction can be set to…normal, reverse, alternate,…and alternate-reverse.…An animation-direction of normal…means that all iterations of the animation…will be played as specified.…So your keyframes will play from start to end.…That means your keyframes will play…from your from keyframe to your to keyframe,…or your zero percent keyframe…
