Join Val Head for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of CSS: Animation.
- I make a few assumptions about what you already know for the material in this course. So, let's take a minute to make sure we're on the same page. Animation is one of the newer things CSS can do, but it's not the best place to start learning CSS. You'll want to have basic working knowledge of HTML and CSS coming into this course. This course will focus on the syntax and use of animation related properties, but we won't be covering the underlying CSS and HTML structure of the examples in detail. This course focuses mostly on CSS keyframe animations, but I'll be touching on Transforms and Transistions briefly as well.
If you want a refresher on all things that Transforms and Transitions can do, check out the CSS Transitions and Transforms by Joseph Lowry. He covers both of these in a much greater detail there. If you're new to web design, or don't feel like you have enough background knowledge of HTML or CSS, you might want to check out some of the more introductory level courses, like CSS: Fundamentals, CSS: Page Layouts, or HTML Essential Training. Those courses have been created especially for new web designers and will give you a great foundation to start this course on if you don't have it already.
Web designer Val Head introduces CSS transforms and transitions—the foundation of most CSS animations—and shows how to keyframe simple animations and adjust their timing, fill, and direction. She also covers looping and chaining animations, animating HTML and SVG elements, and optimizing animation performance, and introduces the best tools and use cases for CSS animation.
