This video discusses transitions are available and how to use them.
- [Narrator] In the last few sections,…we've seen tool tips, pop up, and colors…change on hover.…In both cases, the changes have been instant.…But what if we want to slow them down…and show the change in progress?…Changing an elements size or color instantly…can confuse your user.…They might doubt that there had been a change at all.…Perhaps the page just jumped.…Maybe that bar chart was always that height.…Changing an elements size slowly…leaves the user in no doubt…there is a change happening and it is intentional.…It can also look more sophisticated and professional,…or it can help you to draw attention…to one particular aspect of your graphic.…
You can use transitions to run a movie…or work in an infinite loop.…As here, you can even make a polar clock.…Transitions change some of aspect of an element…over time rather than instantly.…Any attribute that can be set in D3 can be changed…slowly with a transition.…So let's change our Voronoi diagram…and make our polygon go blue slowly rather than instantly.…At its most basic, we just insert the word transition.…
