In Detail

When you hear the term 2D Animation, especially web animations, you probably imagine complicated Javascript codes, Flash or other hard-to-learn proprietary software programs. That's how it was until a few years ago. You had to spend days, or months mastering complicated software or learning a lot of syntaxes until you could create decent web animations. But no more! CSS3, and along with it, CSS Animations were released a few years ago, and they've have made your learning process MUCH easier. If you know the very basics of HTML and CSS, which anyone who has anything to do with coding/web design does, you're all set. Spend a few hours learning a bunch of CSS3 Animation syntaxes, and you'll be creating awesome web effects and keyframe animations in no time at all! Anyone can become a web animator now. Our course has 3 modules, where each module will thoroughly explain the intricacies of one of the concepts in CSS Animations with a wealth of over-the-shoulder examples.

Here are the modules:

Module 1 - Transformations - This is the foundation's module. You'll learn how to manipulate your web elements in this module. You'll learn how to move the elements around the web page, rotate them to any angle you want, resize them, skew them and so much more.

Module 2 - Transition animations - You'll learn how to smoothly transition an element from one state to another in here, so it looks like an animation. Change it's colors, size, position, stylings and so much more based on the conditions you give. You'll also learn to customize the transition animations by delaying them, changing the speed of the animation, changing the duration of the animation and so much more.

Module 3 - Keyframe animations - A bigger and more important concept. In here, you'll learn how to create frames that depict every single animation you want to be applied to your web elements. In the duration of the animation, you'll be able to perform multiple changes to your element. Learn how to give the illusion of movement to create high class animated scenes. Learn how to create real-world 2D animation effects by using the various properties and features available in keyframe animations.
