SVG Morphing generates animations between different shapes. You can define your own shapes through SVG path or polyline tags.
SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) is like an HTML tag with his attributes: every attribute defines a particular characteristic of the shape.
The example below is a black triangle, 600px size.
<svg version="1.1" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" x="0px" y="0px" width="600px" height="600px" viewBox="0 0 600 600" xml:space="preserve"> <g> <path d="M447.6,259.4L599,518.7H299.5H0l151.4-259.4L299.5,0L447.6,259.4z"/> </g> </svg>
Type of Shape
At now SVG Morphing use two tags type:
In both cases the attributes may change during the transition steps.
There are 3 different ways to trigger the animation:
- Animation: an infinite loop between shapes;
- Rollover: when the mouse cursor (finger on mobile) reaches the element;
- Scroll: when the scroll intercepts the element.
| Trigger Animation
loop between shapes
| Trigger Rollover
works only with the firs two shapes, can be linked.
| Trigger Scroll
animation starts only when you are in scroll area
Animations between shapes are managed in this tabulator. They could be also managed in single path or polyline element.
- Speed transition: the transition speed between shapes;
- Step duration: the amount of seconds before the next transition;
- Easing: the type of easing (in, out, InOut);
- Equation: the function of the easing.
These are the attributes of a single path:
- Numbers: the coordinates sequence;
- Transform: the rotation;
- Position: x and y position;
- Style: fill-IMAGE, fill-COLOR, stroke-COLOR, stroke-WIDTH;
- Animation: Speed, step duration and easing type and speed function.
