Motion Paths Beyond SVG #MotionSVG

The new Web Animations specs are about unifying SVG, CSS, and JavaScript animations, and oftentimes that means exposing one group's exclusive method to the others. Animating an object along a path has been the domain of SVG... but the doors are opening to any element through CSS and JS!

We'll take a look at what new tools we have to animate any element on a page along any path we can draw, instead of limiting ourselves to straight lines or complex keyframes.

In this session, we will answer:

  • What are Motion Paths, and how are they used in SVG (SMIL)?
  • Why would I want to use them outside of SVG?
  • How can we use them with CSS/JS?
  • What's next for this technique?
