  • CSS Animation to Tell a Story
  • Time: Wednesday @ 4:00pm | Room E-132

Using advanced techniques, we will be constructing engaging CSS animations with very little to no jQuery. Through the creation of scalable graphics we will emphasize using the smallest amount of code for maximum impact and show when it is appropriate to use transitions versus animations and even how to combine them. We will look at current support for techniques across browsers, and spacial depth with foreground, middleground, and background. We will also be discussing the use of storyboarding to work out ideas to cut down on editing time and the composition of a nuanced character, even if the character is a concept.
