CLIP PATH ANIMATION
The clip-path CSS property creates a clipping region that sets what part of an element should be shown. Parts that are inside the region are shown, while those outside are hidden.
Defining Basic Shapes With clip-path
clip-path makes it easy to clip-out basic shapes using either of the polygon, ellipse, circle or inset keywords, which are part of the CSS exclusion module.
clip-path: inset(100px 50px); clip-path: circle(50px at 0 100px); clip-path: polygon(50% 0%, 100% 50%, 50% 100%, 0% 50%); clip-path: path('M0.5,1 C0.5,1,0,0.7,0,0.3 A0.25,0.25,1,1,1,0.5,0.3 A0.25,0.25,1,1,1,1,0.3 C1,0.7,0.5,1,0.5,1 Z');
Box and shape values combined
clip-path: padding-box circle(50px at 0 100px);
Polygon is the most flexible of all the available shapes because it allows you to specify any amount of points, a little bit like an SVG path. The provided points are pairs of X and Y coordinates that can be of any unit (eg: pixel or percent-based). Because it’s the most flexible, it’s also the most complex and you’ll probably want to use a tool to define your points.
Animations and Transitions
Animations and transitions can also be applied with clip-path to create interesting effects. Just make sure that all the steps in your animation contains the same amount of points.
