Draw SVG

Draw SVG

SVG provides us with the ability to animate elements by animating their numeric values (such as x, y, width and height), animating their positions, rotation, translation and so on, animating their colors, or animating their motion along a path.

Draw SVG provides its users much more options for customization & animation users can have. Check them out below.

Pro tip
SVGs have more offering than creating shapes & animations. Use them for blending, clipping, masking or for lighting effects. Just like stretched muscle.
