1-Difference between transforms and transitions.

1 Like

In CSS, both transforms and transitions are used to manipulate and animate elements on a web page, but they serve differetn purposes.

Transforms: CSS transforms are used to change the appearance or position of an element without affecting the layout of the document. They allow you to apply various transformations such as scaling, rotating, skewing, and translating an element. Transforms modify the coordinate space of an element, allowing you to visually manipulate it. Examples of CSS transform properties include transform, translate, scale, rotate, and skew.

CSS .box { width: 100px; height: 100px; background-color: blue; transform: rotate(45deg); }

Transiitions: CSS transitions, on the other hand, are used to smoothly animate changes in CSS properties over a specified duration. They define how an element should transition from one state to another when a specific CSS property changes. With transitions, you can speaciify the duration, timing function, delay, and other properties to control how the animation occurs. For example, you can animate the color, size, position, or opacity of an element using transitions. CSS transition properties include transition, transition-property, transition-duration, transition-timing-function, and transition-delay.

.btn {
padding: 10px 20px;
background-color: yellow;
transition: background-color 0.3s ease;

.btn:hover {
background-color: orange;

CSS Animations: CSS animations provide a more powerful and flexible way to create complex animations on web pages. Unlike transitions, which are triggered by changes in CSS properties, animations can be defined with keyframes that specify the intermediate states and how they transition over time. CSS animations allow you to create more intricate and dynamic effects, such as animating multiple properties simultaneously or creating non-linear animations. The main properties used in CSS animations include animation, animation-name, animation-duration, animation-timing-function, animation-delay, animation-iteration-count, and animation-fill-mode.

In conclusoin, transforms are used to modify an element’s appearance or position, transitions are used to animate changes in CSS properties, and CSS animations provide a more advanced and flexible way to create complex and custom animations on web pages.


transforms are the property:that will move the element in x&y direction and also in scale decreasing size in x&y…amd rotating in x and y…

transition is used for animation mostly that with time indiacted…
both are important part of animation to move the image zoom in or zoom out or rotation…
thank u


Transform is use in css to add the transformation in a content
Transitions is use for making direction of content box or making design to the object

Transforms :in css moves or modifies the appearance of an element , whereas the
transition property seemlessly
Transitions :it specifies the name of the css property the transition effect


In transforms property the element can move in x & y direction and also in scale decreasing size in x&y, rotating in x and y…
In transition is used for animation mostly that making design of elements


transform will move the element in horizontal and vertical directions and to rotate 360deg.
transition is the time taken to move the element
