As CSS3 gains more buzz, more and more developers are finding great ways to utilize it. In my last post, I went over the great ways to develop buttons and how to effectively use imagery transitions. Now we will move on and talk about the great ways to use CSS3 for animation and 3D effects.

Who doesn’t love motion effects, right? shadows following the motion of movements while in a fighting scene, some of my favorite scenes are from The Matrix, Kung Fu Hustle, etc. I don’t event know how this effect is called, but sure is an awesome effect. The good news is that now-a-days we can create animations and play with them. Itâ€™s no an easy task to control distance and motion (the complex the code, the better control).

In 1996, Macromedia released their product called Macromedia Flash which is a vector-based animation platform. With Flash, web designers were now able to create animations using a timeline and vector design tools as a video. Furthermore, Flash was and still is a great solution for web designers to provide visitors smooth view in such small file size. The only thing that web surfers need to enjoy the sites using flash is to install Macromedia Flash Player.
