Animation is used to manipulate the images to appear as moving images. It is one of the most useful interactive web application techniques. Animations have a powerful ability. We can change a boring, static application into a more dynamic, memorable experience for your users. 

Using the transition property, we can implement animations with CSS easily. The animationIn and animationout will perform fadeInleft and fadeoutleft operations. Next, we have to list out all our items. The class selection operation started using the constructor.this.state will give us the current state value. The listed items are shown based on the button click when the visible animation is true. The removed item will perform the delete operation so that the visible items are getting hidden. This will go on with some moving shadow animation. This animation gives us clear visibility of the given item. 

Use of Animation in Different Sectors

  • Architecture and Engineering  
  • AR and VR (Augmented and Virtual Reality)
