SVG offers a quality, scalability, size, and user-experience to its users, over the years since it was launched many people have opted SVG animation. SVG animation provides a user-friendly interface and they have made it faster and easy way to animate SVG.
Advantages of using SVG
Vector graphics are scalable
The greatest advantage is chance to scale them to whatever size you want without losing quality. This is mainly the reason why they are ideal for designing company logos and other designs that are most often resized.
Easy to create.
Creating simple graphics with XML is quite easy and faster. There are plenty user-friendly vector graphics editors that could be used to create SVG graphics, like Adobe Illustrator, Macromedia Freehand, and Corel Draw.
Easy to edit
SVG is easy to edit, which represents a huge advantage over rasterized graphics. If you want to make changes to your vector graphics, all you need is a text editor or even, use a vector graphic editing tool.
Smaller file sizes
Having a smaller file size makes transferring and loading graphics much faster on the web. That”s the reason why many designers prefer to use vector graphics, for you could easily view them on the web without needing to wait for a long time in order to see the entire image.
Ideal for details
Since vectors use lines, it is easier to create very detailed graphics. Also, illustrations will look sharper than high resolution photographs no matter what you will use them for. This makes them clearer and easier to understand.
File size based on complexity
They are based on how complex or difficult the image is, how complex the lines are and how complicated the points are. The size of these graphics is not based on the size or color depth.
Some practical uses of SVG
The practical uses of SVG animations include:
- Graphs – As it works very well when it comes to creating graphs and info-graphics.
- Road Map – Roadmaps are built of hard lines and exact shapes. These shapes can be represented easily with vector graphics, and offer themselves to zooming into the map for further detail.
- Complex UI elements – Sometimes we may need to create a more complex UI element which consists of a number of shapes, keeping in mind the responsiveness in the meantime.
- Logos – Most logos are vector-based graphics.
All these are practical uses of SVG animation, they have a wide range of functions for bothering web developers and designers.
