Appendix D: Animating SVG Documents

SVG supports the ability to change vector graphics over time, to create animated effects. SVG content can be animated in the following ways:

SVG does not mandate support for any of these animation methods. However, user agents that do support them are expected to support them for SVG documents and SVG fragments in other documents. User agents that support declarative or scripted animation are required to conform to the restrictions based on processing mode as defined in the Conformance chapter, and to the special requirements for animations in use-element shadow trees.
