CSS Question

CSS Animation changes the element position

I have a hexagon inside a circle.

See the initial scenario: https://jsfiddle.net/njzwfvpf/

Now I want to add an animation rotating the hexagon 360deg inside the circle

This is the existing scenario with the css animation (fiddle here):



.rotate {
-webkit-animation: rotating 3s cubic-bezier(0, 0, 1, 1) infinite alternate;
animation: rotating 3s cubic-bezier(0, 0, 1, 1) infinite alternate;
-webkit-transform-origin: 50% 50%;
transform-origin: 50% 50%;
}
@-webkit-keyframes rotating {
100% {
-webkit-transform: rotate(360deg);
transform: rotate(360deg);
}
}

<svg width="350" height="350">
<svg width="350" height="350">
<circle cx="230.00591443779982" cy="155.55555555555554" r="45" style="stroke: rgb(158, 157, 158); stroke-width: 1; fill: none;"></circle>

The problem is that adding the animation the Hexagon changes its position, it is not inside the circle nanymore.

What am I doing wrong ? How can I fix it?

Answer

The issue you are facing is that you are applying a transform with CSS (rotate(360deg)) while you already have a transform on the same element in the SVG (translate(239, 370)). You can solve this with 2 approaches :

  1. apply all the transforms with CSS so you can control the animation with CSS
  2. apply the CSS animation on the child element (the hexagon)

Here is an example of how you can solve it with the second approach :

.rotate {
  -webkit-animation: rotating 3s cubic-bezier(0, 0, 1, 1) infinite alternate;
          animation: rotating 3s cubic-bezier(0, 0, 1, 1) infinite alternate;
  -webkit-transform-origin: 50% 50%;
          transform-origin: 50% 50%;
}
@-webkit-keyframes rotating {
  100% {
    -webkit-transform: rotate(360deg);
            transform: rotate(360deg);
  }
}
