SVG Drawing Animation

Animation made with vivus.js

Vivus.js is a JavaScript library that allows you to animate SVGs, giving them the appearance of being drawn with amazing effects.

SVG structure:

The order of SVG layers determines the animation sequence , the lower level will be the first in the animation.

All elements must have a stroke property and cannot be filled ( fill: “none”; ). Hidden path elements aren’t allowed in your SVG because Vivus show all hidden elements. No text elements allowed, they cannot be transformed into path elements. you must convert the font in a vector drawing.

3 Animation types:

resources_vivus_Animations_3x [animate_animate animation=”fadeInUp” duration=”2″ activation=”scroll” delay=”2″][/animate_animate]

 

OneByOne: Each path element is drawn one after the other; this is the most used.

Delayed: Every path element is drawn at the same time with a small delay at the start

Async: Each line is drawn asynchronously. They all start and finish at the same time

Timing function

To give more freedom, it’s possible to override the animation of each path and/or the entire SVG.

Path timing function for  every single path.

Anim timing function  for  the entire  animation.

Options for both functions: linear, ease,  ease-in,  ease-out and ease-out bounce


Build an animation in Hype:

1: Embed the Vivus library

Drag the virus.min.js in resourcers area

2: Embed SVG in hype

VIVUS works properly with the inner HTML,  you don’t need to import a SVG file.

Open the SVG with your text editor and copy the content.

Make SVG Responsive

The SVG comes with fixed size and do not adjust themselves to the size of the viewport by default. As a standard image, you can make a SVG vector illustration scale with the Hype content.  Simply replace the width and height values,  100% + auto.

Original: width="313.953px" height="314.95px"
New: width="100%" height:"auto"

 

Paste the code in the inner HTML

You must check the ID of the animation. By default in Illustrator the ID is “layer_1” but you can change this name.
Note: Chrome issue (version 46.x): With the height set to “auto”, in some cases, the animation don’t appear. It depends on the settings of the Iframe.  Soluiton: Change the value in pixel.

 

3: Add a function to control the animation
Basic example:

Start the animation using a timeline action that calls the “PlayFunction” function.

example1 = new Vivus('Layer_1', {type: 'oneByOne', duration: 450}); drawing.reset().play();

Animation type: One By One
Duration: 450 Milliseconds

Example with Timing Function + autostart:

resources_vivus_example_1

example1 = new Vivus('Layer_1', {type: 'oneByOne', duration: 450, animTimingFunction: Vivus.EASE_OUT, pathTimingFunction: Vivus.EASE_OUT, start: 'autostart'}, myCallback); function myCallback(){}

Animation type: One By One
Duration: 450 Milliseconds
Animation Timing Function: Ease Out
Path Timing Function: Ease Out
Start: Autostart

4: Start the animation

You can start the animation “on scene load”, with “timeline function”, with “custom behavior” and “on mouse click”

More Control over timeline

You can also split the SVG into separate animations and use Hype timelines to control the timing with more flexibility.

Open the SVG set: Layer_1 / 2 / 3 / 4
