This is an experimental technology
Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for usage in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the specification changes.
animation-name CSS property specifies a list of animations that should be applied to the selected element. Each name indicates a
@keyframes at-rule that defines the property values for the animation sequence.
It is often convenient to use the shorthand property
animation to set all animation properties at once.
|Applies to||all elements, |
|Computed value||as specified|
|Canonical order||the unique non-ambiguous order defined by the formal grammar|
animation-name: none; animation-name: test_05; animation-name: -specific; animation-name: sliding-vertically; animation-name: test1; animation-name: test1, animation4; animation-name: none, -moz-specific, sliding; animation-name: initial animation-name: inherit animation-name: unset
<single-animation-name> is one of the following keywords:

inheritin any combination of cases.
<single-animation-name> = none | IDENT
