This is an experimental technology
Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for the proper prefixes to use 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 spec changes.

Summary

The 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.

Syntax

Formal syntax: <single-animation-name>#
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

Values

none
Is a special keyword denoting no keyframes. It can be used to deactivate an animation without changing the ordering of the other identifiers, or to deactivate animations coming from the cascade.
IDENT
A string identifying the animation. This identifier is composed by a combination of case-insensitive letters a to z, numbers 0 to 9, underscores (_), and/or dashes (-). The first non-dash character must be a letter (that is, no number at the beginning of it, even if preceded by a dash.) Also, two dashes are forbidden at the beginning of the identifier.

Examples
