Deprecated

This feature is no longer recommended. Though some browsers might still support it, it may have already been removed from the relevant web standards, may be in the process of being dropped, or may only be kept for compatibility purposes. Avoid using it, and update existing code if possible; see the compatibility table at the bottom of this page to guide your decision. Be aware that this feature may cease to work at any time.

This element has been deprecated in SVG 1.1 Second Edition and may be removed in a future version of SVG. It provides no features not already available by using the <animate> element. So, authors should use the <animate> element instead.

The <animateColor> SVG element specifies a color transformation over time.
