Property Values

The following table describes the values of this property:

Value Description
none Specifies no motion path at all.
ray() Taking up to three values, defines a path that is a line segment starting from the position of the box and proceeds in the direction defined by the specified angle similar to the CSS gradient angle where 0deg is up, with positive angles increasing in the clockwise direction, with the size value being similar to the CSS radial gradient size values from closest-side to farthest-corner, and the keyterm contain.
url() References the ID of an SVG shape — circle, ellipse, line, path, polygon, polyline, or rect — using the shape's geometry as the path.
basic-shape Specifies a CSS shape including circle(), ellipse(), inset(), polygon(), or path().
initial Sets this property to its default value.
inherit If specified, the associated element takes the computed value of its parent element animation-delay property.
revert Reverts the cascaded value of the property from its current value to the value the property
revert-layer Rollback styles to the ones specified in previous cascade layers.
