Perspective transform on hover

CSS, Animation

Applies a perspective transform with a hover animation to an element.

  • Use transform with the perspective() and rotateY() functions to create a perspective for the element.
  • Use a transition to update the transform attribute's value on hover.
  • Change the rotateY() value to negative to mirror the perspective effect from left to right.
