CSS DEMOS3D Animated Cube for Internet Explorer IE10

Date : 11th January 2013

For all modern browsers

This demo is too wide for your mobile screen.
Please view on a tablet or PC.


Just to show what a pain it is to style a 3D animation in Internet Explorer IE10 without being able to use 'preserve-3d'.

This simple animated cube requires animation applied separately to each side. Whereas with 'preserve-3d' it can be aplied to the parent element only and so just have one animation.

Imagine the difficulty in producing and animating a 3D truncated icosahedron.

I think that support for 'preserve-3d' is a must for 3D and Internet Explorer IE10 should be updated as soon as possible.

This is smooth in IE10,Chrome and Safari. Firefox needs to improve on its rendering to match these browsers.
