Usage

Full sized live/animated background can be used in various ways, such as in website background, or use to fill HTML / SVG elements. You can also use them as slide / video background.

Here is an example of using animated pattern as background of an icon animation:

<div style="background:url(/your-background-url)"> <img src="your-icon-url"> </div>

As some examples, we use lots of animated background in loading.io, which you can find in following pages:

Formats

All backgrounds can be generated in APNG, GIF formats, and vector-based backgrounds can be generated in SVG formats. PNG sequence or static PNG are also available. To choose the right format for yourself, you should check the compatibility and quality of these file format before using them.

GIF

Provides the best compatibility, while big in size and low in quality. supports only up to 256 colors at most.

Supported by all browsers, even by old browser such as IE5 or Netscape.

SVG

Gives the best quality and file size but is CPU-intensive to render. Animation is more likely to lag when browser is busy

Animated SVG is not supported by IE or Edge.

APNG

Provides similar quality to SVG and is supported by most modern browsers, including Microsoft Edge.

However, its file size is proportional to image size, and isn't supported by older browser like IE.

You can also generate MP4, WebM and WebP formats for video-related postprocessing.
