In this lesson, we’ll learn how to add animations to A-Frame objects using the built-in animation component. Animations can add interactivity and visual interest to XR experiences and can be used to create a variety of effects, such as movement, rotation, and scaling.

The animation component allows us to modify the following:

  • Component values such as position, rotation, and scale

  • Component property values such as light.intensity

We’ll learn about the application of the animation component by modifying both the components and the components’ properties.
