In today's lesson I'll show you how we can drastically alter the appearance of an svg element by applying an SVG filter. SVG filters are made up of filter primitives which in simple terms modify individual pixels.
Understanding filter primitives is a science unto its own and something I'm not terribly familiar with but I'll provide loads of resources below for you.
I'm going to show you how to apply filters in Boxy SVG and explore their source code. We'll then hunt down which attributes we need to to target with GSAP to animate!
A really cool feature of SVG filters is that we can apply them to HTML elements to.
Watch the entire video to see a number of svg filters that can take your artwork to the next level.
