a little complex, but please show me in the right direction.

okay I would like to animate a logo, well actually a background of a logo. which is created from a clipping mask in illustrator. I would like the logo to be stationary while the background rotates either counter clockwise or clockwise or. is this possible. I have saved a version as svg.

There is multiple ways you could accomplish this.

  1. For web you could have a div positioned behind another div. The div positioned at the front with your stationary logo and the div behind set with your background, then setup a CSS transition to rotate the div in the background. (Do not put the front div inside the other div, just use positioning and layering to place it infront of the background div or the front div will rotate with the background div).

  2. Or you could import the two images into photoshop and use the animation frames to rotate the background layer and save as a gif (I am not sure if illustrator has animation frames like photoshop might be worth looking into).

That's awesome, I will try this out soon, actually thank you
