Hi housemates!

Can anyone verify my answer for this 3d transition challenge? It doesn't seem to work.. and I don't know where I went wrong. Thank you in advance.

My answer:

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below*/
.wrapper {
  perspective: 600px;
}

.photo {
  transform-style: preserve-3d;
  transform: rotateY(30deg);
}
style.css

The challenge wants you to specifically use the rotate3d function but only rotate on the y-axis. This is how we would do this with the rotate3d function:

.photo {
  transform: rotate3d(0, 1, 0, 30deg);
}

A follow up question. Which is the best practice that should I use/apply on my work?

Thank you very much again Jennifer.

Cheers!

Owa Aquino Honestly? I don't think it really matters when just dealing with rotation on one axis. But if you're going to be rotating on multiple axes simultaneously then this will save you a bunch of typing :smile:
