CSS CSS Transitions and Transforms Adding 3D Effects with CSS Build a Rotating 3D Cube

Not a question... just another solution that may help others!

Some people have been having issues when the cube renders in Chrome. In Firefox it seems to work okay but in Chrome it appears to show the backface of each side.

A solution posted earlier was to use the "backface-visibility: hidden" property on the .front, .back, .left, and .right classes which appeared to help many people. This solution didn't work for me for some reason so I did a little more digging.

I came across another solution which was to add "opacity: 0.99" to the .front, .back, .left, and .right classes, which worked for me. I should mention I didn't need to use "backface-visibility: hidden" when using opacity.

Just thought I add this here to help others who may come across a similar issue!

My solution here with the chrome render issues was adding

backface-visibility: hidden;
transform-style: preserve-3d;

into the .front, .back, .left, .right declaration.

I did this course using Chrome and it performed as expected. As far as I know, anyone having issues has had a code error; and when the error is corrected the issue goes away.

Try sharing the snapshot you were having trouble with and perhaps we can find the cause.

UPDATE: You might be using the wrong kind of transforms. See the example in this other post where someone was having what sounds like a similar issue.
