    I still think that animated GIFs are the best way to execute these type of particle animations. It is far more likely that it will render properly than with CSS code. The only portal that doesn’t render GIFs is Outlook, which fortunately isn’t the staple of our target audience.

    Here are my snowfall examples:

      Very nice cinemagraphs! I know Netflix does that in their emails to great effect as well. For client support, gifs definitely work best. However CSS animations can be a low effort way to add some frills to the email without a lot of production effort or adding extra weight to the email.

    Thank you for this. Really helpful.
    Do you think this could be done with SVGs of something or other instead of these css circles?

    • Justin

      You should be able to use SVG’s as background images in those clients that support SVG.

        had issues getting svgs to display but works a treat with pngs with transparent backgrounds!
