Material motion for Flutter

Material motion is a set of transition patterns that help users understand and navigate an app. Currently, the following transition patterns are available in this library:

  1. Container transform
  2. Shared axis
  3. Fade through
  4. Fade

Container transform

The container transform pattern is designed for transitions between UI elements that include a container. This pattern creates a visible connection between two UI elements.

Examples of the container transform:

  1. A card into a details page
  2. A list item into a details page
  3. A FAB into a details page
  4. A search bar into expanded search

Shared axis

The shared axis pattern is used for transitions between UI elements that have a spatial or navigational relationship. This pattern uses a shared transformation on the x, y, or z axis to reinforce the relationship between elements.

Examples of the shared axis pattern:

  1. An onboarding flow transitions along the x-axis
  2. A stepper transitions along the y-axis
  3. A parent-child navigation transitions along the z-axis

Fade through

The fade through pattern is used for transitions between UI elements that do not have a strong relationship to each other.

Examples of the fade through pattern:

  1. Tapping destinations in a bottom navigation bar
  2. Tapping a refresh icon
  3. Tapping an account switcher


The fade pattern is used for UI elements that enter or exit within the bounds of the screen, such as a dialog that fades in the center of the screen.

Examples of the fade pattern:

  1. A dialog
  2. A menu
  3. A snackbar
  4. A FAB
