I have a short animation made using the DrawSVG Plugin.  There's a lighting bolt in the middle.  Problem is, it shows a long white line at the very beginning and then when in animates, it just jumps at the end to close off the object.  I need this line to be invisible at the beginning and for the animation to run smoothly.


Please check my Codepen URL.

Great job and svg cleanup tool link Diaco! ..


To add to Diaco's outstanding advise!. I also noticed that in your CSS you have some CSS shorthand properties with commas.

// so this 

// should be this with no commas
padding:0 0 0 0;

And since you are including your SVG code in an HTML page (codepen's HTML panel) you don't need the <xml> tag or the <doctype> tag. Since those are only needed if you leave your SVG code in an svg file (example: my_svg_file.svg ).

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!-- Generator: Adobe Illustrator 15.1.0, SVG Export Plug-In . SVG Version: 6.00 Build 0)  -->
<!DOCTYPE svg PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/1.1/DTD/svg11.dtd">

But Diaco's very handy svg clean up tool link, will do all the heavy code clean up for you ;)
