Hero Animation :

Hero widget is a great out-of-the-box animation for communicating the navigation action of a widget flying from page to page. Hero animation is a shared element transition (animation) between two different pages. Now to See this, Imagine a superhero flying in action. For example, you must have an image list. As we wrap it with a hero tag. Now we tap on an item list. and when tapped. Then the images list item lands its position on the detail page. when we cancel it and come back to the list page, then the hero widget returns to its page.

Demo Module :

In this screen use the PageRouteBuilder class to create a custom root. It Provides animation object. The PageViewBuilder has a transitionDuration function that sets animation durations. Builder function is used to create route content add the transition builder function.

      transitionDuration: Duration(milliseconds:900),
      pageBuilder: (_, __, ___) => ListDetail(index: index),
      settings: RouteSettings(
        arguments: heroAnimationListModel[index],

The Hero widget is the marked for hero animations. when the naviagator push or pop pageroot,the entire screen content changes.But it displays and resizes from page to another page.

//Hero Animation list page.
  tag: "ImageTag" + index.toString(),
  child: ClipRRect(
    borderRadius: BorderRadius.only(
      topLeft: Radius.circular(15.0),
      topRight: Radius.circular(15.0),
    child: Image.asset(
      width: _width,
      fit: BoxFit.fill,

In this Detail Screen, we have used the same tag of the hero widget from the list page (Main Page) which transitions the hero animation.

    tag: "ImageTag" + widget.index.toString(),
    child: Image.asset(
      fit: BoxFit.cover,
