How to make metaballs and animate them with IX2

Hi everyone, I made this quick demo of what metaballs are, how it’s possible to craft CSS metaballs in Webflow with zero custom code, and how to animate them with IX2 to get a blobby-spongy-organic background effect.

I just showcased the site and made it clonable for you:
