All of the animation objects inherit from IPropertyAnimation. When they are retrieved through AnimationDescription.Animations, they are retrieved as generic IPropertyAnimation objects. The caller then checks the Type property, which provides one of the type values defined in this topic. The caller can then cast the IPropertyAnimation object to the specific animation object to access any additional properties it provides.
