We're excited to announce several new features in the GreenSock Animation Platform (GSAP) 1.12.0 that will increase not only "real" performance, but "perceived" performance as well. The innovative lagSmoothing() feature allows GSAP to automatically heal from CPU spikes that cause lag, all while maintaining perfect synchronization between all animations. And the new "lazy" rendering helps avoid layout thrashing when many animations start simultaneously.
I'm going to take a deeper look into CSS Animations and how they fit (or don't fit) into a modern animator's workflow. This isn't about simple fades or basic transitions (CSS is great for those); Developers who use animation to tell a story or deliver an incredibly rich interactive experience require a very different workflow than those who are simply doing UI transitions. 'm going to show you exactly where some of the pain points are for a typical project and how they can bring your workflow to a grinding halt. Even relatively simple animations like the one below can become surprisingly cumbersome with CSS.
“ With the incredible functionality, and the mind-blowing customer service, the price of Club GreenSock admission is well worth it! ”
“ GSAP makes my job fun, because it allows me to focus on creating rich, engaging web experiences, while GSAP handles much of the implementation details behind the scenes. ”
“ I think I love GreenSock as much as bacon. ”
“ Go and browse through FWA or Awwwards, then view source of anything you see that has cool animation and you will be surprised how widely GSAP is used. ”
“ The best thing about GSAP is that it just works, and it works well. On every single browser I’ve tested. ”
“ If every library were as robust and reliable as GreenSock’s, the world would be a much better place for software engineers and their clients. I can't think of a better designed or better performing tool, and as a bonus, it's fun as heck to play with. ”
“ The GreenSock animation platform is one of the most useful sets of tools in existence when it comes to web animation. ”
“ GSAP is just miles and miles ahead of any animation library out there. Great work! ”
“ GreenSock has encouraged me to play with the code, to dream up new and exciting things to do. ”
