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. You'll see exactly where some of the pain points are for a typical project and how they can bring your workflow to a grinding halt.
“ 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. ”
“ GSAP and CSS Transitions: I've done both, and its like comparing an F16 to a horse. Take like 10 minutes to try. ”

“ This stuff is so incredibly amazing I can't believe it. The level of details and options put into these things and the natural instinct GreenSock has for solving everyday problems is impressive. ”

“ The GreenSock animation platform is one of the most useful sets of tools in existence when it comes to web animation. ”
“ @greensock it’s a great library that many people love, and I know you care deeply about performance :) ”
Paul Lewis, @aerotwist
“ Aside from GreenSock’s laser-focused attention to detail, GSAP is fast, reliable, flexible, exceptional value (read: free in most cases) and, very importantly, supported. ”
“ It's shocking the @w3c didn't use @greensock as a model of how to do animation via code. Did they even ask animators what they use? ”
Elliot Geno, @ElliotGeno
“ Performance has been of paramount importance for GreenSock, so there is always peace of mind for us, developers. ”
“ 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. ”
