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.
“ Spent today converting an animation to pure CSS, and then into GSAP. GreenSock was an order of magnitude easier. Love it. ”
Tristan Mugford, @tmugford
“ There is no doubt that GreenSock is currently the best available tool for creating astonishing interactive websites and animation effects. ”
“ 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. ”
“ Honestly think without TweenMax, I'd of changed careers by now; it's that good. ”
James Stone, @mimeartist
“ I think I love GreenSock as much as bacon. ”
“ 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
“ 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. ”
“ 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. ”
