Animating the rotation, scale, skew, and position of SVG elements via CSS has been completely impractical due to major browser inconsistencies...until now. GreenSock's CSSPlugin handles major bugs and inconsistencies across a wide range of modern browsers, making it easy for you to animate SVG elements exactly like regular DOM elements... even in IE.
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.
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.
“ Spent today converting an animation to pure CSS, and then into GSAP. GreenSock was an order of magnitude easier. Love it. ”

“ GreenSock is the best thing that happened to SVG animations since SVG animations. ”
“ 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. ”
“ GreenSock has encouraged me to play with the code, to dream up new and exciting things to do. ”
“ 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. ”
“ GSAP was a revelation for me to be compared with the introduction of jQuery ”

“ @greensock it’s a great library that many people love, and I know you care deeply about performance :) ”

“ With the incredible functionality, and the mind-blowing customer service, the price of Club GreenSock admission is well worth it! ”
“ 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. ”
