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.
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.
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. ”

“ The GreenSock animation platform is one of the most useful sets of tools in existence when it comes to web animation. ”
“ 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. ”
“ ...obviously GSAP is incredible ”
“ GreenSock is the best thing that happened to SVG animations since SVG animations. ”
“ 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. ”
“ GSAP is just miles and miles ahead of any animation library out there. Great work! ”
“ 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. ”
“ Honestly think without TweenMax, I'd of changed careers by now; it's that good. ”
