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.
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.
“ Really quite impressed with @GreenSock JS - even the small things. ”
Joseph Labrecque, @JosephLabrecque
“ GreenSock is the best thing that happened to SVG animations since SVG animations. ”
“ 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. ”
“ No other animation library is as intuitive, rigorous, conceptually simple and well curated as GreenSock’s ”
“ ...obviously GSAP is incredible ”
“ GSAP and CSS Transitions: I've done both, and its like comparing an F16 to a horse. Take like 10 minutes to try. ”

“ 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. ”
“ The best thing about GSAP is that it just works, and it works well. On every single browser I’ve tested. ”
