Most developers have no idea how much GSAP does to solve challenges related to animating transforms (x, y, scale, rotation, etc.) This video highlights some of the top reasons you should be using GSAP for transforms specifically.
Specify the direction of rotation in GSAP (or let it decide the shortest one for you)
Solve tricky morphs by tapping into special features of MorphSVGPlugin from GSAP (video)
Get the position, rotation, scale or other transform-related values of a GSAP-animated element via its _gsTransform object.

There are some interesting (and surprising) performance implications of using CSS animations that aren't widely known. Check out this video demonstration.
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.
The secret to building gorgeous sequences with precise timing is understanding the super-flexible "position" parameter which controls the placement of your tweens, labels, callbacks, pauses, and even nested timelines.
Why has GSAP become an industry standard for animation on the web? Here are a few of the practical, real-world reasons.
With the release of iOS 7, I was anticipating some big leaps forward in browser performance. What I found was quite surprising. Is anyone else experiencing the same thing? Here's a quick [and very casual] video showing what I discovered:
Making a DOM element draggable isn't terribly difficult - there are jQuery plugins and even some native HTML5 capabilities in newer browsers. But generic dragging is kinda boring. What about smooth, natural momentum-based continuation after the user releases the mouse (or touch on mobile devices)? What about imposing bounds and edge resistance and silky-smooth redirection to certain landing values that you provide? Or flick/drag scrolling with bounce-back that doesn't look awkward? Or instead of dragging to change the position of an element, what if you want to spin it? Maybe you even want to track the momentum and let it come to rest naturally or rig it to glide to a stop at a certain value, Wheel-of-Fortune style? Yeah, that's a lot more complex. In fact, it can be a real drag to build (sorry, the pun was irresistible).
This video walks you through some common problems that professional animators face every day and shows you how GSAP’s TimelineLite tackles these challenges with ease.
