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.
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.
Why has GSAP become an industry standard for animation on the web? Here are a few of the practical, real-world reasons.
GSAP's CSSPlugin is now super-charged to handle some slick new CSS3 properties like 3D transforms, boxShadow, textShadow, borderRadius and clip. Plus you don't need to worry about a litany of vendor prefixes. GSAP makes it easy to create next-generation effects today.
