    Foggy window effect

    Hi @Blake I moved this thread to the GSAP forum since it wasn't banner specific. You'll probably get more eyeballs on it over here. My thought would be to use a fractal noise pattern as a mask over a solid colored square (or whatever shape you need). That is then placed over the top of the image. By masking a solid colored shape you can easily change the color of the glass if you like. Maybe something like this: I used a fractal noise pattern and blurred it quite a bit so the effect is really subtle. This is a thumbnail version of the actual image I used: You could make the effect much more obvious by creating an image with more contrast. You wouldn't actually have to use a fractal noise pattern. A gradient would work fine too, but I think the fractal gives you more options. With a little extra effort you could add some drips and/or water droplets if you like. Hopefully that gives you some ideas. Others may jump in with additional thoughts. Happy tweening.

    SVG path motion doesnt work

    Hi @reflex Welcome to the forum. The problem is you have a massive group transform on line 10: <g transform="translate(-508 -3551.334)"> You'll need to account for that with an x/y offset like this: var motionPath = MorphSVGPlugin.pathDataToBezier( $("#how-i-do-it__graph__path"), { align: "#how-i-do-it__rocket", offsetY: -3551, offsetX: -508 } ); Hopefully that helps. Happy tweening.

    Performance issue on mobile

    GSAP is an animation engine that changes values over time. It doesn't do any rendering so the bottleneck is usually the browser. There shouldn't be any issues with GSAP animations on mobile. Are your elements ready when the tweens fire? If you could put together a simplified version of your project that demonstrates the problem, we can most likely point you in the right direction. Happy tweening.

    Recreating an animated X with GSAP

    Hey @smallio This thread gave me an idea for a new demo so I thought I'd post it for you. I animated the menu icon into the x and also added a little handwriting effect for some fun. Maybe it'll give you some ideas. Happy tweening.

    stroke-linecap and drawSVG issue in IE11 and Edge

    Happy to help and I'm glad it's working for you now. Edge can be such a fussy pants. This is my usual reaction to working with Edge and its diva nonsense.

    circle Mask animation

    I'm not sure what you're trying to do, but here's a quick example of a SVG with an image and a circle clip-path. It's all centered and the toggle will play/reverse the timeline. Hopefully that helps. Happy tweening.

    stroke-linecap and drawSVG issue in IE11 and Edge

    Hi @hyconnect It looked fine in Edge to me. I'm not sure what version of Edge you're using, but you can also try a slight rotation of the mask to force Edge to repaint. I wrote about that in our SVG Gotchas thread here: Hopefully that helps. Happy tweening.

    Is TimelineMax is included in TweenMax build?

    Yes - if you load TweenMax, you can create all the timelines you like.

    GSAP in Articulate 360 - Storyline 3

    Correction: there was this post: I have no idea if that will help, but that's all I could find.

    GSAP in Articulate 360 - Storyline 3

    I'm not at all familiar with Articulate 360 and I don't recall it being mentioned in the forums before now. Someone around here may have some knowledge about it, but I'm guessing you'd have better luck posting in their discussion forum. https://community.articulate.com/discuss

    Hi @makis2404 Your demo didn't embed properly, but I found it in your profile. The reason that doesn't work is you have each click create a tween that is added to the end of the timeline. The first tween on the timeline is 100 seconds in duration so the y position animation tweens won't happen until that tween ends. You could create a separate timeline for the click handler or you could simply use TweenMax like this: Keep in mind that on the first click the square will move up to y:0 since you're animating the attribute 'y'. I'm assuming you don't want that so I set the variable to 200 instead of 0. That should get you started. Happy tweening.

    SplitText menu help

    What? We're done with this one already? I was happy to help and I'm glad it's coming together for you. If you need additional GSAP assistance on this or any other projects, we're happy to help. Thank you for your support with your membership in Club GreenSock. It's most appreciated. Happy tweening.
  14. hmmm... I just looked at it again and it all played fine for me in all browsers. The only thing I see in the SVG is an extra group closing tag (</g>) on line 110. I don't think that would crash FireFox, but weird things happen sometimes. Other than that I guess you can check the usual suspects. Check FF on other machines, update graphics card drivers etc... Just an FYI: you can shorten your code a little by not using the add() method to add tweens to the timeline. //this tl.add(TweenLite.to(rainbowPTop, 5, { scale:85, transformOrigin: "50% 100%", ease: Expo.easeOut, }), 2.5); // could be shortened to this tl.to(rainbowPTop, 5, { scale:85, transformOrigin: "50% 100%", ease: Expo.easeOut, }, 2.5); Hopefully that helps. Happy tweening.

    SplitText menu help

    The hover and click didn't work because you have the .xBtn class z-index set to -50. Change that and the hover and click work just fine. There is one error in the exitAnim() function. The tween on line 118 is missing the duration. (You also wouldn't want that timeline paused.) Here's a new fork of your pen with those changes. In answer to your question about the +=180 for the lines: I used that because you said you wanted the x shape to rotate 180 degrees on hover. Those lines have already rotated several times so rather than try to figure out an exact rotation it's just easier to rotate 180 degrees from their current location. Hopefully that helps. Happy tweening.
