    AMPhtml WTF?

    No, I think it is fair to say. What would be really helpful is if you could try and re-create some of your best Ad examples as AMP Ads and document the results and difficulties in doing so. I can imagine a large portion of the great examples shown in the Inspiration thread, would not be able to be made as AMP : The more we're able to document the issues with building great AMP Ads, the more we would be able to get better features supported in AMP.

    Would you be able to add a Live Stream for this workshop for those of us not able to make it to NYC? As a lot of us are freelancers and wouldn't have an agency contact.

    oh Slack signup is here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd83J2IZA6cdR6jPwABGsJE8YL4pkypAbKMGgUZZriU7Qu6Tg/viewform?fbzx=4406980310789882877 That's the thing why that doesn't make sense, GSAP is already whitelisted and already on a number of ad network CDNs, so it shouldn't really make a difference. If Adobe Animate are creating the an amp-adobe-animate component, then wouldn't they be using Create.js as that is what Animate files use to run their animations? Create.js is also whitelisted by Google Ad CDN, so then why wouldn't GSAP be allowed as well? I feel like there isn't enough voices telling the people moving this forward what they actually want. And as @explorerzip says, a lot of the conversations that probably happen will be with managers and business types rather than developers and animators.

    AMPhtml WTF?

    Yea, I read this recently as well, and feel like it's a crock-of-$h!t. It's likely if they gave you a cross section of these ads, they would mostly be GWD templates or templates that you can build straight from DV360. Most of these are bland, static and make brands look the same as each other, which is fine for a large percentage of advertisers. But I'm sure, like me most of you are working with brands who really want to show off something creative and new, and a template that anyone can use would be out of the question. I did see that they've got AirBnb's Bodymoving Player as a component for AMP now. https://ampbyexample.com/components/amp-bodymovin-animation/ I wonder if it were possible for a GSAP component to be built as well? The only whitelisted animation component currently is: https://www.ampproject.org/docs/reference/components/amp-animation Which uses the Web Animations API, I haven't used it but I've not really seen much traction with WAAPI apart from some posts on Twitter. I'd rather not wait to see what happens but join the conversation and direct them down a path that is more suitable. As I understand it, AMP-Ads are not allowing arbitrary JavaScript to run which would mean a subset of animation properties using GSAP (ala TweenNano) would be perfectly valid if it could be verified as safe before being served. If you have the time, please join the AMP Slack Group: https://amphtml.slack.com (Sign Up form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd83J2IZA6cdR6jPwABGsJE8YL4pkypAbKMGgUZZriU7Qu6Tg/viewform?fbzx=4406980310789882877) and join the #a4a-discuss channel and voice your concerns. (And support for a AMP-GSAP component)!

    Amp Ads with greenshock

    Nice that could come in super useful. Are you seeing a big rise in AMPHTML banner usage? I still feel like AMP uptake is pretty low and only really gotten traction with much larger publishers/organisations.
  6. Going to kick-off this years creative examples with a campaign I started last year and am still finishing this year! https://nfl-game-pass-banners.herokuapp.com/nfl-2018-high-impact-sku-fyt-generic-prototype/ https://nfl-game-pass-banners.herokuapp.com/nfl-2018-simple-sku-prototype/ https://nfl-game-pass-banners.herokuapp.com/nfl-2018-match-up-countdown-prototype/

    Amp Ads with greenshock

    Hey guys, I've been poking around the AMPHTML Ads Spec lately and noticed they had allowed a amp-mustache extension, I was wondering if it could be possible for an amp-greensock extension? Perhaps like TweenNano from the Flash days, a really reduced use case of GSAP?
  8. You'll probably actually want: var url = 'https://www.example.com/?zip='; var zip = "12345"; Enabler.exitOverride('zipCodeExit', url + zip ); or var zip = "12345"; Enabler.exitQueryString('zipcodeExit', zip) The second would mean you still have the opportunity to edit the URL from the ad-server.

    GWD, DV360, GMP and you

    Yea, you might be right and it is just a marketing effort, I feel like there has been definitely a push and promotion of GWD as the recommended tool when authoring banners for Google platforms, during their recent efforts in GMP launch days etc.

    GWD, DV360, GMP and you

    Hey all, I wanted to ask if anyone else was feeling intense pressure from outside your agency to switch from (I assume) either hand-coding or animate CC to using Google Web Designer. It seems as though, with the move away from the DoubleClick brand into a more holistic platform in DV360 that they're trying to force us to use their WYSIWYG animator instead of being free to author banner animations however we see fit. I've tried GWD in the beta about 4-5 years ago, and I hated it, I know its improved since then, but so have I and I feel so much more flexibility being able to write code from scratch.

    Banners taking all CPU from games site

    I'm not sure if this is possible, but could you do something like: const adFrame = document.querySelector('#google_ads_iframe iframe'); adFrame.contentWindow.TweenLite.ticker.fps(15);

    I don't suppose he's talking about one of your ads? @volcanoflash

    Banners taking all CPU from games site

    It's difficult to know exactly what your issue is without having any URLs to check and see what is happening. I understand that you might not want to block ads and lose revenue, but you need to understand that if you're allowing ads from all kinds of places, the ads could be running all sorts of code on your website without your permission. Online advertising gets a bad rep from things like this, and it takes the community to be diligent to ensure bad actors don't flood the internet with malicious ads. (These ads might not be intentionally malicious, but just poorly coded. Or simply too heavy to be run on your website.) I've used GSAP in the creation of several thousand ads with varying degrees of complexity, it would have been rare that any of my builds had any effect on a website's performance, and if that did happen, the bugs were most likely code that I created as opposed to code created by @GreenSock

    Banners taking all CPU from games site

    Interesting issue. What are you using to display the ads? Are you using AdSense or DFP? Or some other service? I agree with @dev-kp that this really shouldn't be happening at all. Normally the ads will get vetted for high CPU usage. One solution would be to restrict HTML5/JavaScript Ads on game pages to only JPG/GIF but allow them on other navigational pages.
  15. Funny, I implemented something similar a while back.
