  1. Three.js properties

    I would like to welcome the two of you to the Shock 'n Awe Club - Which I am the president. We do a lot of skulking around and a lot of falling off our chairs by simply reading the posts here.

    Oh noes! You have found the kink on my armour! The reaction to your question: ~ What is he even asking? I don't know!?!?! ~ What I am going to have to build - excuse my language if that's not the correct one - is the little distracting thing that distracts you while the browser does its thing while talking to the server. Which, I assume, is helpful to our DD77 colleague here. If you have insight to offer, I am all ears. And eyes.
  3. GSAP Slider with preloader

    And we enter in a new room in this dungeon of discovery... Although the initial battle with the loader has not gone as hoped, the one against the slider has not been too bad. Here is something I managed to whip up from this big project I am working on: The original one is a carousel - I am striping some bits out from it to make it simpler. Again, when I get some downtime I will work a bit more on this and report back. Same with the loader... I will eventually have to build an asset loader for the site anyway so, I'll adapt it to a more generic setup and post it here. We'll get there, folks!
  4. ExpoScaleEase Demo - How?

    Someone get me some LSD, let me have this on full screen for 8 hours then, come drag me out or feed me some food intravenously I'm going to reach nirvana!
  5. New SuperHero on the block, you can be next

    It looks like a lot of the old links are now dead. Some of the images I still have, I'll update the ones we find when we find them. Junior is now back where he belongs.

    New url added to the post. I am sure @Carl has been sabotaging my art.
  7. New SuperHero on the block, you can be next

    Looks like the embeded image is now stripped... @Carl is this something new in the forums? You're oppressing my culture here if so.
  8. GSAP Slider with preloader

    Sooooo... I now have to create a loader and a image slider myself for a project I am working on. Let's us combat this Hydra together and chronicle it here (and in a blog post somewhere when I find the time) ! Stay tuned!

    When's your birthday? (Just don't say tomorrow or next week or next month - no change I'll get around to it by then...)

    How dare you! That's libel! I do not have any revengeful habits. I am an artiste who sees the world with its true colours! Who in his right mind would call my "THE PANTHEON" piece revengeful?

    The first step into the darkness... Already demons of failure assault me. The bar doesn't start moving until too late, the actual code doesn't seem to work outside the debug mode of codePen - I imagine it is their order of loading, the JS doesn't run until all the other elements have loaded and so, ruins this version of it. And this is already far more convoluted than I expected this to be... Let us see what the next room in this dungeon will bring. @PointC I thank you for the encouragement and the brownie points. You know I am keeping tabs on them and one day I shall come to your door collect. @Visual-Q Aye! A man has to got to do what a man has got to do. And nowadays, a man has got to do also what a woman has got to do. ps: Lovely comment on how you defer loading your background images. I never thought of such simple thing. Great to see others chip in with their ways of doing things. We all end up learning a thing or two.

    I shall take on the mantle and see this issue resolved! May the GODS bless me with wisdom to navigate the darkness! It will also be a very long jouney with very small steps. First step bellow.

    Oh @DD77... You really make it hard for us to help you. I know it sounds wingy but you need to make a bit more of an effort to make it easy for people to look at your code. You need to make as simple as you can otherwise you won't get attention. We only have so much time to spend around here that we cannot afford an hour or two going over one person's code if there is four or five others with questions and a much smaller code base to look at. Also, by making it as small as an example you can, you will probably end up seeing ways of simplifying your own code. You didn't even change the title of the pen... One does not know which pen one is looking without refering to the thread. There is so much code in both of your examples that I think your issue is that you have tangled yourself and have too many side-effects in your functions that are causing trouble. Your preloader, for example: - You have a tween inside 'loadProgress' targeting 'progressTl' - But up to that point in your code there is no object declared with a name of 'progressTl'. - Then, afterwards, you do define a 'progressTl' with an onUpdate and an onComplete calls. Why are you returning a timeline on your onComplete? It's not doing anything that return statement. And on your onUpdate you are calling a progressUpdate but, in there you are calculating a 'loadingProgress' variable that you already had calculated in your previous loadProgress function. I have no familiarity with jQuery so, I don't know what the .progress() bit is doing but I guess it is calling the given function a set number of times. Is it calling it everytime the loading of the image updated? And all of that is without even looking at your slider example...

    @DD77, hey man, both links go to the same pen.
  15. Smooth transition from mousewheel scroll to scrollTo?

    Just to chime in @Visual-Q, some scroll events, depending on how they were trigered, cannot be cancelled. It might be outside GSAP's reach. @GreenSock himself will be able to confirm that. In the meantime, this article has some useful information about how browsers handle scroll. https://blogs.windows.com/msedgedev/2017/03/08/scrolling-on-the-web/#lvzozB8m1fZOWgTt.97
