I hope it's ok to post here a question about ScrollMagic + GSAP, too. 


I want to pause a DrawSVG Animation on a certain point for a certain duration. I've done this so far: 


Now I have the problem that on the end of the duration of the pause the animation jumps because it doesn't resume on the last position. How can i tell ScrollMagic to "wait" and stretch the length of the animation for the amount of time?


Many thanks for your ideas! :)

Hi Thomas, have you tried to split your SVG animation into two timelines or tweens and have two ScrollMagic scenes?


Each scene would then trigger and animate only half of your complete timeline eg:


1. Scene 1 would animate the SVG from 0 to 50%

2. Pause

3. Scene 2 would animate the SVG from 50% to 100%


You can define the length of the pause by setting a right offset to the Scene 2.


Hope that helps.
