Hmmm...mine codepen...is gone??

Don't know codepen good enough, when i want to save something do i have to fork or save?

 

 

I think i can build an animation,

but now try to test it with google

so i have to set my images to the local link..and link the tweenmax files in my code.

 

 

i've linked the tweenmax with this line in the settings

https://s0.2mdn.net/ads/studio/cached_libs/tweenmax_1.18.0_499ba64a23378545748ff12d372e59e9_min.js

 

but i also have sizzle... ( http://s.cdpn.io/16327/sizzle.min.js )

 

i don't exactly know what it is, and i don't see it in the google preference list...

https://support.google.com/richmedia/answer/6307288

 

 

can i put it in the code or maybe i can delete it from the code??

 

http://codepen.io/cartamundi/pen/rxWwej?editors=010 (with image-links to a local folder)

 

 

this i a version with the image-links to my dropbox

Hi Cartamundi,

 

I am not sure I understand what you are asking here. I can see you banner and the animations but I fail to grasp what is it that you want help with.

 

One thing I would say, though, is: it would be more beneficial for you if you opened a new thread for critique on you banner if that is what you are after. That way, it makes it easier for people to find stuff in the forums.

 

Regarding "how to make better" I am assuming you mean best practices. Well, I have some personal opinions that I put in writing in codePen, maybe you might agree with me on a thing or two. The link is: http://codepen.io/dipscom/posts/

Yup, I agree with Dipscom, a new thread would be best.

 

Regarding Sizzle, it is just a lightweight selector engine that can be helpful if you want to select items using css selectors like "h2" or "h2.subhead".. but with all major browsers supporting querySelectorAll() it really isn't necessary. Since you are only using IDs your code will work just fine like

 

var  $panellogo =  document.getElementById("panellogo"),
  $panelShadow =  document.getElementById("panelShadow"),
  $panelhead =  document.getElementById("panelhead"),
  $panelBostonVan =  document.getElementById("panelBostonVan"),
  $panelBostonVoor =  document.getElementById("panelBostonVoor")
 ...

 

or:

var  $panellogo =  document.querySelectorAll("#panellogo"),
  $panelShadow =  document.querySelectorAll("#panelShadow"),
  $panelhead =  document.querySelectorAll("#panelhead"),
  $panelBostonVan =  document.querySelectorAll("#panelBostonVan"),

http://codepen.io/GreenSock/pen/rxWzyr?editors=001

 

You don't need sizzle for your banner. If you have more questions please start a new thread. 

 

Thanks!

Got an answer. [EDIT:] scroll down and see the good news - AdWords now officially supports GSAP and exempts it from file size calculations using the same CDN URLs as DoubleClick. :)

Is there an official statement somewhere regarding this? I am getting push back from using this CDN because their HTML validator flags the use of external libraries. Even their own. I wanted to send our team something that to show that they do in fact accept these.

Thanks!

I've found that this is only true in the US and the UK, and some parts of Europe. I don't believe this was a full rollout across all regions, as I've been provided with similar looking docs pages that doesn't have the GSAP or CreateJS links.

 

It will probably take some time before all regions are updated with the new validation code.

Im following this thread with great interest. So many options, but i really need the most basic one and that is support for the cheapest option namely the Adwords Display Network. So no DoubleClick or other more advanced tools with more CDN options

 

Im trying to use the new Adobe Animate CC 2015 as my main production tool, for it allows me to easily convert to canvas, and as an old school flash user its just feels at ease especially with Going Greensock of course. From this page i found them; https://support.google.com/richmedia/answer/6307288?hl=en

 

Im trying to use two following CDN sources;

1. https://s0.2mdn.net/ads/studio/cached_libs/createjs_2015.11.26_54e1c3722102182bb133912ad4442e19_min.js

 
Such a pity 1. does NOT work, so no use of Animate CC 2015 as a tool. I can include easeJS.js, however its library alone is 191Kb too much for the 150kB Adwords limit.
 
However now the good news, the Greensock CDN IS supported, i have an animation running!!!
 
Hope this helps others who build specifically for the Google Adwords Display Network.
 
If anyone else did get it working to include the easeJS.js library from a CDN i would love to hear.
Hope any one can make a successful CDN link to easeJS.js in Google Adwords Display Network
(Not double-click or other advanced tools)
 
Regards Hans

The 150k limit is for the zipped file size; the entire minified CreateJS library is 50k zipped, so even without the CDN it is still useable if the rest of your zipped assets are under 100k.

Not true, it does work, but you must include other two libraries, 15kb zipped

Just to give an update on my specific Google Adwords Display network tries in finding a nice and easy production tool

1. Google Web Designer uses its own JS: several JS files but in total together when zipped barely 18Kb, the lowest and winner

2. Adobe Edge includes its own JS: edge.6.0.0.min.zip is 34 KB

3. Adobe Animate CC 2015 uses CreateJS: createjs-2015.11.26.min.zip is 49KB

 

All three of the above are able to work together with the CDN version of GreenSock GSAP. GWD gives the most headroom for the includes of your graphics. I used it successfully and quite easy. There is support for actions and loops, labels in timeline with added bonus to have TappAreas that are supported by Adwords Display Network. As always my remark only amount to Google Adwords and not more advances networks as DoubleClick etc. I did not get that 15KB that Web Dizajner could achieve.

Wanted to ask a technical question of where is the best place to link to GSAP in your HTML?

 

I downloaded the starter HTML5 file for a 300x250 animated banner to do some experimentation on.

 

I guess it makes the most sense to put it here?

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
  <meta data-template-name="Template_H5T_inpage-300x250-image">

Yeah but if you're using TimelineLite you're also going to want to include these:

    <script src="https://s0.2mdn.net/ads/studio/cached_libs/cssplugin_1.18.0_71489205621d46cbe88348eeb8fe493f_min.js"></script>
    <script src="https://s0.2mdn.net/ads/studio/cached_libs/easepack_1.18.0_ed5816e732515f56d96a67f6a2a15ccb_min.js"></script>
    <script src="https://s0.2mdn.net/ads/studio/cached_libs/tweenlite_1.18.0_56fa823cfbbef1c2f4d4346f0f0e6c3c_min.js"></script>

But since the file size of CDN-hosted libraries isn't counted against your banner, it might make more sense just to use TweenMax which has everything in one.

<script src="https://s0.2mdn.net/ads/studio/cached_libs/tweenmax_1.18.0_499ba64a23378545748ff12d372e59e9_min.js></script>

Awesome news: 1.19.0 is out! The Modifiers plugin is really a big achievement. Thanks Greensock! When can we reach the new version via Google CDN?

Few newb questions here I need help ironing out.

 

 

I am currently using the following links to reference greensock and js:

 

  <script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/gsap/1.18.5/TweenMax.min.js"></script>

 
 
I am currently preparing my banners Doubleclick, so as I understand it I need to replace these links with the Hosts URLS found here: https://support.google.com/richmedia/answer/6307288
 
I can replace the TweenMax successfully but there doesn't seem to be a Jquery URL that works? What would I do in this situation to replace:
 

 

Or will it just work like that, and do I even need to change the links from the original 'cdnjs.cloudfare.com...' links?

I would think you could use the Google-hosted Jquery

3.x snippet: <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.1.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
2.x snippet: <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.2.4/jquery.min.js"></script>
1.x snippet: <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.12.4/jquery.min.js"></script>

I've never used JQuery in a banner, so I can't be 100% sure.  You can always use this validator to check your files though: https://h5validator.appspot.com/dcm

Actually yes I used the validator and it came through clear even with the original scripts I used. Will these ones still work as is or do they need the doubleclick specific urls?

Pretty sure DC advise against using jQuery in banners: https://support.google.com/richmedia/answer/6098183?hl=en-GB

 

 

 

  • jQuery is not recommended for HTML5 ads because of the unnecessary file weight: the majority of the library's functionality isn't required. As an alternative, you can use zepto.js

 

https://support.google.com/richmedia/answer/6261897?hl=en#js

 

 

Don’t use jQuery

jQuery adds unnecessary file size (~75k) even though the majority of the jQuery library is not used. Instead,convert from jQuery to pure JavaScript, use a minimalist library like Zepto.js, or consider GreenSock's TweenLite.

 

 

The validators aren't a 100% and it will always depend on which network on DC your banners are doing to AdWords/GDN/DCM/YouTube all have different rules.

That's interesting.  For Adwords, they list (Google-hosted) Jquery as one of the few external references that's allowed: https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/176108#otherhtml5

Since all ID is present in the DOM as global reference, the elements are easily accessible. If You are using GSAP to animate these elements, there is no reason to use JQuery in a banner ad, in my opinion. It is more suitable for a responsive website or a GUI. Despite that fact JQuery is hosted on google CDN, the loading millisecs and the request time is wasted.

I am trying to use the google hosted version of TweenMax, but I get a "ReferenceError: TimelineLite is not defined"

 

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://s0.2mdn.net/ads/studio/cached_libs/tweenmax_1.18.5_23b0de6da0ee295131e32a500470610c_min.js"></script>

 

Same thing with just loading the cached TimelineLite.

 

What am I doing wrong?

You need to wait for GSAP to be download and loaded by the browser.

 

Something like:

document.addEventListener("DOMContentLoaded", function(event) { 
  //Now run your animation.
});
