I couldn't get a simple MorphSVG to work in my project, so I copied snipets from my code and put it in a codepen. It works fine there.


The svg loads fine, and I hide the part I want to morph to fine. But when I run the TweenMax (which I confirmed is being hit in the code) nothing happens. No errors, nothing else breaks, just nothing happens.


I don't get any console errors.

jQuery, TweenMax, and MorphSVG are all included properly and the files are in sources.

Hello hesonline, and Welcome to the GreenSock Forum!

  • In your project are you loading the latest version of GSAP?
  • What are the GSAP scripts you are loading in your project?

Please paste the code here so we can see what scripts and versions your running in your project versus codepen


Thanks :)

The full code is way too large to post in forum. But the parts in codepen are directly from my project. (besides css)

I even redownloaded gsap and switched out the folders.


I'm using: 

  • TweenMax.js
  • ThrowPropsPlugin.min.js
  • Draggable.js
  • DrawSVGPlugin.min.js
  • MorphSVGPlugin.min.js

Thanks.. Yeah i only meant the script like you posted above.. do you mind also giving us the version of each.. so we can check against, to make sure those are not the special codepen versions of those GSAP scripts.


And are those scripts loaded locally or via a CDN?

They're all loaded locally.

<script src="bower_components/gsap/src/uncompressed/TweenMax.js"></script> <!-- VERSION: 1.17.0 -->
<script src="bower_components/gsap/src/minified/plugins/ThrowPropsPlugin.min.js"></script> <!-- VERSION: 0.9.9 -->
<script src="bower_components/gsap/src/uncompressed/plugins/Draggable.js"></script> <!-- VERSION: 0.14.0 -->
<script src="bower_components/gsap/src/minified/plugins/DrawSVGPlugin.min.js"></script> <!-- VERSION: 0.0.7 -->
<script src="bower_components/gsap/src/minified/plugins/MorphSVGPlugin.min.js"></script> <!-- VERSION: 0.8.0 -->

You need to use TweenMax version 1.18.0

That did it. Looking through the files I updated before it looks like I updated TimelineMax when I re downloaded everything -- Even though I don't use it in the project. Oops. Thanks guys!
