I have created multiple timelines with have different labels.

Is it possible to call these labels using a main timeline? 



    tlText.to(textSlides[3], transitionDuration, { opacity: 1, y: "+=100" })
    tlText.to(textSlides[3], transitionDuration, { opacity: 0, delay: showTextLength, y: "+=100" })
    tlText.set(textSlides[3], { y: "-=100" })

    mainTimeLine.add(tlText.play("tekst4"));// like this?

I want to use the main timeline to controll all the others?

Or is the best approach to just make it all on the same timeline and stop the animation from the start and use the tweenFromTo()?

This last approach seems to unorganized.


Thanks in advance for the help

Hi and welcome to the GreenSock forums,


Yeah, I think using tweenFromTo() inside your master timeline is the way to go.


Here is an example of how a master can tween through labels of 1 timeline in any order


var tl = new TimelineMax()

  .to(".green", 1, {backgroundColor:"red"})
  .to(".green", 1, {backgroundColor:"blue"})
  .to(".green", 1, {backgroundColor:"white"})

var master = new TimelineLite()

master.add(tl.tweenFromTo("red", "green"))
      .add(tl.tweenFromTo("white", "blue"), "+=0.2")
      .add(tl.tweenFromTo("red", "green"), "+=0.2")
      .add(tl.tweenFromTo("blue", "red"), "+=0.2");
