Hi all,


Trying to animate a line between 2 random points inside a circle using drawSVG. That is the end result i am hoping for.


But this is a learning experience so doing it bit by bit.


However, i am now stuck. I can make the points appear (currently limited to 2) but would like to animate them in on the pointsTL timeline rather than using the pointer.appendTo("#circle").fadeIn(x);.


I put an example in the top left to show what i am trying to achieve but happy for direction to get back on track at the moment in terms of setting up the gsap timeline.


Any help is appreciated!

Just make an array of lines. It's not going to get much easier than this.

For something more advanced, you can use a single path and calculate the distances between each point.

That's pretty much the same method I used to create these SVG stroke recorders.
