I have a simple 3 part animation. The text get animated in, then the photo, but the 3rd part is wrong.  its a call to a function. the function has a TweenMax. from opacity 0,  but the text is showing from the start. then when the function gets called it runs normally. How do I get the text in the .anim-text to not show on page load?


Thank you,

You can change your opacity to autoAlpha on line 24 of your JS code

autoAlpha: 0,

and also add the CSS to hide your text when the page loads

.container .anim-text [class^="char"]{visibility:hidden;}

Hi Kv2  :)


Since you're using a from() tween for the characters in your function, I'd recommend setting the visibility of your .anim-text div to hidden in your CSS and then in your animpar() function add this line before the each() loop:

TweenMax.set(".anim-text", {autoAlpha:1});

The reason for that is when you set the visibility to hidden in your CSS and then you animate from an autoAlpha of 0, you'd essentially be animating from 0 to 0 and the words would not appear.


Here's a fork of your pen with that solution:

Hopefully that helps.


Happy tweening.
