I exported objects from AnimateCC and doing some HTML5 canvas animation.

Basically all works as expected, but I have problem with getting movieclip being tweened by stagger method.


I tried some solutions I've found, but for index I get undefined, "{{this}}" or some other combination like that just didin't do for me.



How to I target currently tweened movieclip ?

var tlm = new TimelineMax()
	tml.staggerFrom( mcArray, 1, {alpha:0, onStart:function(){console.log(mcArray[index])}}, 1)

Error I get here is that "Can't find variable index"


Thank you guys!

When you use the cycle property in a staggered tween you will have access to the index.

Should work just as well with Animate CC / Create JS movieclips as it does for DOM elements.

Thank you Carl.

I will see how I can redefine my code to use cycle.
