Warning: Please note

first of all let me say congratulations for your great job, gsap definetly changed my career by now. 


So... I made a codepen for you isolating one animation of our last website that do not render well on safari. Surprise! On codepen it works perfectly...


I'm still writing asking for help but I will understand if you can't or do not want, due to the website has another addons like scrollmagic etc etc. 


I posted the codepen ( use it as reference on what we want ) and here goes the website: http://brand.uoc.edu.


As you can see on Safari absolutely all goes slow and jumping. 


Any ideas?


Thanks in advance and congrats again for the great job!


PS: My apologize for the english ;)

Welcome to the forums, martifenosa.


Hm, it's difficult to troubleshot with all the other code in there on a live site, but I did notice that the site is using a much older version of GSAP (1.15.1). Have you tried updating to 1.19.0? 


Happy tweening!

Your codepen from above goes to a 404 page, so it will be hard to test your code.

When I peeked at your actual site URL referenced above, it does look choppy in Safari but it's unrelated to GSAP as far as I can tell. For example, there are some huge "composite" times as well as anonymous function calls in base.js (oddly enough, at that spot it has logic mentioning "Shockwave Flash"). 


I wish we had time and resources to provide free consulting and general troubleshooting services for things like this, but we really try to keep these forums focused on only GSAP-specific questions. Feel free to show us any reduced test cases that indicate there may be a GSAP-related problem and we'd be happy to look into it. 


Happy tweening!
