I've added some code to allow the timelne start slow and end fast.

I want to put this on a master timeline with others.


If you uncommnet out my Master timeline you will notice the time line tween no longer takes effect

TweenLite.to(NUM1Timeline, 3, {progress:1, ease:Power2.easeIn});


I 'm clearly doing something wrong as this is not adding to the master timeline as I would like.


any help would be much appreciated

Hi Ryan!


You nearly got it. Actually, you got it right just placed the pieces in the wrong order.


You won't achieve the desired effect if you just add the timeline inside another timeline because it's the tweening of the progress of the first timeline that creates the easing you're looking for. Just tween the progress of the target timeline inside your master timeline to get the easing.


Swap your code for this and I think it's what you're looking for (I've left your original bits in for reference):


var NUM1Timeline = new TimelineMax();
  NUM1Timeline.staggerFrom(".SET1>g", 0.8, { opacity:0,}, 0.18)
.from(".top1", 2.4, {x: '-22%', y: '22%', opacity:1, },0.0)
.from(".shd1", 6, { opacity:0}, 0.0)
// TweenLite.to(NUM1Timeline, 3, {progress:1, ease:Power2.easeIn});

var masternumbers = new TimelineMax();
 // masternumbers.add(NUM1Timeline)
masternumbers.to(NUM1Timeline, 3, {progress:1, ease:Power2.easeIn});

very inspirational. I'm and animator working with traditional forms or software like AE that has a timeline. it is refreshing to see the level of creativity an fluidity to animations produced with code. I'd like to learn more.


Thank you

Anytime you have any questions Ryan, come back. There's a ton of people around who is more than happy to help out.


I'm an animator myself, like you, used to time sheets, keyframes and the such. The timeline now has to live in my mind when I am animating with code but, you can just write what you want to happen in a series of short sentences, that, will become your code. break it down into tiny pieces, later you will notice lots of those things are the same thing over and over again. That's the moment you see how wonderful computers are and how cool coding animation can also be fun. Building visually complex stuff with a bunch of very simple steps.


And thanks for the compliment. I'm looking to improve as well.

Thanks Dipscom. Really appreciate the help. Only been doing this a week, learnt loads from your help but getting a bit swamped.

trying to rebuild this with my designs.




I have this working but I need each number animation to play when a point is clicked or a progress is scrolled to
