Hi i'm creating a banner and using gsap to do some particle animation,

I need to keep the filesize down so i'm using TweenLite instead of TweenMax 


One thing that doesent seem to work with TweenLite is pauseAll?


Is that correct, or do i need to add a plugin or something?


Or, is there alternative way to mimick the TweenMax.pauseAll() with TweenLite

pauseAll() is a method of TweenMax and not TweenLite.


Most banner networks don't count TweenMax against file size because it is CDN-hosted and widely cached. 

Curious which network or publisher is causing a problem?


By loading TweenMax you get TimelineLite and TimelineMax which will make your banners sooo much easier to produce than just TweenLite. 


If you need to pause all your animations you could try

Ok, It didn't work, now the animation just moves really slow, aprox 1fps. 

But if i use 0.0000001 it works :) (good enough anyways)

Hi just saw your topic.


When I want to pause all and shut everything down I often do this:


Setting the globalTimeScale to (0) will stop the animation and any callback/events.

The problem with


is that even though the timelines are paused they do seem to complete even though you can't see it happening. When you un-pause your animation will then jump to the end of the timeline.
