I have many TimelineMax animations either running at the same time, or not running at all; is it possible to create an event that will be called everytime any timeline is ticking, and get the timeline that is ticking in that event? 


an alternative would be to set a simple javascript setTimeout call but only if I can tell if there are currently no running animations; is it possible to check if ANY timeline is currently running?

That functionality doesn't exist in the API (that I am aware of) but there are 2 ways worth exploring:


1 give every timeline an onUpdate callback that notifies some object that the timeline is currently active


2 put all your timelines in an array and constantly loop through the array and check the isActive() status of each: http://greensock.com/docs/#/HTML5/GSAP/TimelineLite/isActive/ IF you find that no animations are active you could then stop doing this check and restart it the next time you play another animation.
