Hi All,

I'm new to GSAP. This is just a syntax question, I think:


I have two images that need to be scaled up and positioned on the screen simeltaneously (using a timeline)...as if they were attached or parented. My attempts to do this result in one of the images moving at a slightly different rate which is not what I need.


Below doesn't work as written ...but should give you an idea what I need to do:

var tl = new TimelineMax({paused:true, reversed:true});
TweenLite.defaultEase = Elastic.easeInOut;
tl.to(stage.ImageA (and ImageB), 1.3, {scaleX:3,scaleY:3, x: '+=263', y: '-=50'});
//These images need to scale up and move exactly in tandem as if attached.

Any help appreciated!

Because of the way transforms work, the images themselves will have no affect on each other if transformed directly. Illustrated here,

So, to make them transform "together" is right on with your line of thinking; transforming the parent. Illustrated here,
