I have a list of items, using a stagger as it load on the page (going to use it with scroll) - this is fine.

But then I am also trying to apply an animation when hovering over one item. 


I have it all in the CodePen. After trying a few things myself, I ended up looking at this example: 

For some reason, when I hover on one it still apply the animation on all list items. Not sure if I am selecting something wrong / missing something.


Any ideas?


Thanks in advance.

Hi @Semblance :)


Just a small correction and this will work fine for you. In your each() loop you are grabbing all the figures and h3s, but you only want the ones within the target <li>. You can make that happen by changing lines 12 & 13 to:


.to(($(this).find('figure')), 0.5, {scale:1.1, ease:Back.easeOut.config(3)}, 0)
.to(($(this).find('h3')), 0.5, {y:20, scale:1.1, ease:Back.easeOut.config(3)}, '-=0.5');


Here's a fork of your pen:

Hopefully that helps. Happy tweening.

Hello @PointC 8-)


Definitely an aaaaha moment. That makes perfectly sense. 

Completely forgot about that one, but will definitely remember to think about that from now on. 


Thanks again for the enlightenment! ;-)


All the best!
