Stagger Animation Question

Warning: Please note

Hi guys, I am wondering is there is a way to create a stagger animation with random stagging time, using the stagger methods.


Thanks in advance...

Hello @asilverio and welcome to the GreenSock Forum!


You can do this with the GSAP ModifiersPlugin.


Below shows a staggerTo() tween with random end values for CSS x (translateX) property, but could be done with any property:

Please see the following blog and docs page on function based values:

Whats new in GSAP 1.19.0: https://greensock.com/1-19-0/


Happy Tweening :)

Yup, Jonathan is right that you can use function-based values for any of the end values of the tweens. 

You can't really mess with the stagger amount, but you can use cycle to change the delay of each tween like this:


TweenMax.staggerTo(".box", 1, {
  x: 200,
    delay:function() {
      return Math.random() * 3


See the Pen vJEmed?editors=1010 by GreenSock (@GreenSock) on CodePen


You can learn more about cycle in any of the docs for the stagger methods: https://greensock.com/docs/TweenMax/static.staggerTo()
