I am working on a simple vertical accordion menu and I noticed that the animations that I created run much slower the first time they are triggered and the correct speed every subsequent trigger.  Is there something obvious that I am missing or is my javascript just hosed?  Any help is appreciated.

Hi @hackfin:)


They run faster on subsequent plays because you're setting .timeScale(3) on line 39 when you reverse. If you'd like them all to play at a timeScale of 3 just add that timeScale to the play on line 33. If they should run slow on play and fast on reverse you can just set the play timeScale back to 1 on line 33.


Does that help?


Happy tweening.

That was it.  I knew it had to be something simple.  Thanks for your help!
