Hi Everyone!

I'm new here at GSAP and I'm trying to create an interactive infographic. (final goal) 
For now, I want to move the right image when the mouse hovers over it. When the mouse doesn't hover over it, the image should go back to the starting position. It's a quite easy movement but for one reason the code doesn't work. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in advance :)

Hi and welcome to the GreenSock forums.


Thanks for the demo. There were a few little problems.


  • hover() is deprecated in the version of jQuery you are using
  • HTML you have class"beerRight" (missing =) instead of class="beerRight"
  • in JS you are using beerright instead of beerRight

beerRight should be working below. I took out beerLeft as I was troubleshooting.

In general it is a little troublesome having an object move away on mouseenter as it can trigger a mouseleave (depending on where the mouse is and how far the object moves)

Hi @Ilse,


I would like to pick up the hint of CARL. 


I don´t know your layout/concept, but you could define a 'hover area' as you want independent from e.g. the image.


In this example the area is the #container (marked with green border):
