Don't know how to incorporate multiple animations for one variable in nest timelines.

Recommended Posts

I am having problem to understand how to bind multiple animations into one variable which is in nest timelines.

 

What I would like to achieve is a looping variables like this codepen:

But with multiple animations for one/first variable (box1Timeline) like this, mentioned by @OSUblake

 

Kindly assist, thank you!

You had undefined variables in your demo that is why it wasn't working. You should look into how to debug JavaScript. Again the videos I had suggested, they walk you through all the basic details about how you can chain animations and last two videos show advanced approach of using functions for complex animations.

@Sahil Thank you for the reference, I have a better understanding of how to run the animations.

 

Would you mind to have a look of my 2nd test pen? Kindly advise, if you have any comments, thank you!

GSAP part of your demo is correct, I don't see any issues.

 

You are redefining 'target 'variable by using 'var' which is incorrect, it will still work in most browsers but it can throw error in some rare cases. You can reuse same variable without using 'var', though it is better practice to use unique variables for each element.  Plus when you are using editor you will see squiggly lines telling you something is wrong in your code.

Hi @Susan

 

I would look at using functions to keep your code organized, reusable, and configurable.

Don't know if you had a chance to look at those videos that @Sahil shared with you, but that's what these ones go over.

Ya everything is correct except the callback. You can use repeat: -1 as follows instead of explicitly restarting timeline using callback. Congrats on getting it right, if you keep playing with timelines using different examples you will master it soon.
