Is it possible to create a timeline that after playing for the first time, when it repeats it starts from a different point in the timeline?

In the example below (CodePen included) I'd like the timeline to play through once from the start, and then after this when the repeat kicks in I'd like it to start from the "start" label.  It will basically remove the initial fading in off all the elements after the first play.

  var tl1 = new TimelineMax({repeat: -1});

        .to(".box", 2, {opacity: 1})
        .add("start")  	// would like animation to start from here when repeating
        .to("#box-1", 1, {scale: 0, ease:Power0.easeNone})
        .to("#box-2", 1, {scale: 0, ease:Power0.easeNone})
        .to("#box-3", 1, {scale: 0, ease:Power0.easeNone})
        .to("#box-4", 1, {scale: 0, ease:Power0.easeNone})


Many thanks

Hi @emilychews :)


You could do something like this:

 var tl1 = new TimelineMax({onComplete:function(){tl1.play("start")}});


See the Pen eMZNwP by PointC (@PointC) on CodePen


You could also make the fade tween a stand-alone tween and then onComplete play the main timeline. There are lots of possibilities.


Hopefully that helps. Happy tweening.
