Dear All,


I love Gsap and I am working on a website full of animations using Gsap. 


Gsap is awesome!


Recently I ran into a new problem, I am not able to do 3D transform for an <image> element in my SVG


I have looked into many threads in here, and this one too:

I am not sure what I have missed, but I am quite sure Gsap can do the 3D transform of it.


Guys, please help me out. Thank you so much.


Wish you All have a wonderful Friday.

Sorry, the current SVG spec doesn't allow 3D transforms on child elements. SVG 2.0 probably will. For now you can rotate the whole SVG all you want.


Hopefully that helps. Happy tweening.

Dear Point C,


Thank you so much for your reply.


may I ask if there is something from gasp instead of can do this flipping besides 3D transform?


Thank you and wish you have a happy weekend.

I'd recommend rotating the whole SVG or just using a regular DOM div/image instead of putting the image in the SVG. That being said, you can use scaleX:-1 which looks kind of like a y rotation. You could try this:


.to($('#hello'), 1, {scaleX:-1, transformOrigin:"center center", ease:Back.easeOut}, "helloGsapTLStart+=1");


That might work for your needs. Happy tweening.
