Hi, I am working with throwprops plugin maybe you can help. I was refrencing the following



Is there a way to make this work on drag using draggable. Essentailly I do not want the child elements to rotate.


I would not want any child element to rotate, no matter the position.


Check out my prototype here



Trying to make it work with this. I also need to show a different image every so many degrees based upon how many images are loaded. but that is an other story

Welcome to the forums, @BigMattKush. And thanks for being a Club GreenSock member!


The link you provided to the codepen appears to be invalid (404 error), so I'm not quite sure how to answer your question. Can you provide a valid link so we can see what's going on?

Alright, this was a fun challenge, so I forked your codepen and created this:

If I understood your goal, it covers all the bases. I wrote a function for you that you can just feed an array of URLs into and it'll distribute them around the edge of the circle evenly, and counter-rotate them. I wired up the Draggable so that its rotation simply updates the main timeline that's doing the circle and image rotations, so it's very performant (no need to keep re-creating tweens or setting new values each time). I even made the original spin resume after the throw completes, but it gradually speeds up to normal over the course of a second (so that it wasn't jarring). 




Does that help?

Project is still in development but here it is - - https://duffscakemix.zentropy.us/


It also takes nth number of images and calculates what to show. I have given the client the ability to load multiple images in the wordpress dashboard.
