Animate CC/GSAP Tweening root movieclip & nested movieclip concurrently

Warning: Please note

This thread was started before GSAP 3 was released. Some information, especially the syntax, may be out of date for GSAP 3. Please see the GSAP 3 migration guide and release notes for more information about how to update the code to GSAP 3's syntax.

I'm wanting to tween the x position of a movieclip on the root timeline and while that root clip is tweening I'm wanting to tween the x position of a movieclip nested inside that main movieclip. However I can't get the nested clip to tween at the same time.

If I comment out the root mc tween, the nested tween works. There are no timeline tweens and all the clips live on 1 frame.

Is there anything obvious that I'm missing here that would break the nested tween?

Here's a snippet of code that lives in the root, it's not wrapped in a function:

t.to(this.scene_front, 4.5, {x:"-=220"});
t.to(this.scene_front.fox_walking, 3.5, {x:"+=200"});

This should work, you just need to adjust the timing. If it's TimelineLite, they happen in sequence until you subtract some time from the 2nd tween.

Yeah if this were just pure code I'd have no issues. I'm posting regarding GSAP in Animate CC, is there any 'watch out' that I'm missing here?

TL Lite works the same in Animate CC, but you can't use CSS selectors like I did. You might have problems if you're trying to tween something on the Animate CC timeline at the same time that GSAP code is moving it, so pick one or the other.

I figured it out, I had to update Animate CC 1 whole .1 version, fixed everything.
