Including MorphSVG with Standard Banner Ads

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to use svg shape morphs (a heart morphing into a thumbs-up icon) on a standard banner ad. Does anyone know the size of the MorphSVG.js file and if Google even allows that library to run in banner ads on Double-Click? While the cost a Business Green license is not expensive, I still have to consider if it's worth it to get a license because I'm likely only going to use MorphSVG as a one off. 


Are there any other considerations when including MorphSVG.js in a standard banner?

MorphSVGPlugin is 16kb minified (not gzipped). Google allows scripts in Double-Click ads, yes. 


In terms of whether or not it's worth it, it's up to you :) You've been around a few years, you know how useful GSAP is. You could spend your time worrying about how to morph from one SVG shape to another in every browser (which is especially complex if you have a different number of points per shape) or you could let GSAP do that for you and just focus on the fun, money-making parts :) 


Keep in mind that with a membership you can use GSAP on an unlimited number of projects! Also, if you're the only developer and are not selling this ad to multiple clients, you would only need the Shockingly Green membership. 


Our entire licensing model (which you can read more about) is based on the honor system and a simple number-of-developers pricing structure. We don’t require that you “register" each person or project, nor do we inject “phone home” scripts that report usage or suddenly cause things to stop working if your license expires. We extend respect to our users and trust that it'll be reciprocated. Thus far, it has worked well. We’ve been doing this for a decade now with no plans to stop. 


We’re pretty confident you’ll find that the license pays for itself very quickly when you consider the time it saves you, the added capabilities, performance, reliability, etc. Typically our customers find that it pays for itself literally in a matter of days (or weeks at the most). But if you’re not happy we’ll gladly issue a full refund. We’re passionate about having happy customers around here.

Thanks for the reply Zach. I definitely know the benefits of GSAP and the price is excellent for what's included, but I'm not the one who would be paying the bill :D
