Unexpected ease with SplitText

Recommended Posts

Can someone tell me why my ease is not easing as expected?

Obviously I wanted a "expo.inOut". But he's showing me a weird ease out.


Thanks in advance!

Thanks, but no. This easing is defining the easing of every single character, right? I want to give an ease to the whole stagger.


Documentation says: "The ease that distributes the start times of the animation. So "power2" would start out with bigger gaps and then get more tightly clustered toward the end. Default: "none"."

Sorry, I looked at that too quickly.


It looks correct to me. I adjusted the fork a bit. I boosted the stagger amount to 10 so you can clearly see the letters start and end quickly and really slow down in the middle.

PS You'd want use either 'each' or 'amount' in the stagger object. Not both.

With the ease.inOut I expected a slow start, a fast middle sector and an slow ending. Why am I wrong? 🤔


And good point! I was wondering which property is 'in charge' when using an 'each' and an conflicting 'amount'. 😏

I know it feels a little backwards, right? Rather than go into a long winded explanation of the distribution of start times based on the ease curve, I'll let Professor @Carl's video take care of that for us. After you watch this, you should be able to visualize what's happening with your animation.


Happy tweening.

thanks for posting the video, Craig. I actually needed a refresher myself.
