Recommended Posts

I have to say that greensock have become a great library to use in animations and i thank you for that ♥

 

but i have a question what is the difference between using TweenLight & TweenMax and Timeline ?

 

what is the benefits from Each one of them and what i can use in each Tween ?

 

i have read some of the documentary but i cannot understand each difference between each other .

Hi,

 

TweenLite and TweenMax are tools in older versions of GSAP. The short answer is TweenMax had more features than TweenLite. TimelineMax and TimelineLite (also old) provided ways of sequencing multiple tweens. Unless you are updating an old legacy project you probably shouldn't bother learning them.

 

Things ARE MUCH LESS confusing in GSAP 3. 

 

If you want to get started with GSAP 3, my beginner's course is totally free right now. https://www.creativecodingclub.com//courses/FreeGSAP3Express

If you stick to learning from resources made after November 2019 (including Carl's helpful course linked above) or any of the official GreenSock learning resources (like the Getting Started article and documentation) you should be good to go in terms of using the most modern version and syntax and the features included.
