Combine MotionPath with DrawSVG

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to combine MotionPath with DrawSVG in the sense that I have a div that I want it to be placed on the tip where the svg path is drawing (like the div is drawing the lines. Is this possible? thanks in advance!

I think I've somewhat did it with

var line1 = MotionPathPlugin.convertToPath("#line1", false);
  gsap.to("#dot", {
  duration: 2, 
  ease: "linear",
    path: line1[0],
    align: "#line1",
    //autoRotate: true,
    alignOrigin: [0.5, 0.5],
    offsetX: 138,
    offsetY: 0

but it requires offsetX and Y, I thought that it would align out of the box, is there something wrong with what I'm doing?

That's definitely easier with a full path rather than individual lines. That being said, you can animate the target between motion paths fairly easily. I wrote tutorials about how to do it with handwriting, but it would apply to any set of paths.


Maybe you'll find some helpful info in the tuts.

Happy tweening.

@mikel Thanks for the help, one more thing if you don't mind, is there a way to control the pace of the animation using mouse wheel scroll? I believe gsap recently launched a new plugin but not sure if it can be combined with DrawSVG.
