Gsap 3 - return animation to start without delay

How can I return my animation to start point without any animation after the effect? 


on example my h1 go right stay there 1-2 sec and back to left - How can I eliminate that delay

and How can I return immediately to start point without animation 

Thanks for you help!!

It isn't staying there for 1-2 seconds in your demo - it's an illusion caused by the fact that you're using a "power4.out" ease which makes it slow WAY down at the end. If you change that ease to "none", for example, you'll see the change in direction is immediate. 


To make it jump back to the very start of the animation once it completes, you can use an onComplete to basically "rewind" it like this:

There are actually a bunch of ways you could do it, but I don't want to overcomplicate things by listing them all out. 


Does that clear things up?

To add to @GreenSock's excellent advice...


The ease curve (Power4) you chose gets very flat at the end making the rate of change so small that it appears the animation has delayed.


This video should help you understand how ease curves work


If you want to reset the position of the h1 after it moves to the right, this is a great time to use a timeline. A timeline allows you to sequence multiple animations. 


With a timeline you can add a set() to a timeline to set the h1's position back to 0

Obviously GreenSock's suggestion works great with just one tween. Being that the GSAP API is so robust and packed with features there are often many ways to do the same thing.
