Using SVGs for gsap fireworks type of animation

Recommended Posts

Hi there .. I took a hiatus from using Greensock and am coming back into it again. Just got into the Creative Coding Club. wooo!

My question:  I want to create an explosion much like this demo from Greensock

but I want to use SVGs (or even PNGs) instead of objects created by the JS or even CSS. I want to even know if it's even possible before I begin.
The effect I want to achieve is an explosion of say, for example, cookies (because they aren't circles with one color) or perhaps a coin, where there one or 2 or 3 cookie/coin SVGs which would explode upward like the demo above.

Since it's been a while that I've used the API, and I really haven't found any examples online yet using GSAP, I just want to know if it's possible to use images instead of JS generated elements with simply a defined color and diameter. Any guidance is greatly appreciated!

Welcome back, @coco!


Absolutely that's possible. You can use <img> elements or SVG or whatever - GSAP doesn't really care. It can animate literally anything that JavaScript can touch. 


Have fun!
