play to a "label" in a scrubbed timeline, and update de scroll position

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I have a serious problem that I can't solve.

I need to add buttons to my animation to go back to markers in time. But as my animation is scrolltriggered with scrub:true , when I play the timeline to the labeled time, I get an offset between the animation and the scroll position.


Is it possible to solve it?

Thank you very much

Hye @goooon


If you want the scroll-animation to be played on that click AND the scroll-position to be updated you should best just auto-scroll to the position you want - you can use GSAP's scrollTo-Plugin for that.


What I would recommend is not making the duration of your ScrollTrigger dependent on some height (which you do by setting the end to '+=600%') but making it dependend on width instead - maybe something like end: "+=" + (window.innerWidth*6) because that will make it way easier for you to get the right position to scrollTo.


Here is how you could do it

I guess I was not thinking straight there, so I gotta correct myself a bit here.

Of course you could also leave it at end: '+=600%' and just use the window's innerHeight as a base for the scrollTo-tween.
