smooth gsap easing in the start and at the end but not in between

Go to solution Solved by OSUblake,

Hi Gsaps!

i created a nice mouse over / leave effect and i am nearly happy with it. As you can see the transition between infinite loop part and start and end tween has some glitches. any idea how to improve it?

cheers

Hey! 

Common practice for mouseover/leave is usually play and reverse. Does this help or are you trying to achieve something different?

I jumped the gun a bit here. If you're trying to have an infinite loop with a smooth ease out then maybe like this would be better?

the timescale example is what i was looking for. in the start there is smooth easing, in the middle(during hover) an infinite loop and at the end it kinds of fades out with easing. thanks @OSUblake – but i like the code more of @cassie 2nd codepen as i need to be sure to trigger animation for the current element if there are multiple with same classes at once. so this is my final code:

$(".btn-rotated").mouseover((e) => {
    gsap.to(e.currentTarget, {
      duration: 5,
      ease: "none",
      rotation: "-=360deg",
      repeat: -1
    });
}).mouseleave((e) => {
    gsap.to(e.currentTarget, {
      duration: 2,
      ease: "power.out",
      rotation: "-=50deg",
      overwrite: true
    });
});

only thing whats missing is the smooth easing start.

Yeah, that's what loops are for. 😉

 

gsap.utils.toArray(".btn-rotated").forEach(btn => {
  
  const animation = gsap.to(btn, {
    paused: true,
    rotation: 360,
    repeat: -1,
    ease: "none",
    duration: 5
  }).timeScale(0);
  
  btn.addEventListener("mouseenter", () => {
    animation.play();
    gsap.to(animation, {
      timeScale: 1,
      duration: 1,
      overwrite: true
    });
  });
  
  btn.addEventListener("mouseleave", () => {
    gsap.to(animation, {
      timeScale: 0,
      duration: 1,
      overwrite: true,
      onComplete() {
        animation.pause();
      }
    });
  });
});
