Scrolltrigger: How to Activate Function without GSDevTools

Go to solution Solved by Carl,

Recommended Posts

I'm working my way through @Carl's creative coding club and have started combining code from the lessons as part of a larger project.


I'm able to animate split text via scrolltrigger but I am unable to do so without including GSDevTools which generates a playhead at the bottom of the page. I've tried removing "GSDevTools.create({animation:tl})" and calling the animation strictly through ScrollTrigger but this breaks.


Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.


function init() {
  gsap.set("#block-load", { autoAlpha: 1 });
  split.lines.forEach((line, index) => {
    let chars = new SplitText(line, { type: "chars" });
      { duration: 0.3, yPercent: 100, stagger: 0.04 },
  start: "center 85%",
  end: "top top",
  markers: true,
  animation: tl,
  trigger: "#block-load"


 window.addEventListener("load", init)

great to see you applying what you learned in the courses to your own projects!


I didn't have any trouble removing the GSDevTools line.


However, I don't think you want that position parameter of ">-50%"


see if this works for you

for others watching. the animation in question was the text "testing testing testing" near the bottom.

it seems like it is being triggered properly now

Thank you! Greensock is a lot to handle for a newbie like me but your courses are a great help.


Thanks again!
