Animated nested divs within the pinned section

Go to solution Solved by OSUblake,

Hey guys,


I've been trying to get something really basic going, but been struggling for a couple hours.  


I have my pinned section: .test-section.


My pinned section has a bunch of children that I would like to animate as you scroll. At the moment it seems like I can only see the first child within the pinned section. Preferably, I would like to this dynamically.  So for each div.content inside .test-section, animates.


From my codepen you can see that it's only animating the first div and I'm not sure how to get the rest to show up. 


Any ideas?

Hi invrt,


You are nesting ScrollTriggers inside your timeline which is a big mistake.


You should only have 1 ScrollTrigger per timeline.

  scrollTrigger: {


Outside of that, I'm not exactly sure what you are going for here as your other content sections are not even visible because of your CSS, so animating y 100 is not going to do much.




Have you check out or ScrollTrigger demos page? Perhaps there is something similar to what you are trying to achieve on there.




There are also a bunch of demos listed on the ScrollTrigger docs. And we have some ScrollTrigger collections on CodePen.

Hi Blake,


This one here is like 90% of the solution I guess?

Though, I don't really want to use bodyScrollbar stuff,  or the picture on the side. Just want the words with opacity animated.
