Animating ::before Element on slides

Go to solution Solved by PointC,

Recommended Posts

Hello Community,
Please I need some assistances with Animating the ::before element on each slides. I tried but the text keeps coming before the ::before (Rectangle background) element.

 

I would like to make the rectangle comes first then the text over it second. The Text can start coming over it halfway when the rectangle enters the banner and reverse the flow on exit.

Hi @Chybosky :)

 

It'll be best to use CSS variables to animate pseudo elements. It gives you much more control. Here's a demo with the basics of how to do it.

Hopefully that helps. Happy tweening.

Thank you so much @PointC

This is the changes I made:

I have made the changes and I can separate the animation for both the text and the :after element but I have some issues that I encountered. One of the issues is  The ::after(background) element does not come first after the first slide passes. The second issue is with the SmoothScroller Script, I had some issues testing it on a live website. Please how can I resolve it.

Thank you

Looks like you're making one big timeline, but you're hard coding the text spans at 0.55. You probably want something more like this. 

 tl.to(slide.querySelector(".slider__header"), { "--scaleX": 1 });
 tl.from(slide.querySelector(".slider__header span"), { x: -50, autoAlpha: 0}, "<+=0.55");

My demo created individual timelines. Not that you can't make one big timeline, but my personal preference would be to create child timelines in the loop and add them to a parent. Makes it really easy to control and adjust the timeScale() of the parent.

I'm not seeing that being used in your demo, but you're not allowing vertical scrolling here so you'd want to take a look at some of the ScrollTrigger pinning demos.

 

One other minor note:

There are missing targets and you're loading two versions of GSAP.

 

Hopefully that helps. Happy tweening.

I really appreciate you help.

 

I'm really learning a lot about GSAP and loving it so much.
