I am getting the sentences to change color, but I want only one sentence changed at one time, but since they are on the same line the start and end is at the same point. I am a newbie to js and gsap. . Can anyone provide assistance?

Hi @Jessiu :)


Welcome to the forum.


Sounds like you're looking for the SplitTextPlugin.


That would allow you to split the text into lines and set up a ScrollTrigger for each one. The plugin is a perk for Club GreenSock members, but you can try it on CodePen for free.

Hopefully that helps. Happy tweening and welcome aboard.

That might help but I want the text broken up into sentences not each line. Not sure if that solves what I am looking for? The sentences are on the same line. Thank you.

Isn't that what your original demo is doing? Each <li> is triggering a color change. I don't follow your desired outcome. If you want the <li> elements to be on individual lines, you'll need to change your CSS and get rid of the display:inline.


ul#hometext li {
/*   display:inline; */

Okay, now I follow. Yeah - SplitText won't be the answer here.


I'd just set it up as one timeline, use the parent container as a trigger and set scrub to true.
