I want to manipulate my img when its going backward/forward for example like this, is this possible?

if(yoyo is moving forward){


my current code is like this:

  const tween = gsap.timeline()
      duration: 5,
      ease: "linear",
      motionPath: {
        path: "#cart_path",
        align: "#cart_path",
        autoRotate: true,
        alignOrigin: [0.5, 1],
      repeat: -1,
      yoyo: true,

Thanks in advance :)

Welcome to the forum @tahirw


I'm not sure if there is a dedicated method for that, but what you could do is use the .iteration() to determine wether the yoyo is moving 'forwards' or 'backwards'.


// e.g. in an onRepeat callback

onRepeat: function() {
  if (this.iteration() % 2 === 0) {
    console.log('yoyo is moving backwards')
  } else {
    console.log('yoyo is moving forwards')
