Hey there,


Im trying to set up a simple animation for a child and parent div set up like so;



<div id="content">
        <img src="logo.png" id="myLogoImg">


The content div has a background that I would like to autoAlpha up from 0 then bring my myLogoImg up after a 1 second delay. The problem Im having is that I can only ever seem to tween one or the other not both.


my tweens look like this



TweenLite.from(document.getElementById("myLogoImg"),  3, {delay:0,css:{autoAlpha:0}});
TweenLite.from(document.getElementById("content"),  3, {delay:3,css:{autoAlpha:0}});


Am I going about this in the wrong way? My thanks in advance.

Hmmm looks like switching to alpha worked out.


TweenLite.from(content,  1, {delay:0,css:{alpha:0}});
TweenLite.from(document.getElementById("myLogoImg"),  1, {delay:1,css:{alpha:0}});

Wait, are you saying that if you autoAlpha:0 myLogoImg, it changes the "visibility" property of "content" too? I'm a little confused. Which is the parent? You flip-flopped the order in your last two posts, so it's tough to tell. If you autoAlpha:0 the parent, it would of course also hide the child. Maybe it'd help if you posted a very simple HTML page that demonstrates the problem?
