Let me congratulate GreenSock for the hard work and success.


My question is, how to do next and previous in TimelineMax. ?


I am able to play,pause,reverse and resume but how to go to the next/previous frame of the animation?


any help will be highly appreciated.

To be clear, the default mode in GSAP is time-based, not frames-based. That's a very good thing because it ensures that timing is consistent even if the CPU gets bogged down. However, if you set useFrames:true on your TimelineMax, then it is indeed frames-based. You could iterate through the frames with seek() or pause() like:


tl.pause(); //pause it once, then use seek()
tl.seek( tl.time() + 1); //goes forward one frame
tl.seek( tl.time() - 1); //goes backward one frame


Does that answer your question?
