I´m using the simpledemo.html as a reference, and I´m having trouble when trying to use the same animation in two different elements, see code below:



<div id="examples-1">
<h2 id="fade-it">Fade It</h2>
<h3 id="fade-it">Fade It</h3>
<h2 id="spin-it">Spin It</h2>
<h2 id="scale-it">Scale It</h2>
<h2 id="smush-it">Smush It</h2>
Note that the first <h2> tag and the <h3> tag should both fade in, but it makes the whole file stop working. I know that Ids should not be repeated, but, how can I use Fade in animation more than once in the same file?
Thanks in advance!

Hi and welcome to the GreenSock forums.


It looks like you are referring to the 3rd-party jquery plugin SuperScrollorama.

Using the same ID multiple times is going to cause problems as it is what you use to select unique elements.


Your code should look like this:



<h2 id="fade-it">Fade It</h2>
<h3 id="fade-it2">Fade It</h3>

controller.addTween('#fade-it', TweenMax.from( $('#fade-it'), .5, {css:{opacity: 0}}));
controller.addTween('#fade-it2', TweenMax.from( $('#fade-it2'), .5, {css:{opacity: 0}}));

If you wan to literally re-use an effect, you can create a function that returns a tween like so



function createMyFade(ID) {
     return TweenMax.from($(ID), .5, {opacity:0});

controller.addTween('#fade-it', createMyFade("#fade-it"));
controller.addTween('#fade-it2', createMyFade("#fade-it2")));
