I am looping through a load of data to build up several assets (images and text).


They are all added to tweens and then timelines, and are currently all visible on the page.


I need to make sure that they are not visible until their respective timeline actually plays. I tried using immediateRender:false but that didn't seem to do anything.


I cannot rely on the assets having their opacity set to 0, as it may be the case the animation doesnt require the asset to behave that way.


So, I need a way to make sure my assets are "hidden" after they are created and added to tweens, then timelines.

You can set their visibility to hidden on creation

TweenLite.set(elem, {visibility:"hidden"});

Inside your timeline set the visibility to "visible" with immediateRender:false

timeline.set(elem, {visibility:"visible", immediateRender:false})

if you can't get it working please provide a very simple codepen or jsfiddle example. We don't need to see any complex data parsing... the simpler the better.
