Is it possible to use scroll events to trigger resume and reverse for an animation? On default, I want the animation paused/stopped. When I scroll down (one swipe of mouse wheel or one click on scroll bar down), animation will resume 1 frame. And when scroll up, the reverse.

Hi and welcome to the Greensock forums.


There are two possibilities:


1.- Use John Polacek's superscrollorama. A great JQuery plugin to control tweens and timelines with scroll. It also supports touch events, check it here:



2.- Do everything by hand including add a library to support touch devices:



As you can see is not very complicated, just need to tap into jQuery's scroll() event, the tricky part comes with the element's offsets, specially in dynamic pages.
