Any plans to release TransformAroundPointPlugin for JS? Anyone have an example of an element rotating around a fixed point in JS?

I am looking for this as well, though not sure if it would help me. I am looking to scale around a point for the pixijs TilingSprite.tileScale.

Howdy Mr. Makinson. Yeah, the whole "transform around point" thing is dependent on some matrix math and the ability to factor in various things like rotation, scale, skew, etc. I'm not very familiar with PixiJS (although I've heard nothing but great things, and I've seen wonderful demos), so I'm not in a position to explain exactly how to do it, but like Jamie said above, the capability is built into the CSSPlugin for DOM elements (including SVG). Does PixiJS provide access to the matrix of any object?

Hey Jack! Good to hear from you. Pixi does have a matrix included:




I was able to fake what I needed and it looks good. I just find myself looking towards "old reliable" ( read greensock ) when I need these things.  :)  

I am using pixi because I was getting choppiness using css transforms. So far so good! I just need to see if it runs how I want on a Chromebox

Excellent. Glad you got things working well. Let us know how it goes on the other devices. I've seen some AMAZING performance with PixiJS and GSAP on mobile devices. I was pretty shocked, especially compared to normal DOM stuff. 


By the way, I didn't see in the Pixi docs where you actually get/set matrix values on DisplayObjects. Got any idea?

I completely missed that you had asked about the matrix setting. I also don't see a way from the docs, but I do notice that on github it shows that they changed the api to take a matrix for PIXI.RenderTexture. I'll have to search around the source at some point to see where else its used.

Yeah, please let us know if you find something that serves as a matrix getter/setter.
