Hi I'm looking to start out with GSAP for a project.


I am building a parallax scrolling site with animated elements as the user scrolls down the page.


My approach is to use a framework for the repsonsive layout, an existing jquery script for the parallax scrolling and GSAP for animating the more complex animations work?


Is this a logical approach or should I be looking for a more GSAP focussed approach? My concerns is taking too much on with GSAP as I have time constraints.


II would be grateful of your thoughts.

Hi and welcome to the GreenSock forums.


You could try superscollorama by John Polacek, a jQuery plugin that uses GSAP. Is not very hard to use and you can get some really good results, even with simple animations. You can check it here:




As for starting with GSAP you should check this links:








Those are the basics to getting your fingers wet with GSAP and also check all the samples of the GreenSock collection in codepen.

Hi Rodrigo,


Thank you for your response. Your advice is most helpful.


I had chose fullpage.js as it does what I need, however If I can get the same results with superscollorama then I'll go for that and keep things consistant. Although saying that I have just visited it the site on an ipad and it doesn't appear to behave!


Thank you very much for the links I have a lot of digging to do!!


My end goal is to produce something similar to the BeoplayH6 site so I've got some work to do!
