FAQS

Where do I get LoaderMax?

LoaderMax is included in the main AS3 GreenSock download zip.

Does Draggable use CSS3 animations or transitions for the motion?

Nope. CSS3 transitions and animations have some significant limitations that make them ill-suited for the type of motion that these tools require, so highly optimized JavaScript is used instead. In order to tap into GPU compositing, 3D transforms are used when possible (in browsers that support them) and updates are made using requestAnimationFrame (when available) for maximum efficiency. See for yourself in Chrome Dev Tools - you should see very snappy performance in the timeline. Many other tools like jQuery UI use top/left properties for positioning which don't generally perform as well. These tools have been fully "GreenSocked" so performance is smoking fast, just like the core tweening engine.

Can I distribute GreenSock files as a part of my Work Product?

Yes, as long as the source files are unaltered (including copyright notices therein). Your customer may use GreenSock tools (including bonus plugins/classes you got with your membership) only as a part of your Work Product. However, if your customer wants to use the GreenSock tools outside of your Work Product (or make customizations to your Work Product) to resell to their customers, they would need to get their own "Business Green" Club GreenSock membership to cover their usage. If your Work Product is given away freely and you're not distributing members-only plugins, you're golden...er, green...er, fine.

Where can I report a bug, feature request, or rave about my tweening adventures with GSAP?

In our support forums.

For how long must I maintain my membership?

You may cancel anytime. You'll simply lose access to updates to the bonus plugins/tools and if you're a Business Green member, your commercial license would expire at that point. You should keep it active as long you are selling/licensing your product to multiple end users. Work Products that you sold in the past do not suddenly fall out of compliance when your membership lapses – you just can't continue to sell products that use GreenSock tools after your membership expires. If you don't want to worry about the license expiring, you can simply get a permanent license. Oh, and we don't add any code into the members-only plugins that would make them suddenly stop working when your membership expires. They'll continue to work.

What if I need to send variables to the server along with my request in a loader?

The first parameter of the various loaders (ImageLoader, XMLLoader, SWFLoader, MP3Loader, etc.) accepts either a simple String URL or a URLRequest. So if you want to pass data to the server, simply construct a URLRequest accordingly, like:

var request:URLRequest = new URLRequest("http://www.yourDomain.com/whatever.php");
var data:URLVariables = new URLVariables();
data.exampleSessionId = new Date().getTime();
data.exampleUserLabel = "label1";
request.data = data;
request.method = URLRequestMethod.POST;
var loader:ImageLoader = new ImageLoader(request, {name:"image1"});

What browsers does Draggable support?

Pretty much every major browser is supported including Chrome, Firefox, Opera, iOS, Android and IE even back to version 9! We're not aware of any significant browsers that don't work, but please let us know if you stumble across an issue.

Is there a limit to the number of projects I can use GreenSock tools in as a “Business Green” member?

No. The commercial license that comes with “Business Green” Club GreenSock memberships applies to an unlimited number of apps/sites/software/games that your organization sells while the membership is active (see the license agreement for specifics). Please be sure, however, to get the appropriate membership level based on the number of developers associated with your organization.
