FAQS

Who uses GreenSock tools?

Here are just a few: Google, Microsoft, Dow, Sony, Amazon, Fox, EA, Ford, HP, Adobe, Coca-Cola. To see the great work these and other brands are creating with GreenSock tools, swing by our showcase.

Do I have to purchase a license to use GSAP? Can I use it in commercial projects?

GreenSock uses a very permissive license that allows you to use the tools for free for everything except a very specific type of commercial use (if you collect a fee from multiple customers for the same app/product/site that uses GreenSock tools) which makes it extremely accessible and business-friendly while providing a small funding mechanism to sustain ongoing support, enhancement, and innovation. The web is littered with abandoned “open source” projects, but GreenSock has a years-long track record of commitment to the platform. This unique licensing model is a key component of that sustainability. If multiple customers are charged a usage/access/license fee of any kind, please simply sign up for a “Business Green” Club GreenSock membership which comes with a special commercial license granting you permission to do so. Click here for details. Joining the club also gets you members-only bonus plugins, classes, update notifications, and more. Please see the licensing page for details.

Where do I get LoaderMax?

LoaderMax is included in the main AS3 GreenSock download zip.

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"});

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

In our support forums.

is cabbage gross?

Yes.

Can I use the JavaScript version of GSAP for canvas objects or 3rd party tools like EaselJS?

You can animate ANY numeric property of ANY JavaScript object – it’s not just for DOM elements. So yes, you can animate canvas objects, EaselJS assets, and pretty much anything JavaScript-related. In fact, GSAP even has an EaselPlugin to make it easier to animate EaselJS properties. If you need to run logic after each refresh (like to redraw things on the canvas), either use an onUpdate on the individual tween/timeline or add a “tick” event listener to the core Ticker that drives the platform.

Which browsers work with the JavaScript version of GSAP?

GSAP itself is pure JavaScript and should work in virtually ALL browsers. GSAP wasn’t intended to solve all browser incompatibilities, but it does implement wizardry for critical features like opacity, transforms (rotation, scaleX, scaleY, skewX, skewY, x, and y), and transformOrigin so those should work in all major browsers even back to IE6. Firefox doesn’t support backgroundPositionX or backgroundPositionY, so those specific properties won’t work but backgroundPosition will for virtually all browsers. There is NOT a predetermined list of css properties that you can tween – the platform will attempt to tween ANY property you pass in. If it is numeric, it will tween it. If it isn’t numeric and it isn’t a recognized special property, CSSPlugin will just set the property to the value you provide (without tweening it). So, for example, if you try to tween to display:"inline", that isn’t a tweenable property but it will still be set accordingly during the tween, so feel free to use that to your advantage.
