  1. PS Here's your AI file with the Copy/Paste solution applied. https://codepen.io/PointC/pen/jObNjBo
  2. @OSUblake is showing an excellent solution there. I highly recommend it. 👍 If you do want to tame the Adobe Illustrator beast, here's a little trick. I made a simple blue rectangle on a background white rectangle. I then converted the blue one to a compound path and added an extra random point on each side. You can see the AI result: Now when I use export I get this: <svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" width="600" height="400" viewBox="0 0 600 400"> <title>rectTest</title> <g id="Layer_1" data-name="Layer 1"> <rect width="600" height="400" fill="#fff"/> </g> <g id="Layer_2" data-name="Layer 2"> <path d="M525,325H75V75H525V325Z" fill="#29abe2"/> </g> </svg> My 4 extra points are now gone. Adobe Illustrator is sooooo helpful. 🙄 But if I select my two rectangles and go up to the top menu and choose Copy and then paste everything into my code editor, I get this: <svg version="1.1" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" x="0px" y="0px" width="600px" height="400px" viewBox="0 0 600 400" style="enable-background:new 0 0 600 400;" xml:space="preserve"> <style type="text/css"> .st0{fill:#FFFFFF;} .st1{fill:#29ABE2;} </style> <defs> </defs> <g> <rect class="st0" width="600" height="400"/> </g> <path class="st1" d="M525,325H351.6H75v-74.9V75h220.3H525v78.2V325z"/> </svg> Ah-ha. My 4 extra points on the blue rectangle path remain. It requires a little more clean-up for the CSS, but it will prevent AI from being too helpful. Just my two cents. Happy morphing.
  3. Yep - same here. AI does not like it. There is something funky about that SVG. My advice would be to start fresh with a new vector file. Be sure to use a background square the same same size as your SVG so you don't get any of those unnecessary transforms. Exactly this. As amazing as the morph plugin is, if you can help it along with the same number of points, you'll get buttery smooth morphs with no surprises. That's exactly what I did for every single letter on this demo. https://codepen.io/PointC/pen/yPbYRY
  4. Wow. I had to check the date on this one. How'd that get missed almost three years ago? And how did @ZachSaucier discover it today? 🤔
  5. Maybe I'm not understanding the desired outcome, but it sounds similar to the question you asked here: There are numerous threads around the forum with vertical line drawing. Some use ScrollMagic while others don't use any plugins. You can use the forum search feature to find several of them. Here are a few to get you started. Hopefully that helps. Happy tweening.
  6. There are a whole bunch of DNA demos on CodePen that should give you some ideas. https://codepen.io/search/pens?q=dna If you have specific GSAP related problems or questions as you progress with your project, we're happy to help.
  7. Welcome to the forum. I'm not sure what you're asking here. I don't see any animation in your demo. We're happy to help with any GSAP specific questions. Could you elaborate a bit about what you're trying to do? Thanks.
  8. Many of the core tools are loaded with gsap. Then you just load the plugins you need. Check out the docs for a 'what's included' grid here: https://greensock.com/docs/ You can also view the Loading Section of the Getting Started Guide here: I understand you want to target each layer. My point was that you can group those elements and target them via a loop or stagger. They don't actually each need an ID to make that happen. Hopefully that helps.
  9. I guess if you're using the old syntax, it would say TimelineMax is not defined. But I assumed you were using the new syntax which would result in gsap not defined. In either case, I'm not able to help much.
  10. I'm not much of a WordPress user but that error strikes me as odd. You're loading gsap 3.2.6, but the error says TimelineMax is not defined? I would have expected the error to say gsap is not defined. I wish I could be of more help, but I just don't have a WP background. Maybe someone with more WordPress expertise will pop up with some ideas. There are other threads about this topic throughout the forum too. If you use the search feature, you should find some additional info that may be helpful.
  11. I think this thread can help.
  12. I'm not 100% sure what you're asking. It sounds like you read my thread here: If you're trying to animate the same way as your example pen, I'd think it would come down to proper grouping. A lot of the flame elements seem to move as one group so you wouldn't need to name or directly animate each one. You could rotate the group as one unit, stagger each flame, etc. Does that help? I'm also not sure what this means. Do you mean where you install your GSAP scripts? If you have specific GSAP questions, we're happy to help. Happy tweening.
  13. I guess it's not enough to keep GSAP up to date and bug free. Now PixiJS adds a degree of difficulty with surprise changes. That's why Jack makes the big bucks.
  14. Not sure if it'll help but you could try tint instead of fillColor. https://codepen.io/PointC/pen/MWwMYyG Just a thought. Happy tweening.
  15. There's @mikel just horsing around during a global pandemic. 🤣
