  1. Thanks for the reply Zach. I definitely know the benefits of GSAP and the price is excellent for what's included, but I'm not the one who would be paying the bill
  2. I'm looking to use svg shape morphs (a heart morphing into a thumbs-up icon) on a standard banner ad. Does anyone know the size of the MorphSVG.js file and if Google even allows that library to run in banner ads on Double-Click? While the cost a Business Green license is not expensive, I still have to consider if it's worth it to get a license because I'm likely only going to use MorphSVG as a one off. Are there any other considerations when including MorphSVG.js in a standard banner?
  3. Your question doesn't really relate to Greensock, specifically. It's more of a JavaScript / HTML question. From the link below, it looks like you can add / remove classes on page load using JavaScript. The behaviour will be reset if the end user clears their browser cache. https://teamtreehouse.com/community/use-javascript-to-animate-only-once

    Animate CC and GSAP

    Animate only helps you do the layout of all the assets. You still need to write GSAP code.

    Animate CC and GSAP

    If you must use a graphical tool you could try out Google Web Designer. Not the most full-featured tool out there especially compared to Adobe Animate, but it is free. If you want someone to look at your project, you'll either need to host it on your own web-site or copy it to DropBox, Google Drive, etc. and share a link to it.
  6. Yeah, I seldom see rich-media ads anymore. I guess marketers feel that the ROI is no longer there to develop and traffic these ads.
  7. I know that 970x250 is a standard IAB ad. I was referring to having the ad start in the expanded state and then the user clicks a button to display the collapsed state. I haven't come across any rich-media ads like this. The only rich-media ads I've made thus far open in the collapsed (or smaller) state and the the user clicks a button to expand it to a larger state.
  8. Has anyone come across a collapsable ad unit like this? https://onecreative.aol.com/view/public?ids=420584&keys=11e21a9d1a854e7eb97df74f90a9c15f&secure=true where the ad starts in the expanded state and when the user presses the Close Ad button, the collapsed state appears. Verizon seems to have developed this proprietary ad specification: https://adspecs.verizonmedia.com/adformats/displayads/970x250-billboard/ I think the idea is to have the ad move up and out of the way of web-page content. Google's expandable ads work differently in that they start in the collapsed state and the user initiates the expanded state. I have duplicated the expand / collapse functions with a Google provided template using Google Web Designer. I did have to "hack" that template so that the ad starts expanded and the user can initiate the collapsed state though. However, my media company has rejected my ad a number of times because it shows up as a 970x31 (the collapsed state dimensions) whey they expect the expanded (970x250) dimensions. I assume that I have to change my ad dimensions in CSS, but wanted to see what everyone thinks before I mess around aimlessly.
  9. Try reaching out to Petr Tichy on Twitter: https://twitter.com/ihatetomatoes I learned so much from his YouTube videos. He wrote the Greensock cheat sheet and a number of courses. He used to do web-site deconstruction videos, but haven't seen him post in months. So he's likely very busy.
  10. Unless you have a very compelling reason for using Flash / Animate, I'd recommend that you learn to hand-code banners vs relying on the often buggy Adobe software and the CreateJS plugin. Learning to hand-code is certainly daunting at first, but once you get the hang of it you'll wonder why you were relying on clunky software.
  11. Banner ads usually need to meet IAB standards: https://iabcanada.com/content/uploads/files/IABCanada-AdGuidelines-English.pdf All animations must typically stop at 30 seconds, but 15 seconds is recommended.
  12. There is a GSAP snippet for VSCode: https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=hridoy.gsap-snippets that will complete a block of code for you. You only need to replace the parameters. Once you gain a mastery of the syntax you likely won't need the snippet. Also have a look at https://ihatetomatoes.net/get-greensock-101/ for an excellent and free GSAP course.
  13. VSCode aka Visual Studio Code is a free code editor by Microsoft, but it is not the same as Visual Studio. The latter is an Integrated Development Environment, which is overkill for most JavaScript projects.
  14. Most dedicated code-editors have some form of auto-formatting and / or JavaScript error checking . VSCode has it built in, but there are extensions for Sublime, etc. These auto-formatters should be able to catch typos, invalid or too many parameters, wrong brackets, etc.
  15. I don't get why you would need to make your own tool because there are already many paid and free Powerpoint like web applications out there like Prezi. These apps should be able to output to PPT and PPTX, but they might not be able to transfer animations. Remember that PowerPoint is closed off so it will take a lot of experimentation / hacking to get everything working.
