We're excited to announce several new features in the GreenSock Animation Platform (GSAP) 1.12.0 that will increase not only "real" performance, but "perceived" performance as well. The innovative lagSmoothing() feature allows GSAP to automatically heal from CPU spikes that cause lag, all while maintaining perfect synchronization between all animations. And the new "lazy" rendering helps avoid layout thrashing when many animations start simultaneously.
I'm going to take a deeper look into CSS Animations and how they fit (or don't fit) into a modern animator's workflow. You'll see exactly where some of the pain points are for a typical project and how they can bring your workflow to a grinding halt.
“ The GreenSock animation platform is one of the most useful sets of tools in existence when it comes to web animation. ”
“ There is no doubt that GreenSock is currently the best available tool for creating astonishing interactive websites and animation effects. ”
“ Aside from GreenSock’s laser-focused attention to detail, GSAP is fast, reliable, flexible, exceptional value (read: free in most cases) and, very importantly, supported. ”
“ After searching around the web for alternatives, I found GreenSock to be the most performant. ”
“ If every library were as robust and reliable as GreenSock’s, the world would be a much better place for software engineers and their clients. I can't think of a better designed or better performing tool, and as a bonus, it's fun as heck to play with. ”
“ GSAP and CSS Transitions: I've done both, and its like comparing an F16 to a horse. Take like 10 minutes to try. ”

“ GSAP was a revelation for me to be compared with the introduction of jQuery ”

“ This stuff is so incredibly amazing I can't believe it. The level of details and options put into these things and the natural instinct GreenSock has for solving everyday problems is impressive. ”

“ No other animation library is as intuitive, rigorous, conceptually simple and well curated as GreenSock’s ”
