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.
“ GSAP makes my job fun, because it allows me to focus on creating rich, engaging web experiences, while GSAP handles much of the implementation details behind the scenes. ”
“ The GreenSock animation platform is one of the most useful sets of tools in existence when it comes to web animation. ”
“ I am more and more amazed every day, and very glad that I decided to get a business license. ”
“ GreenSock is the best thing that happened to SVG animations since SVG animations. ”
“ The best thing about GSAP is that it just works, and it works well. On every single browser I’ve tested. ”
“ 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. ”
“ 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. ”
“ GreenSock has encouraged me to play with the code, to dream up new and exciting things to do. ”
