Note: This page was created for GSAP version 2. We have since released GSAP 3 with many improvements. While it is backward compatible with most GSAP 2 features, some parts may need to be updated to work properly. Please see the GSAP 3 release notes for details. With some animation engines it can be frustrating trying to get something to rotate in a specific direction. With GSAP you can explicitly set the direction or let GSAP figure out the shortest distance. Watch the video Interactive demo See the Pen DirectionalRotation Visualizer by GreenSock (@GreenSock) on CodePen. Check out the DirectionalRotation Plugin docs for more info.
I was trying to do directional rotations in Three.js and encountered some weird/interesting behaviors... Using "_ccw" will actually result in clockwise rotation while "_cw" lead to counterclockwise rotation. That effect is happening regardless of whether I put positive/negative radians before the string. I have checked this plugin "whipped together" by the almighty code god but it doesn't cover directional rotations in Three.js. Anyways.. at least I could do directional rotations now!! Just wanna share. Maybe it's because how Three.js use positive number for counterclockwise rotation and negative number for clockwise?
