  1. The secret to building gorgeous sequences with precise timing is understanding the position parameter which is used in many methods throughout TimelineLite/Max. This one super-flexible parameter controls the placement of your tweens, labels, callbacks, pauses, and even nested timelines, so you'll be able to literally place anything anywhere in any sequence. Watch the video For a quick overview of the position parameter, check out this video from the "GSAP 3 Express" course by Snorkl.tv - one of the best ways to learn the basics of GSAP 3. Using position with gsap.to() This article will focus on the gsap.to() method for adding tweens to a Tween, but it works the same in other methods like from(), fromTo(), add(), etc. Notice that the position parameter comes after the vars parameter: .to( target, vars, position ) Since it's so common to chain animations one-after-the-other, the default position is "+=0" which just means "at the end", so timeline.to(...).to(...) chains those animations back-to-back. It's fine to omit the position parameter in this case. But what if you want them to overlap, or start at the same time, or have a gap between them? No problem. Multiple behaviors You can define the position in any of the following ways At an absolute time (1) Relative to the end of a timeline allowing for gaps ("+=1") or overlaps ("-=1") At a label ("someLabel") Relative to a label ("someLabel+=1") Relative to the previously added tween ("<" references the most recently-added animation's START time while ">" references the most recently-added animation's END time) Basic code usage tl.to(element, 1, {x: 200}) //1 second after end of timeline (gap) .to(element, {duration: 1, y: 200}, "+=1") //0.5 seconds before end of timeline (overlap) .to(element, {duration: 1, rotation: 360}, "-=0.5") //at exactly 6 seconds from the beginning of the timeline .to(element, {duration: 1, scale: 4}, 6); It can also be used to add tweens at labels or relative to labels //add a label named scene1 at an exact time of 2-seconds into the timeline tl.add("scene1", 2) //add tween at scene1 label .to(element, {duration: 4, x: 200}, "scene1") //add tween 3 seconds after scene1 label .to(element, {duration: 1, opacity: 0}, "scene1+=3"); Sometimes technical explanations and code snippets don't do these things justice. Take a look at the interactive examples below.

    TimelineMax

    Note: TimelineMax has been deprecated in GSAP 3 (but GSAP 3 is still compatible with TimelineMax). We highly recommend using the gsap.timeline() object instead. While GSAP 3 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. TimelineMax extends TimelineLite, offering exactly the same functionality plus useful (but non-essential) features like repeat, repeatDelay, yoyo, currentLabel(), tweenTo(), tweenFromTo(), getLabelAfter(), getLabelBefore(), getActive() (and probably more in the future). It is the ultimate sequencing tool that acts like a container for tweens and other timelines, making it simple to control them as a whole and precisely manage their timing. Its easy to make complex sequences repeat with TimelineMax and there are plenty of methods and events that give you complete access to all aspects of your animation as shown in the demo below. See the Pen Burger Boy Finished / TimelineMax page by GreenSock (@GreenSock) on CodePen. Interesting note: The animation in the banner above is a mere 11 lines of TimelineMax code. The next demo illustrates many of the things TimelineLite and TimelineMax handle with ease, such as the ability to: insert multiple tweens with overlapping start times into a timeline create randomized bezier tweens control the entire set of tweens with a basic UI slider repeat the animation any number of times dynamically adjust the speed at runtime. Notice how the play / pause buttons smoothly accelerate and deccelerate? See the Pen Burger Boy Finished / TimelineMax page by GreenSock (@GreenSock) on CodePen Be sure to check out TimelineLite for more info on all the capabilities TimelineMax inherits. The chart below gives a birds-eye look at the methods these tools provide. ul.chart { width:360px; float:left; margin-right:30px; } ul.chart li:nth-child(1){ font-weight:700; list-style:none; margin-left:-20px; font-size:20px; margin-bottom:20px; } TimelineLite and TimelineMax Methods add() addLabel() addPause() call() clear() delay() duration() eventCallback exportRoot() from() fromTo() getChildren() getLabelTime() getTweensOf() invalidate() isActive() kill() pause() paused() play() progress() remove() removeLabel() render() restart() resume() reverse() reversed() seek() set() shiftChildren() staggerFrom() staggerFromTo() staggerTo() startTime() time() timeScale() to() totalDuration() totalProgress() totalTime() useFrames() Methods exclusive to TimelineMax currentLabel() getActive() getLabelAfter() getLabelBefore() getlLabelsArray() repeat() repeatDelay() tweenFromTo() tweenTo() yoyo()

    TimelineLite

    Note: TimelineLite has been deprecated in GSAP 3 (but GSAP 3 is still compatible with TimelineLite). We highly recommend using the gsap.timeline() object instead. While GSAP 3 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. TimelineLite is a lightweight, intuitive timeline class for building and managing sequences of TweenLite, TweenMax, TimelineLite, and/or TimelineMax instances. You can think of a TimelineLite instance like a container where you place tweens (or other timelines) over the course of time. build sequences easily by adding tweens with methods like to(), from(), staggerFrom(), add(), and more. tweens can overlap as much as you want and you have complete control over where they get placed on the timeline. add labels, play(), stop(), seek(), restart(), and even reverse() smoothly anytime. nest timelines within timelines as deeply as you want. set the progress of the timeline using its progress() method. For example, to skip to the halfway point, set myTimeline.progress(0.5); tween the time() or progress() values to fastforward/rewind the timeline. You could even attach a slider to one of these properties to give the user the ability to drag forwards/backwards through the timeline. speed up or slow down the entire timeline using timeScale(). You can even tween this property to gradually speed up or slow down. add onComplete, onStart, onUpdate, and/or onReverseComplete callbacks using the constructor’s vars object. use the powerful add() method to add labels, callbacks, tweens and timelines to a timeline. base the timing on frames instead of seconds if you prefer. Please note, however, that the timeline’s timing mode dictates its childrens’ timing mode as well. kill the tweens of a particular object with killTweensOf() or get the tweens of an object with getTweensOf() or get all the tweens/timelines in the timeline with getChildren() If you need even more features like, repeat(), repeatDelay(), yoyo(), currentLabel(), getLabelsArray(), getLabelAfter(), getLabelBefore(), getActive(), tweenTo() and more, check out TimelineMax which extends TimelineLite. Sample Code //instantiate a TimelineLite var tl = new TimelineLite(); //add a from() tween at the beginning of the timline tl.from(head, 0.5, {left:100, opacity:0}); //add another tween immediately after tl.from(subhead, 0.5, {left:-100, opacity:0}); //use position parameter "+=0.5" to schedule next tween 0.5 seconds after previous tweens end tl.from(feature, 0.5, {scale:.5, autoAlpha:0}, "+=0.5"); //use position parameter "-=0.5" to schedule next tween 0.25 seconds before previous tweens end. //great for overlapping tl.from(description, 0.5, {left:100, autoAlpha:0}, "-=0.25"); //add a label 0.5 seconds later to mark the placement of the next tween tl.add("stagger", "+=0.5") //to jump to this label use: tl.play("stagger"); //stagger the animation of all icons with 0.1s between each tween's start time //this tween is added tl.staggerFrom(icons, 0.2, {scale:0, autoAlpha:0}, 0.1, "stagger"); Demo See the Pen TimelineLite Control : new GS.com by GreenSock (@GreenSock) on CodePen. Watch The video below will walk you through the types of problems TimelineLite solves and illustrate the flexibility and power of our core sequencing tool. Learn more in the TimelineLite docs. For even more sequencing power and control take a look at TimelineMax.
  4. **See Codepen URL** I'm trying to create a simple sequence that fades out "Test" after 4 seconds, and then fade out "Rest" after 2 seconds. "Best" will remain. When I append outside of the "if" statement, the sequence works—but inside of the statement—it does not register. I am able to detect as existing all of the elements (div, array, timeline object, etc) in the statement with the console log. It appears though that appending a sequence from an embedded "if" statement will not work. It has to be done on the root level with the Timeline object. Is this correct? Or is there a way to make this work with my current setup? (I've added notations to the code.) Thanks!
  5. When working with TimelineMax, is it possible to use a relative position and have a label? I have tried to chain `addLabel` before and after the desired position, but it does not seem to be able to be referenced. Am I falling into some sort of anti-pattern? Here is a barebones demo: http://codepen.io/anon/pen/VLrpQX var tl = new TimelineMax(); var boxNode = $('.box'); tl .fromTo( boxNode, 8, { autoAlpha: 0 }, { autoAlpha: 1 }, 'fadeIn' ) // Start the movement alongside the fade .addLabel('moveFromTop') .to( boxNode, 1, { top: '200px' }, 'fadeIn+=0' ) //.addLabel('moveFromTop') // One second after moving from top, move from the left .to( boxNode, 1, { left: '200px' }, 'moveFromTop+=1' );
  6. I want to tween first three items and then replace the 3 items(overwrite) with next three items for tweening and after that I want to overwrite next 3 : continue so on until the end of items and oncomplete, I want to repeat the whole process. I am using overwrite to overwrite the first three with next three but it doesn't work! Can someone help me with this? Is something wrong in my code? Any help will be greatly appreciated! CSSPlugin.defaultTransformPerspective = 600; var t1 = new TimelineMax({ repeat: 1000, yoyo: true, repeatDelay: .5 }), count = 1;//the label number $('.tick').each(function (index, item) { t1.from(item, 0.7, { x: 100, rotationX: -90, transformOrigin: "50% 0px", ease: Back.easeOut, overwrite: "none" }, 'label' + count) count++; if(index % 3 == 2) { t1.TweenLite.defaultOverwrite = "all"; } });
  7. Hi, I am working on a flash training presentation including a number tweens which need to appear one after another, mainly texts and some photos flying in or fading out while trying to control the timing of the elements with delay property. I have noticed however that when "delay" used in conjunction with "onComplete" callbacks the delays are somewhat missing and not processed. So instead of delaying the start of the animation and then only do onComplete when it ends it seems like the script is disregarding the delay properties an proceeds immedeately with onComplete callback functions. Please see example below: //animations part 1 TweenLite.to(girl, 1, {_alpha:100, ease:Linear.easeNone, delay:1.5}); TweenLite.to(planTab, 0.7, {_y:417, ease:Linear.easeNone, delay:3.5}); TweenLite.to(text_1, 0.5, {_x:394, _alpha:100, ease:Linear.easeOut, delay:4}); TweenLite.to(text_2_Anim, 0.5, {_x:395, _alpha:100, ease:Linear.easeOut, onComplete:myFunction1, delay:4.3}); //animations part 2 - need to start with about 2 second delay after previous set so the previous texts can be read function myFunction1() { TweenLite.to(text_2_Anim, 0.5, {_x:435, _alpha:0, ease:Linear.easeOut, delay:2.5, onComplete:text_2_Anim.nextFrame()}); TweenLite.to(text_2_Anim, 0.5, {_x:395, _alpha:100, ease:Linear.easeOut, delay:3}); TweenLite.to(benefitsTab, 0.5, {_alpha:100, ease:Linear.easeNone, onComplete:myFunction2, delay:3}); } //animations part 3 function myFunction2() { //more tweens here. } Any ideas on why it is happening? Thanks, Attila
  8. I'm having an issue with sequencing some animations. I would ultimately like the duration of the timeline to be equal to 2 seconds but only have the following objects animate at specific points in the first second. Goals: 1. Duration of TimelineMax = 2 seconds 2. Specifically time the elements to start and finish there animations within the first second. 3. Loop timeline So far I have the loop working and all animation running. the problem is that the duration is not 2 seconds long. I could really use some help straightening this out.
