  1. I have read various posts on here, some old, and some more recent, about animations being glitchy in Firefox. I have done my absolute best to obtain as much information as I can prior to posting this, in addition to creating the attached Codepen. For some reason, I cannot get my animation to play smoothly in Firefox. To keep things simple, this is all the information I have (and have learned/tried): Issue only occurs in Firefox on Mac OS (smooth as silk in Firefox on Windows) Not my graphics card as a) it is a top spec 2019 Macbook Pro, and b) my designer has the same issue on his Mac I have tried the rotation fix I have tried force3D I have tried using low res images The more effects that I add, the worse it gets i.e. autoAlpha, Rotation, filter etc... Additional information: I am using GSAP 2.1.3 as haven't had the time to upgrade (after I post this, I will attempt to create the same animation with the latest version in a separate codepen) It does seem as if there is a minor memory leak of some sort in either GSAP or Firefox because my fan goes mad when I have the codepen tab open and on screen I have wondered whether it is to do with the retina display as I had a similar issue with my fan in the past with this plugin that was caused by the retina display Can anyone suggest what may be causing this?
  2. Hey yall, I'm new to greensock, and I love the library and this forum. This forum has especially been helpful as I practice and learn gsap technique. I have a new project that is supposed to animate a background SVG, and it has the following requirements: The background diagonals are supposed to slowly move downwards, kind of like a parallax effect. It's a big SVG with lines running across it When the user scrolls, it supposed to speed up the parallax progress a little bit with some easing, but continues to progress down the timeline When the user scrolls upwards, its supposed to reverse the tween timeline I've been able to achieve a few things, but the things i'm still having trouble with are Reversing the scroll direction with the scroll event is upwards. Also right now, I have the progress of the scroll animation tied to the height percent of the `window.innerHeight`. but after testing, i don't think this is a good idea. Because the window height percent is not compatible with the progress of the timeline. So i should find another way to progress the timeline.. but i'm not sure what. For reference I used this post to get started, which as been really helpful: If anyone has advice from doing something similar to this, please please let me know. My knowledge is not advanced enough to debug. Thank you Thank you!! PS please excuse the messy code, i'm just trying to get this thing working. Best, Gabriel

    Dollar Counter

    Hi, I am trying to make a counter. The namings might seem a bit weird but they are specific to another project that this is for. Basically, once it is in it's final place the activeIndex will be determined by a slider.js that i have running. Once the activeIndex == 1 or 2. it should set a number 49 or 70 that the count() function will count to. Any help would be great! Thanks, Phil
  4. Hello there, I would like to know and clarify if the TimelineMax is already inside of TweenMax? I just created this topic so it will be useful for someone that wants to know if TimelineMax is included on TweenMax file. For any answer will be appreciated!
  5. I have a page full of animations that are created with timelinemax. Is it possible to create anchor buttons that will trigger a certain line of animation from a timelinemax scene? For example If I have an animation that at first rotates a box, then moves it in x axis 50 pixels and then changes it's color, is it possible to have a button that will skip let's say the rotation and finishes the rest of the animation? Thanks in advance.
  6. I have recently started working with an animator who uses After Effects and the Bodymovin plugin to create SVG animations for websites. Bodymovin exports the SVG file as a JSON file, which you then run in a div via a JavaScript command from the lottie.js, Lottie Web library. (Check out the links, or scroll down further in this post for more details.) My primary goal is to create a workflow that allows for rapid creation of custom SVG animations, and be able to control them fully with GreenSock and ScrollMagic. During my research and attempts to integrate them all I have wondered how much of these JS libraries are overlapping each other in toolkits and effectiveness. My knowledge of anything past design, UI/UX, and basic front end JavaScript starts to become limited. So I have to ask, is it possible to control the GreenSock + Lottie animation using ScrollMagic? And perhaps more importantly, should I be animating using this workflow at all? Current Progress: ------------------------------- If you're interested in seeing my initial journey to get all 3 integrated I have documented it below... (Unfortunately I don't have CodePen pro so I wasn't able to put this all together in a Pen for viewing, if it's something that becomes necessary I will go ahead and get CodePen pro and do so.) Research: Integrating TimelineMax, with Lottie Web, and Controlling w/ ScrollMagic I have recently started working with an animator who uses After Effects and the Bodymovin plugin to create SVG animations for websites. Bodymovin exports the SVG file as a JSON file, which you then run in a div via a JavaScript command from the lottie.js, Lottie Web library as you can see from the sample below. var select = function(s) { return document.querySelector(s); }, selectAll = function(s) { return document.querySelectorAll(s); }, animationWindow = select('#animationWindow'), animData = { container: animationWindow, renderer: 'svg', loop: true, autoplay: true, path: 'PATH.JSON' }, anim; var anim = lottie.loadAnimation(animData); A Singular Example of Controlling Lottie w/ GreenSock I have been looking high and low for documented of examples of people successfully integrating with GreenSock and Scroll Magic with very limited results. I have found one excellent video on YouTube of a dev by the name Chris Gannon (who I suspect may be a member of these forums) successfully controlling a Lottie animation through TimelineMax but that is about it. My Attempts to Recreate This, and Add ScrollMagic Control Have not gone very well... I believe that the current state of my code (mostly able to get this far thanks to the work of Chris Gannon) is missing some vital information on the Lottie animation itself. How many frames does the animation have? The relation of scroll position to frame selection. Pushing that data through to TimelineMax to effectively control animation. My goal being to control the animation with a Tween, Duration Tween, or a Reversed Tween. The code below is my hack-job trying to get this all working; i'm currently dealing with an error from this code "Uncaught ReferenceError: animationControl is not defined". jQuery(function($) { //Lottie animation Window and Data wrapper var select = function(s) { return document.querySelector(s); }, selectAll = function(s) { return document.querySelectorAll(s); }, animationWindow = select('#animationWindow'), animData = { container: animationWindow, renderer: 'svg', loop: true, autoplay: true, path: 'PATH.JSON' }, anim; //Lotie animation trigger var anim = lottie.loadAnimation(animData); anim.setSpeed(1); //TimelineMax Lottie animation control $('#animationWindow').each(function(){ var animationControl = new TimelineMax({}); animationControl.to({frame:0}, 4, { frame:anim.totalFrames-1, onUpdate:function(){ anim.goToAndStop(Math.round(this.target.frame), true) }, repeat: -1, yoyo: true, ease:Linear.easeNone }) }); //ScrollMagic Scene var controller = new ScrollMagic.Controller(); var icon_scene = new ScrollMagic.Scene({triggerElement: "#animationWindow_trigger", triggerHook: 'onEnter'}) .setTween(animationControl) .addTo(controller); }); And this is my current state of affairs. I will be updating this post as I move along, and eventually - hopefully come up with an elegant solution to this.
  7. I'm having problems animating a grid-like structure. In my CSS, I'm defining basic percentage values of some fields within a container and I'm using a timeline to tween proportions. But there's a problem with the values calculated at start, e.g. ".firm" has a CSS-defined value of 40% and should be tweened to 20%. This works as long as it is the first tween (on the first line) of the timeline. However, if I put the tween of ".studio" on the first line, ".firm" starts tweening at a width of "60%", which is the CSS-defined value of ".studio" – this also applies vice versa. I'm certainly missing a very basic thing. Maybe someone could have a look into the Codepen and correct me.
  8. Hello again, I'm trying to create a page, where the menu at first is displayed as a grid but gets shifted to a horizontally aligned top-menu-bar by scrolling. I'm using the scroll-position to control the progress of the animation. That in itself is just working fine. However, there's one more thing I'm trying to include. I've already searched the forum for a clue, but it seems that I just can't get my head around it … Whenever a certain aspect-ratio is met, the menu-items change their proportions – there are timelines for each aspect-ratio to create a smooth transition here . This again also affects the scroll-based animation. So, if I scrolled halfway through the animation, then resize the browser until the change happens, I'm able to tween the menu-items to where they should be based on the new aspect-ratio and the actual progress of the timeline. But if I continue scrolling from there, it always jumps back to the "old" proportions. If someone could give me a hint on this, that'd be supernice! Many thanks!!!
  9. 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. No position: Direct Sequence If no position parameter is provided, all tweens will run in direct succession. .content .demoBody code.prettyprint, .content .demoBody pre.prettyprint { margin:0; } .content .demoBody pre.prettyprint { width:8380px; } .content .demoBody code, .main-content .demoBody code { background-color:transparent; font-size:18px; line-height:22px; } .demoBody { background-color:#1d1d1d; font-family: 'Signika Negative', sans-serif; color:#989898; font-size:16px; width:838px; margin:auto; } .timelineDemo { margin:auto; background-color:#1d1d1d; width:800px; padding:20px 0; } .demoBody h1, .demoBody h2, .demoBody h3 { margin: 10px 0 10px 0; color:#f3f2ef; } .demoBody h1 { font-size:36px; } .demoBody h2 { font-size:18px; font-weight:300; } .demoBody h3 { font-size:24px; } .demoBody p{ line-height:22px; margin-bottom:16px; width:650px; } .timelineDemo .box { width:50px; height:50px; position:relative; border-radius:6px; margin-bottom:4px; } .timelineDemo .green{ background-color:#6fb936; } .timelineDemo .orange { background-color:#f38630; } .timelineDemo .blue { background-color:#338; } .timleineUI-row{ background-color:#2f2f2f; margin:2px 0; padding:4px 0; } .secondMarker { width:155px; border-left: solid 1px #aaa; display:inline-block; position:relative; line-height:16px; font-size:16px; padding-left:4px; color:#777; } .timelineUI-tween{ position:relative; width:160px; height:16px; border-radius:8px; background: #a0bc58; /* Old browsers */ background: -moz-linear-gradient(top, #a0bc58 0%, #66832f 100%); /* FF3.6+ */ background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, color-stop(0%,#a0bc58), color-stop(100%,#66832f)); /* Chrome,Safari4+ */ background: -webkit-linear-gradient(top, #a0bc58 0%,#66832f 100%); /* Chrome10+,Safari5.1+ */ background: -o-linear-gradient(top, #a0bc58 0%,#66832f 100%); /* Opera 11.10+ */ background: -ms-linear-gradient(top, #a0bc58 0%,#66832f 100%); /* IE10+ */ background: linear-gradient(to bottom, #a0bc58 0%,#66832f 100%); /* W3C */ filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient( startColorstr='#a0bc58', endColorstr='#66832f',GradientType=0 ); /* IE6-9 */ } .timelineUI-dragger-track{ position:relative; width:810px; margin-top:20px; } .timelineUI-dragger{ position:absolute; width:10px; height:100px; top:-20px; } .timelineUI-dragger div{ position:relative; width: 0px; height: 0; border-style: solid; border-width: 20px 10px 0 10px; border-color: rgba(255, 0, 0, 0.4) transparent transparent transparent; left:-10px; } .timelineUI-dragger div::after { content:" "; position:absolute; width:1px; height:95px; top:-1px; left:-1px; border-left: solid 2px rgba(255, 0, 0, 0.4); } .timelineUI-dragger div::before { content:" "; position:absolute; width:20px; height:114px; top:-20px; left:-10px; } .timelineUI-time{ position:relative; font-size:30px; text-align:center; } .controls { margin:10px 2px; } .prettyprint { font-size:20px; line-height:24px; } .timelineUI-button { background: #414141; background-image: -webkit-linear-gradient(top, #575757, #414141); background-image: -moz-linear-gradient(top, #575757, #414141); background-image: -ms-linear-gradient(top, #575757, #414141); background-image: -o-linear-gradient(top, #575757, #414141); background-image: linear-gradient(to bottom, #575757, #414141); text-shadow: 0px 1px 0px #414141; -webkit-box-shadow: 0px 1px 0px 414141; -moz-box-shadow: 0px 1px 0px 414141; box-shadow: 0px 1px 0px 414141; color: #ffffff; text-decoration: none; margin: 0 auto; -webkit-border-radius: 4; -moz-border-radius: 4; border-radius: 4px; font-family: "Signika Negative", sans-serif; text-transform: uppercase; font-weight: 600; display: table; cursor: pointer; font-size: 13px; line-height: 18px; outline:none; border:none; display:inline-block; padding: 8px 14px;} .timelineUI-button:hover { background: #57a818; background-image: -webkit-linear-gradient(top, #57a818, #4d9916); background-image: -moz-linear-gradient(top, #57a818, #4d9916); background-image: -ms-linear-gradient(top, #57a818, #4d9916); background-image: -o-linear-gradient(top, #57a818, #4d9916); background-image: linear-gradient(to bottom, #57a818, #4d9916); text-shadow: 0px 1px 0px #32610e; -webkit-box-shadow: 0px 1px 0px fefefe; -moz-box-shadow: 0px 1px 0px fefefe; box-shadow: 0px 1px 0px fefefe; color: #ffffff; text-decoration: none; } .element-box { background: #ffffff; border-radius: 6px; border: 1px solid #cccccc; padding: 17px 26px 17px 26px; font-weight: 400; font-size: 18px; color: #555555; margin-bottom:20px; } .demoBody .prettyprint { min-width:300px; } His animation is a bit out of whack and the client has the following demands for you: Man should start animating 1 second before car animation ends.

    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()
  11. Hi! I'm working currently on a banner creative and am stumbling upon an issue. An external creation bureau has delivered a video in which the creative animation is portrayed. The video contains one animation where a section is fading in from left to right (opacity reaches 1 on the left earlier than on the right) over a background image. Is there any way to fade something in from left to right using Greensock? Thanks in advance! Gerben
  12. Hi there, What I want is for the polygons that make up the top-right triangle and the bottom-left triangle to 'expand' when hovered. This is done via a TimelineMax modifying the polygons' points. I had this working using TweenLite to move everything when hovered over and then a bunch more TweenLites to move everything back, but because the actual situation I need this for is much more complicated, that became a huge pain really quickly. So I'm trying to convert as many things as possible to Timelines so I can just reverse them. The problem I'm experiencing here is: If you roll over one triangle, mouse-out of the SVG area, and then hover over the second triangle, it works as expected. However, if after page load you roll over one triangle, then immediately roll over the other, the first triangle will stay 'expanded'. I'm guessing the problem is something to do with the original triangle's points being overwritten somehow but I haven't been able to figure it out. I tried using TweenLite.set() but nothing changed. Thanks, EK
  13. Problem 1: The Draggable.create() does not work unless it is put prior to the definition of t1 (the TimelineMax)... for example on line 3. There are workarounds for this... but I still get problem 2... Problem 2: While t1 is executing if the user drags the #Handle (the orange circle) t1 finishes (as shown by the execution of the onComplete event function for t1. This happens AFTER the onDragComplete, so that the seek & play command in onDragComplete is basically a no-op! I want to have t1 running and be able to drag the handle, and once it is done being dragged start t1 from the location indicated by where the user drug the #Handle.
  14. Hello Community - my second post as I'm very stuck trying to integrate a range-slider in React that will be friends with the progress() method to move through the timeline! I can pass around the value I need to my slider, but getting undefined errors when I try to pass this over to this.tl.progress(this.state.value) etc? I've read through several posts, but none look very current...in fact most are going back 2-3 years and the react-way has changed! Looking through the 'getting started with react post from Rodrigo' there are some useful hints, but it seems overly complex, compared to how easy it was to plugin the play, pause, reverse and restart methods into a button with an onClick event handler. Do we really need a separate state management file to pass down the state as props to a child component just to get the slider to move through the timeline without breaking? I also got some very good support already (This gives you more of an idea what I am working on...sorry for the lack of a reduced codepen example as this is a large full-stack application! coming soon I promise!) Here's some code of how I got the play, pause, reverse, and restart methods working...these plugged right in! (FYI ButtonGroup and Button components are from React-Bootstrap): <Row> <Col md={12}> <ButtonGroup className="animationControls"> <Button bsStyle="primary" onClick={() => this.tl.play()}> <Glyphicon glyph="play" /> {"Play"} </Button> <Button bsStyle="primary" onClick={() => this.tl.pause()}> <Glyphicon glyph="pause" /> {"Pause"} </Button> <Button bsStyle="primary" onClick={() => this.tl.reverse()}> <Glyphicon glyph="backward" /> {" Reverse"} </Button> <Button bsStyle="primary" onClick={() => this.tl.restart()}> <Glyphicon glyph="step-backward" /> {"Restart"} </Button> </ButtonGroup> </Col> </Row> Until bootstrap-4 is up and running with react, you do not have range slider in your form components, so I had to look elsewhere. After trying a few different versions, the npm package rc-slider seems to be the most lightweight (little to no boilerplate required!) create your styles for the slider before your class function: const railStyle = { position: "relative", width: "90%", margin: "0% 0% 0% 3%", height: 10, borderRadius: 7, cursor: "pointer", backgroundColor: "#afafaf" }; const handleStyle = { height: 15, width: 15, backgroundColor: "white", borderTopLeftRadius: 10, borderTopRightRadius: 10, border: "3px solid #E5F1FC", top: -2, position: "absolute" }; AND be sure to set your starting value in the constructor....probably 0 since that would be the start of your timeline.... constructor(props) { super(props); this.tl = new TimelineMax(); this.state = { center: [46.8, 8.3], zoom: 1, value: 0 }; this.handleZoomIn = this.handleZoomIn.bind(this); this.handleZoomOut = this.handleZoomOut.bind(this); this.handleReset = this.handleReset.bind(this); this.handleSliderChange = this.handleSliderChange.bind(this); } Next, I have two functions...please note that onSliderChange and onAfterChange are pre-built methods for the react rc-slider component. these successfuly track and log the value as you drag along the timeline, but kill the animation! onSliderChange = value => { this.setState({ value }); console.log("Value is: ", value); }; onAfterChange = value => { console.log(value); this.tl.progress(value / 100); }; .....And lastly, the slider component itself, inside render() <Slider className="slider" style={railStyle} handleStyle={handleStyle} min={0} max={bookingData.length} value={this.state.value} onChange={this.onSliderChange} //onInput={this.handleSliderChange} onAfterChange={this.onAfterChange} /> I know this may be hard to digest without a working example. I'll try to make a reduced case, but here's the issue...inside the Slider component, if you drag the slider around, it will successfully log the value I need. Where can I pass the value to this.tl.progress(this.state.value / 100) etc to get the timeline to respond? I've tried a dozen different ways, and I either get that value is undefined, or when I try to pass this in to the onSliderChange I get my fav error about expected a function, but instead saw an expression, no unused expressions. dragging the slider around kills the timeline, or depending where I do it, will make the animated elements disappear from the screen. Grrrrr! React is very powerful, but the need to constantly update the state of components during their lifecycle make these kinds of things very frustrating! If anyone has solved this or can send a link to an example of how to do this it would be greatly appreciated! If I figure it out on my own I will update the post - I know I'm close! Thanks community!
  15. Hi all, I have a page with clickable divs built with GSAP in vue.js. Clicking a div triggers a timelineMax animation that moves all three divs, changes their opacity, etc. When clicked, the “BACK” button applies the reverse() method, returning the divs to their original positions and styling. After reversing the animation, I am using the clearProps method to remove any remaining inline styling. As I am new to GSAP, I imagine there is a more elegant way of doing all of this but, it works. The issue arises when the user goes through this process again. When the divs are reset and user clicks one of them, the initial animation works but the reverse animation is very wonky. It seems to jump immediately to the beginning of the timeline, while simultaneously trying to reverse. It’s difficult to figure out exactly what’s happening because the debugger won’t step through the reversing timeline. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
  16. See the Pen GreenSock Home Page Animation by GreenSock (@GreenSock) on CodePen. Here is the demo we use on our homepage. Although it incorporates a few advanced techniques, at its core it is just a bunch of timelines nested inside a master timeline. This technique of nesting timelines is actually quite simple and with a little practice you'll be doing the same.
  17. Feature lists are nice, but they can get lengthy and they don't always tell the story in a way that's relevant to you as the developer or designer in the trenches, trying to get real work done for real clients. You hear plenty about theoretical benefits of CSS animations or some whiz-bang library that claims to solve various challenges, but then you discover things fall apart in all but the most modern browsers or the API is exceedingly cumbersome or there frustrating "gotchas". You need things to just work. .expander { cursor: pointer; font-weight: 400; position: relative; } section .card{ padding-bottom: 6px; margin-bottom: 10px; padding-left: 35px; padding-top: 6px; box-shadow: none; } .expandable-list { padding-left: 0; } .expandable-content { padding: 0; height: 0; overflow: hidden; } .expander-button { position: absolute; border-radius: 50%; background-color: #BBB; width: 15px; height: 15px; display: inline-block; vertical-align: middle; border: 1px solid #FFF; margin-top: 8px; /* vertically center with heading top: 50%; margin-top: -9px; */ left: -8px; margin-left: -18px; font-size: 0px; } .expander-plus, .expander-minus { position: absolute; background-color: #FFF; display: block; } .expander-plus { width: 1px; height: 7px; left: 6px; top: 3px; } .expander-minus { width: 7px; height: 1px; top: 6px; left: 3px; } .project-post p { font-family: "Lucida Grande", "Lucida Sans Unicode", Helvetica, Arial, Verdana, sans-serif; } .project-post h2 { padding-top: 16px; margin-bottom: 10px; } .expPoint, .project-post .expList li { font-size: 1.1em; list-style: none; line-height: normal; margin: 0px 0px 0px 8px; padding: 6px 4px 4px 20px; position:relative; border: 1px solid rgba(204,204,204,0); } .expPoint, .expContent { font-family: "Lucida Grande", "Lucida Sans Unicode", Helvetica, Arial, Verdana, sans-serif; } .expPoint:hover, .project-post .expList li:hover { background-color:white; border: 1px solid rgb(216,216,216); } .expContent { height: 0px; overflow: hidden; color: #656565; font-size: 0.9em; line-height: 150%; font-weight: normal; margin: 5px 0px 0px 0px; padding-top: 0px; } .toggle { width:6px; height:8px; position:absolute; background-image:url(/_img/toggle_arrow.gif); background-repeat: no-repeat; left: 9px; top: 12px; } .expMore { color: #71b200; text-decoration: underline; font-size:0.8em; } #featureAnimation, #featureBox { background-color:#000; border: 1px solid #333; height: 220px; overflow:hidden; line-height: normal; font-size: 80%; } #featureAnimation { position:relative; visibility:hidden; } #featureBox { position:absolute; } #featureAnimation, #featureBox, #whyGSAP, .featureTextGreen, .featureTextWhite { width: 838px; } #whyGSAP, .featureTextGreen, .featureTextWhite { text-align: center; } #whyGSAP, .featureTextGreen, .featureTextWhite { font-size:50px; position:absolute; font-family: "Lucida Grande", "Lucida Sans Unicode", Helvetica, Arial, Verdana, sans-serif; top:0; } .featureTextGreen { color:#91e600; font-weight: bold; } .featureTextWhite { color:white; font-weight:normal; } .star { position: absolute; width: 16px; height: 16px; display: none; } #browserIcons { top:64px; left: 100px; width: 92px; height: 92px; position: absolute; text-align:left; } #browserIcons img { position:absolute; } .featureTextMinor { color:#CCCCCC; font-weight:normal; font-size:20px; position:absolute; font-family: "Lucida Grande", "Lucida Sans Unicode", Helvetica, Arial, Verdana, sans-serif; visibility:hidden; } .dot { position:absolute; background-color: #91e600; } #ctrl_slider { position:absolute; width: 725px; height:10px; left:18px; top:196px; background: rgba(80,80,80,0.3); border:1px solid rgba(102,102,102,0.5); visibility:hidden; } Why GSAP?

  18. Hello, Project Background: I am working on a SVG Map and using the paths to animate the path going from one point to another, ie a to b, b to c, c to a etc. The Paths are drawn successfully but I am unable to find a solution to stop the current animation and clear out any related properties, before the next path starts to draw. Code Pen Demo: I have two SVG paths that get drawn. Both paths have their buttons for animation to start, currently when I click on Path 1 button it starts to draw and then when I click on Path 2 and starts to draw as well and both running as the same time. When Path 1 is clicked and the path is being drawn and I click on Path 2 button I would like the Path 1 animation to stop and the Path 2 starts. When I say completely stop, I mean completely I mean its set back to originally start before the button was clicked. I put a Kill() button when stops the animation but leaves the path line drawn on the screen, and if I start the second path the first one restarts I might not be placing it correctly maybe? When searching the forum, I have came across clear(), restart() but that did not work or I might not applied them correctly, to keep the code demo minimum I did not include those into demo. Any help or suggestions are very much appreciated. Thanks!
  19. With CSS 3 I am able to use keyframes, which makes animating objects really flexible. For example, with keyframes I can change a object opacity from 0 to 1 at 50% of the animation and then back to 0 at 100% of the animation... that creates a smooth fadein and fadeout. I am trying to accomplish the same with gsap. With TweenMax I can set a fromTo... but how, would I go about doing a fromTofrom? I tried doing something like this: var mydiv = new TimelineMax() .add(TweenMax.fromTo($(".mydiv"), 1, {opacity:0, scale:0}, {opacity:1, scale:1})) .add(TweenMax.fromTo($(".mydiv"), 1, {opacity:1, scale:1}, {opacity:0, scale:2})); However, when using "add", there's a very small delay between the first and the second add. How do I go about removing that delay? Or, is there another way of doing chained animations?
  20. https://codesandbox.io/s/sad-maxwell-2b7vv?fontsize=14 Edit: For clarification, this needs to use React hooks. I have it transforming from = to x and vice versa, however, I had to hard code the reverse animation because I couldn't seem to get it to work by using the reverse or reveresed methods like shown below. if (isMenuOpen) timeline.play() else (timeline.reversed(true).play()
  21. Hi I heave animated banners template list create using timelinelite. I want to select some banners as preview and edit text then add to timelinelite after that play all selected banners how can i do that. please help Thank you
  22. To give a quick summary, I want to be able to set the progress/time at which a bezier path will hit each anchor point while keeping both the path and speed/progress smooth, i.e.: var bezier_path = [ {x:0, y:0, progress:0}, {x:0, y:80, progress:0.1}, {x:80, y:80, progress:0.5}, {x:80, y:0, progress:0.6}, {x:0, y:0, progress:1} ]; Essentially what I'm trying to do is the same as @danehansenfrom 2013 if it gives you any inspiration: As you can see in the CodePen, the main method I've tried is correlating the x, y, and progress properties of a bezier tween. The x and y properties tween the moving element and the progress property tweens the parent timeline. Unfortunately it appears that including x and y values in the timeline tween breaks the tween. Hence, I've played with BezierPlugin.bezierThrough to calculate the correlated bezier and then seperate the object properties out for the element and timeline tweens. Unfortunately, TimelineMax.to() with bezier:{} doesn't accept this form of input. I've thought about using CustomEases but unless I know at at what time/progress a bezier anchor point will be reached this is not possible.
  23. Hi there, I'm trying to make an animation to repeat infinitely with a TimelineMax instance that includes a pause. var tl = new TimelineMax({ repeat: -1 }) .to(repeatWithPause, 0.5, { rotation: 180 }) .to(repeatWithPause, 0.5, { rotation: 0 }) .addPause(1.0); You can see in the codepen what I've tried so far. It seems I'm able to repeat several times the first animation. But as soon as I add a pause in the timeline, only the first iteration is played. The same applies for repeat > 1 and when the addPause() isn't at the end of the timeline. I might be doing something wrong. Any help appreciated.
  24. so I've seemingly never been able to get TimelineMax/TimelineLite to work. I've always gotten around this by using TweenMax tween's onComplete property to invoke the next tween, but, with the current animation I'm working on, it's necessary to have some of the functionality TimelineMax provides in my animation. What I am trying to is animate the clouds in this scene to move to and from each side of the screen. I am trying to do this with a repeating timeline for each cloud. The JS relevant to this issue can be found in this "passiveCloudAnimation" IIFE function. (function passiveCloudAnimation(){ let numOfClouds = 3; let cloudOne = new TimelineMax(); cloudOne.to( "#cloud-1", 9, {transform:"translateX(94vw)"} ) cloudOne.to( "#cloud-1", 9, {transform:"translateX(0vw)"} ) })(); and so you needn't go searching around too much here are all the relevant css selectors and rules. .cloud { background: #fff; background: -webkit-gradient( linear, left top, left bottom, color-stop(5%, #fff), color-stop(100%, #f1f1f1) ); background: -webkit-linear-gradient(top, #fff 5%, #f1f1f1 100%); background: -o-linear-gradient(top, #fff 5%, #f1f1f1 100%); background: -ms-linear-gradient(top, #fff 5%, #f1f1f1 100%); background: linear-gradient(top, #fff 5%, #f1f1f1 100%); filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient( startColorstr="#fff", endColorstr="#f1f1f1", GradientType=0 ); -webkit-border-radius: 500px; -moz-border-radius: 500px; border-radius: 500px; /*change box shadow - need to make it thicker*/ top: 40%; height: 54%; position: relative; width: 100%; } .cloud:after, .cloud:before { background: #fff; content: ""; position: absolute; z-index: -1; } .cloud:after { -webkit-border-radius: 50%; -moz-border-radius: 50%; border-radius: 50%; /* for left bumpe */ height: 110%; width: 40%; left: 14%; top: -46%; } .cloud, .cloud:before { -webkit-box-shadow: 12px 20px 20px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.5); -moz-box-shadow: 12px 20px 20px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.5); box-shadow: 12px 20px 20px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.5); } .cloud:before { -webkit-border-radius: 50%; -moz-border-radius: 50%; border-radius: 50%; /*for right bump*/ width: 48%; height: 150%; right: 11%; top: -75%; } .Cloud-Container { display: block; position: absolute; /*positioning*/ /*keep this ratio*/ height: 5vw; width: 7vw; } #Cloud-1 { top: 12%; /* animation-duration: 18s; */ z-index: 17; } #Cloud-2 { top: 22%; /* animation-duration: 19s; */ z-index: 17; } #Cloud-3 { top: 16%; /* animation-duration: 16s; */ z-index: 17; } The html is pretty self-explanatory. I feel like I'm following the docs exactly as it says, though as I put before I really have never been able to use GSAP Timelines. so I hope you guys can let me know what I've been messing up on all this time. thanks!
