will-change issue Chrome

Hi guys,


I just an article on the GSAP Blog about the "will-change" and Chrome issue with scaling images and after copying the codepen provided in the article I started to play around a solution that possibly could help lots of devs around.


So, if you read this article http://greensock.com/will-change, you will see that the first image get blurry when scaling.


I added "transformPerspective" and "z" properties on the animation and the scaling goes smoothly and works well.


I have been using it for a while now and I hope you guys can find it useful as well.


See the codes modified here: 



Kind regards,


Fernando Fas
