SVG child no rotationX & rotationY

Recommended Posts

Since v1.16.1 all tweens that i had on my project, which have been animating svg nodes children now off, why?


P.S. Well i kinda can guess, knowing svg specs, but still, ain't there any workaround to that?

Coz it worked pretty much everywhere except iOS 7 and less...

Without some code and context it will pretty hard to even know hat specifically you are talking about.


Also the SVG spec does not support 3D Transforms only 2D Transforms. When you use rotationY or rotationX you are rotating on and intersecting positively and negatively on the  z-axis plane. But you can use rotation.


Please provide a codepen example, thanks!

Yes, to make behavior more consistent with all browsers and the spec we are using the transform attribute when applying transforms to SVG.

To revert to the old behavior (which will allow 3D in Safari) use:

CSSPlugin.useSVGTransformAttr = false;

TweenLite.to("circle", 1, {rotationX:180, transformOrigin:"50% 50%"});

Thx Carl, i just new you still have some rabbits in hat left! ;)


But what about future, do you have some plans to emulate 3d-transform for SVG nodes using some supported values like skew, scale etc?

I get what you're saying but we haven't really considered doing any sort of "mock-3D". In this pen http://codepen.io/chrisgannon/pen/vNJKJM Chris Gannon uses MorphSVG to make the fins of the rocket appear to be rotating in 3D. It's quite convincing!


and here is another little trick: http://codepen.io/chrisgannon/pen/xGzxoJ
