Help with beginner tweenLite user

Recommended Posts



I have been trying to create an image carousel for a website, I found Greensock out of a recommendation because jQuery animations aren't as fluid, I looked at the beginner tutorials from Petr and also followed a tutorial he has on youtube, I have been having problems making the images rotate as shown in my codepen.


Can someone help me please?

Hi Alvaro, great to see you experimenting with GSAP.


Which of my tutorials have you followed?


I've only quickly looked at your code and see a few errors:

function goToTile(sildeIn, slideOut)

// should be slideIn, also you have tl twice in that function
// also I would include var in front of slideIn 

var slideIn = ...

My suspicion is that the way you are passing the slideIn into the goToTile function is returning wrong object on a second click.


Try to console log this and see if it returns the right object all the time:

slideIn = slideOut.parent().children('.view').eq(index);

Sorry I couldn't help more atm, but I hope it steers you into the right direction.

Hi Alvaro,


Normally I don't consider a good idea to use a timeline class for a carousel/slider. I find much simpler using a Tween class for every slide, but that's just me.


Here's a very simple example of a content slider:

Also here's a slider crafted by Jonathan using a timeline class:

Thank yo very much I was able to fix the problem, I'm really considering buying the advanced class for greensock, is there a syllabus that I can check?


Once again thank you.
