DrawSVG animation delay on every subsequent 'path'

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


I am trying to perform an animation with a delay on every subsequent SVG 'path'. In this Codepen link you can see that every letter of the SVG logo is separated by a 'path'. How do I perform a DrawSVG animation delay for each path, similar to how it looks like in here. This was animated using Anime.js, but sadly it couldn't control the animation using events as good as DrawSVG, but the delay of each letter was what I'm looking for. Is there a quick way to do this? Or would I have to manually delay every path by giving it IDs?

You can do that by using stagger tweens but when you use stagger tweens, it returns an array of all tweens. So to work around that you need to include your tween in timeline as container so you can access the play reverse methods. 

You can read more about stagger tweens in the docs, also there are some great video tutorials on GreenSock channel on YouTube

Hi Sahil,


That's an amazing solution. Apologies for not looking up the Youtube channel. I'm very new to GSAP and this is my first project trying out. Your solution is amazing, + with easings it makes the animation look really cool!
