looping animation a set number

Recommended Posts



Working on an animation which needs to repeat (loop) a number (7) of times. I've placed all the animation into one function (timeline):

function forward () {

var tl = new TimelineLite();

tl.to(one, 0.75, {css:{rotation:".16rad" },ease:Linear.easeNone} );

tl.to(one, 0.75, {css:{rotation:"0 rad" },ease:Linear.easeNone} );

tl.to(two, 0.55, {css:{rotation:"-.14rad" },ease:Linear.easeNone});

tl.to(thr, 0.50, {css:{rotation:"-.13rad" },ease:Linear.easeNone});

tl.to(fou, 0.45, {css:{rotation:"-.12rad" },ease:Linear.easeNone});

tl.to(fiv, 0.40, {css:{rotation:"-.12rad" },ease:Linear.easeNone});

tl.to(six, 0.35, {css:{rotation:"-.11rad" },ease:Linear.easeNone});

tl.to(six, 0.30, {css:{rotation:"0 rad" },ease:Linear.easeNone} );

tl.to(fiv, 0.25, {css:{rotation:"0 rad" },ease:Linear.easeNone} );

tl.to(fou, 0.20, {css:{rotation:"0 rad" },ease:Linear.easeNone});

tl.to(thr, 0.15, {css:{rotation:"0 rad" },ease:Linear.easeNone});

tl.to(two, 0.14, {css:{rotation:"0 rad" },ease:Linear.easeNone});



Is there a way to repeat the animation without creating another functions? As well as ending the repeat at a set number of times?


If this has been asked before, pardon the repeative topic.

Hi and welcome to the forum!!


The most simple way is to use repeat property, but for that you have to use TimelineMax, since repeat is not a property of TimelineLite. Take a look at the api reference.


You said that the idea is to repeat that timeline 7 times, so it would be something like this:


function forward(){
   var tl = new TimelineMax({repeat:6});
   tl.to(one, 0.75, {css:{rotation:".16rad" },ease:Linear.easeNone} );
 tl.to(two, 0.14, {css:{rotation:"0 rad" },ease:Linear.easeNone});

Keep in mind that the code above will play the tween 7 times, since it will play one time and repeat six times.


Hope this can help,
