[Feature request] Are you panning on adding +=/-= values to CSS clip?

Recommended Posts



I'm playing with some "clip" animations right now, and find myself calculate way too many hardcoded values.


[Edit: this functionality exist, I still wish for the array option]

I think that an addition of relative values to clip:rect() will add a lot of flexibility.


Also, allowing clip to receive an array of values instead of the CSS syntax rect(a,b,c,d) could help ease development too.


something like so:

 // set initial clip:rect(0, 100px, 100px, 0) as required by CSS
TweenMax.set(element, {clip: [0, 100, 100, 0]})

// tween from clip:rect(50px, 80px, 100px, 0)
TweenMax.from(element, {clip: ['+=50', '-=20', '+=0', '+=0']}))

I'm in a bit of a rush at the moment so I haven't personally tried, but did you try using relative values that are not inside an array? Like:

TweenMax.from(element, {clip:'rect(+=50,-=20,+=0,+=0)'});

Just curious if you had any success. I vaguely remember that working.

oh! how stupid of me, it is working!

I couldn't find any reference to this in the documentation, so i didn't even try.


Still, I think that the second part of my request is still valid - everywhere in TweenMax, if you pass numbers without values TweenMax normalise them into 'px' values, but not in this case.
