    Physics2DPlugin

    Note: This page was created for GSAP version 2. We have since released GSAP 3 with many improvements. While it is backward compatible with most GSAP 2 features, some parts may need to be updated to work properly. Please see the GSAP 3 release notes for details. Provides simple physics functionality for tweening an object's x and y coordinates (or "left" and "top") based on a combination of velocity, angle, gravity, acceleration, accelerationAngle, and/or friction. It is not intended to replace a full-blown physics engine and does not offer collision detection, but serves as a way to easily create interesting physics-based effects with the GreenSock animation platform. Parameters are not intended to be dynamically updateable, but one unique convenience is that everything is reverseable. So if you spawn a bunch of particle tweens, for example, and throw them into a TimelineLite, you could simply call reverse() on the timeline to watch the particles retrace their steps right back to the beginning. Keep in mind that any easing equation you define for your tween will be completely ignored for these properties. USAGE TweenLite.to(element, 2, {physics2D:{velocity:300, angle:-60, acceleration:50, accelerationAngle:180}}); See the Pen Physics2D Demo by GreenSock (@GreenSock) on CodePen. Learn more in the Physics2DPlugin documentation.

    BezierPlugin

    Note: This plugin was replaced with MotionPathPlugin in GSAP 3. Please see the GSAP 3 release notes for details. Animate virtually any property (or properties) along a curved Bezier path which you define as an array of points/values that can be interpreted 4 different ways (described as the Bezier's "type", like type:"soft"? "thru" (the default) - the plugin figures out how to draw the Bezier naturally through the supplied values using a proprietary algorithm. The values you provide in the array are essentially treated as anchors on the Bezier and the plugin calculates the control points. The target's current/starting values are used as the initial anchor. You can define a curviness special property that allows you to adjust the tension on the Bezier where 0 has no curviness (straight lines), 1 is normal curviness, 2 is twice the normal curviness, etc. Since "thru" is the default Bezier type, you don't need to define a type at all if this is the one you want. "soft" - the values that you provide in the array act almost like magnets that attract the curve towards them, but the Bezier doesn't typically travel through them. They are treated as control points on a Quadratic Bezier and the plugin creates the necessary intermediate anchors. The target's current/starting values are used as the initial anchor. "quadratic" - allows you to define standard Quadratic Bezier data (Quadratic Beziers have 1 control point between each anchor). The array should start with the first anchor, then control point, then anchor, control point, etc. for as many iterations as you want, but obviously make sure that it starts and ends with anchors. "cubic" - allows you to define standard Cubic Bezier data (Cubic Beziers have 2 control points between each anchor). The array should start with the first anchor, then 2 control points, then anchor, 2 control points, anchor, etc. for as many iterations as you want, but obviously make sure that it starts and ends with anchors. For full details please consult the BezierPlugin documentation.
  3. Note: This plugin was replaced by SnapPlugin in GSAP 3. Please see the GSAP 3 release notes for details. If you'd like the inbetween values in a tween to always get rounded to the nearest integer, use the roundProps special property. Just pass in a comma-delimited String containing the property names that you'd like rounded. For example, if you're tweening the x, y, and alpha properties of mc and you want to round the x and y values (not alpha) every time the tween is rendered, you'd do: TweenMax.to(element, 2, {x:300, y:200, alpha:0.5, roundProps:"x,y"});

    CSSRulePlugin

    Note: This page was created for GSAP version 2. We have since released GSAP 3 with many improvements. While it is backward compatible with most GSAP 2 features, some parts may need to be updated to work properly. Please see the GSAP 3 release notes for details. Allows TweenLite and TweenMax to animate the raw style sheet rules which affect all objects of a particular selector rather than affecting an individual DOM element's style (that's what the CSSPlugin is for). For example, if you have a CSS class named ".myClass" that sets background-color to "#FF0000", you could tween that to a different color and ALL of the objects on the page that use ".myClass" would have their background color change. Typically it is best to use the regular CSSPlugin to animate css-related properties of individual elements so that you can get very precise control over each object, but sometimes it can be useful to tween the global rules themselves instead. For example, pseudo elements (like :after, :before, etc. are impossible to reference directly in JavaScript, but you can animate them using CSSRulePlugin as shown below. See the Pen CSSRulePlugin by GreenSock (@GreenSock) on CodePen. Learn more in the CSSRulePlugin documentation.
  5. Note: This plugin was removed from GSAP 3. Please see the GSAP 3 release notes for details. Tweens any rotation-related property to another value in a particular direction which can be either clockwise ("_cw" suffix), counter-clockwise ("_ccw" suffix), or in the shortest direction ("_short" suffix) in which case the plugin chooses the direction for you based on the shortest path. For example: //obj.rotation starts at 45 var obj = {rotation:45}; //tweens to the 270 position in a clockwise direction TweenLite.to(obj, 1, {directionalRotation:"270_cw"}); //tweens to the 270 position in a counter-clockwise direction TweenLite.to(obj, 1, {directionalRotation:"270_ccw"}); //tweens to the 270 position in the shortest direction (which, in this case, is counter-clockwise) TweenLite.to(obj, 1, {directionalRotation:"270_short"}); Notice that the value is in quotes, thus a string with a particular suffix indicating the direction ("_cw", "_ccw", or "_short"). You can also use the "+=" or "-=" prefix to indicate relative values. Learn more in the DirectionalRotationPlugin documentation.
  6. Note: This plugin was removed from GSAP 3. Please see the GSAP 3 release notes for details. Tweens any color-related property of any object, like myObject.borderColor from "rgb(255,0,51)" to "rgb(102,204,0)" (and you can define the initial color in almost any format like "#FF00CC" or "rgba(255,0,51,0.5)" or "red" or "#f0c" or 0xFF00CC or "hsl(105,50%,80%)"). New values are always set in the format "rgb(...)" (or rgba(...) for values that include alpha). You can tween an unlimited number of color properties simultaneously. Just use the associated property name inside the colorProps:{} object like this: //tweens myObject.borderColor and myObject.myCustomProp TweenLite.to(myObject, 1, {colorProps:{borderColor:"red", myCustomProp:"rgb(204,51,0)"}, ease:Linear.easeNone}); ColorPropsPlugin is NOT generally intended to be used with css-related color properties because the CSSPlugin already handles those. ColorPropsPlugin is meant to tween other color-related properties directly on your JavaScript object(s). To learn more read the ColorPropsPlugin documentation.

    RaphaelPlugin

    Note: This page was created for GSAP version 2. We have since released GSAP 3 with many improvements. While it is backward compatible with most GSAP 2 features, some parts may need to be updated to work properly. Please see the GSAP 3 release notes for details. Enables TweenLite and TweenMax to animate properties of Raphael JavaScript objects (see http://www.raphaeljs.com/). Raphael is a JavaScript framework that simplifies work with vector graphics on the web. For example: // creates canvas 550 × 400 at 10, 50 var paper = Raphael(10, 50, 550, 400); // creates rectangle at x = 50, y = 40, with a width of 200 and height of 100 var rect = paper.rect(50, 40, 200, 100); // sets the fill attribute of the rectangle to red (#f00) rect.attr("fill", "#f00"); // tween the fill to blue (#00f) and x to 100, y to 100, width to 100 and height to 50 over the course of 3 seconds using an ease of Power1.easeInOut TweenLite.to(rect, 3, {raphael:{fill:"#00f", x:100, y:100, width:100, height:50}, ease:Power1.easeInOut}); You can tween any of the properties that you would normally set using raphael's attr() method as well as the following transformation properties: rotation, scaleX, scaleY, skewX, skewY, tx and ty and even shortRotation which will rotate in the shortest direction to the destination value. tx and ty refer to the translation x and y properties (e and f from the element's matrix). This gives you a lot of control, even beyond what's easily accomplished through Raphael's own methods. Learn more in the RaphaelPlugin documentation.

    TimelineLite

    Note: This page was created for GSAP version 2. We have since released GSAP 3 with many improvements. While it is backward compatible with most GSAP 2 features, some parts may need to be updated to work properly. Please see the GSAP 3 release notes for details. TimelineLite is a lightweight, intuitive timeline class for building and managing sequences of TweenLite, TweenMax, TimelineLite, and/or TimelineMax instances. You can think of a TimelineLite instance like a container where you place tweens (or other timelines) over the course of time. build sequences easily by adding tweens with methods like to(), from(), staggerFrom(), add(), and more. tweens can overlap as much as you want and you have complete control over where they get placed on the timeline. add labels, play(), stop(), seek(), restart(), and even reverse() smoothly anytime. nest timelines within timelines as deeply as you want. set the progress of the timeline using its progress() method. For example, to skip to the halfway point, set myTimeline.progress(0.5); tween the time() or progress() values to fastforward/rewind the timeline. You could even attach a slider to one of these properties to give the user the ability to drag forwards/backwards through the timeline. speed up or slow down the entire timeline using timeScale(). You can even tween this property to gradually speed up or slow down. add onComplete, onStart, onUpdate, and/or onReverseComplete callbacks using the constructor’s vars object. use the powerful add() method to add labels, callbacks, tweens and timelines to a timeline. base the timing on frames instead of seconds if you prefer. Please note, however, that the timeline’s timing mode dictates its childrens’ timing mode as well. kill the tweens of a particular object with killTweensOf() or get the tweens of an object with getTweensOf() or get all the tweens/timelines in the timeline with getChildren() If you need even more features like, repeat(), repeatDelay(), yoyo(), currentLabel(), getLabelsArray(), getLabelAfter(), getLabelBefore(), getActive(), tweenTo() and more, check out TimelineMax which extends TimelineLite. Sample Code //instantiate a TimelineLite var tl = new TimelineLite(); //add a from() tween at the beginning of the timline tl.from(head, 0.5, {left:100, opacity:0}); //add another tween immediately after tl.from(subhead, 0.5, {left:-100, opacity:0}); //use position parameter "+=0.5" to schedule next tween 0.5 seconds after previous tweens end tl.from(feature, 0.5, {scale:.5, autoAlpha:0}, "+=0.5"); //use position parameter "-=0.5" to schedule next tween 0.25 seconds before previous tweens end. //great for overlapping tl.from(description, 0.5, {left:100, autoAlpha:0}, "-=0.25"); //add a label 0.5 seconds later to mark the placement of the next tween tl.add("stagger", "+=0.5") //to jump to this label use: tl.play("stagger"); //stagger the animation of all icons with 0.1s between each tween's start time //this tween is added tl.staggerFrom(icons, 0.2, {scale:0, autoAlpha:0}, 0.1, "stagger"); Demo See the Pen TimelineLite Control : new GS.com by GreenSock (@GreenSock) on CodePen. Watch The video below will walk you through the types of problems TimelineLite solves and illustrate the flexibility and power of our core sequencing tool. Learn more in the TimelineLite docs. For even more sequencing power and control take a look at TimelineMax.

    TimelineMax

    Note: This page was created for GSAP version 2. We have since released GSAP 3 with many improvements. While it is backward compatible with most GSAP 2 features, some parts may need to be updated to work properly. Please see the GSAP 3 release notes for details. TimelineMax extends TimelineLite, offering exactly the same functionality plus useful (but non-essential) features like repeat, repeatDelay, yoyo, currentLabel(), tweenTo(), tweenFromTo(), getLabelAfter(), getLabelBefore(), getActive() (and probably more in the future). It is the ultimate sequencing tool that acts like a container for tweens and other timelines, making it simple to control them as a whole and precisely manage their timing. Its easy to make complex sequences repeat with TimelineMax and there are plenty of methods and events that give you complete access to all aspects of your animation as shown in the demo below. See the Pen Burger Boy Finished / TimelineMax page by GreenSock (@GreenSock) on CodePen. Interesting note: The animation in the banner above is a mere 11 lines of TimelineMax code. The next demo illustrates many of the things TimelineLite and TimelineMax handle with ease, such as the ability to: insert multiple tweens with overlapping start times into a timeline create randomized bezier tweens control the entire set of tweens with a basic UI slider repeat the animation any number of times dynamically adjust the speed at runtime. Notice how the play / pause buttons smoothly accelerate and deccelerate? See the Pen Burger Boy Finished / TimelineMax page by GreenSock (@GreenSock) on CodePen Be sure to check out TimelineLite for more info on all the capabilities TimelineMax inherits. The chart below gives a birds-eye look at the methods these tools provide. ul.chart { width:360px; float:left; margin-right:30px; } ul.chart li:nth-child(1){ font-weight:700; list-style:none; margin-left:-20px; font-size:20px; margin-bottom:20px; } TimelineLite and TimelineMax Methods add() addLabel() addPause() call() clear() delay() duration() eventCallback exportRoot() from() fromTo() getChildren() getLabelTime() getTweensOf() invalidate() isActive() kill() pause() paused() play() progress() remove() removeLabel() render() restart() resume() reverse() reversed() seek() set() shiftChildren() staggerFrom() staggerFromTo() staggerTo() startTime() time() timeScale() to() totalDuration() totalProgress() totalTime() useFrames() Methods exclusive to TimelineMax currentLabel() getActive() getLabelAfter() getLabelBefore() getlLabelsArray() repeat() repeatDelay() tweenFromTo() tweenTo() yoyo()

    TweenMax

    Note: This page was created for GSAP version 2. We have since released GSAP 3 with many improvements. While it is backward compatible with most GSAP 2 features, some parts may need to be updated to work properly. Please see the GSAP 3 release notes for details. TweenMax is the most feature-packed (and popular) animation tool in the GSAP arsenal. For convenience and loading efficiency, it includes TweenLite, TimelineLite, TimelineMax, CSSPlugin, AttrPlugin, RoundPropsPlugin, BezierPlugin, and EasePack (all in one file). See the Pen GSAP Overview by GreenSock (@GreenSock) on CodePen. Quick links Getting started What's so special about GSAP? Full documentation Showcase (examples) Since TweenMax extends TweenLite, it can do ANYTHING TweenLite can do plus more. You can mix and match TweenLite and TweenMax in your project as you please. Like TweenLite, a TweenMax instance handles tweening one or more properties of any object (or array of objects) over time. TweenMax's unique special properties TweenMax's syntax is identical to TweenLite's. Notice how the TweenMax tween below uses the special properties: repeat, repeatDelay, yoyo and the onRepeat event callback. //basic illustration of TweenMax's repeat, repeatDelay, yoyo and onRepeat var box = document.getElementById("greenBox"), count = 0, tween; tween = TweenMax.to(box, 2, {left:"740px", repeat:10, yoyo:true, onRepeat:onRepeat, repeatDelay:0.5, ease:Linear.easeNone}); function onRepeat() { count++; box.innerHTML = count; TweenLite.set(box, {backgroundColor:"hsl(" + Math.random() * 255 + ", 90%, 60%)"}); } See the Pen TweenMax basic repeat and onRepeat by GreenSock (@GreenSock) on CodePen. Staggered animations TweenMax makes it easy to create staggered animations on multiple objects. The animations can overlap, run in direct sequence or have gaps between their start times. TweenMax's three stagger methods: TweenMax.staggerTo(), TweenMax.staggerFrom() and TweenMax.staggerFromTo() are literal one-line wonders. See the Pen TweenMax.staggerTo() by GreenSock (@GreenSock) on CodePen. Additional Methods TweenMax inherits a ton of methods from TweenLite and has quite a few of its own. ul.chart {width:300px; float:left; margin-right:80px; } ul.chart li:nth-child(1){ font-weight:bold; list-style:none; margin-left:-20px; font-size:20px; margin-bottom:20px; } TweenLite and TweenMax Methods delay() delayedCall() duration() eventCallback from() fromTo() getTweensOf() invalidate() isActive() kill() killDelayedCallsTo() killTweensOf() pause() paused() play() progress() restart() resume() reverse() reversed() seek() set() startTime() time() timeScale() to() totalDuration() totalProgress() totalTime() Methods exclusive to TweenMax getAllTweens() isTweening() killAll() killChildTweensOf() pauseAll() repeat() repeatDelay() resumeAll() staggerFrom() staggerFromTo() staggerTo() updateTo() yoyo() Learn more in the TweenMax documentation.

    TweenLite

    Note: This page was created for GSAP version 2. We have since released GSAP 3 with many improvements. While it is backward compatible with most GSAP 2 features, some parts may need to be updated to work properly. Please see the GSAP 3 release notes for details. TweenLite is an extremely fast, lightweight, and flexible animation tool that serves as the foundation of the GreenSock Animation Platform (GSAP). A TweenLite instance handles tweening one or more properties of any object (or array of objects) over time. TweenLite can be used on its own to accomplish most animation chores with minimal file size or it can be used in conjunction with advanced sequencing tools like TimelineLite or TimelineMax to make complex tasks much simpler. Basic Usage The most basic use of TweenLite would be to tween a numeric property of a generic JavaScript object. var demo = {score:0}, scoreDisplay = document.getElementById("scoreDisplay"); //create a tween that changes the value of the score property of the demo object from 0 to 100 over the course of 20 seconds. //each time the tween updates call the function showScore() which will handle displaying the value of demo.score. var tween = TweenLite.to(demo, 20, {score:100, onUpdate:showScore}) function showScore() { scoreDisplay.innerHTML = demo.score.toFixed(2); } See the Pen TweenLite Tween Numeric Property by GreenSock (@GreenSock) on CodePen. note: Click on the "Result" tab to see the value of score animate. Animate CSS Properties For most HTML5 projects you will probably want to animate DOM elements. No problem. Once you load CSSPlugin TweenLite can easily animate CSS properties of DOM elements. /*external js http://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/gsap/latest/TweenLite.min.js http://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/gsap/latest/plugins/CSSPlugin.min.js */ window.onload = function() { var logo = document.getElementById("logo"); TweenLite.to(logo, 2, {left:"542px", backgroundColor:"black", borderBottomColor:"#90e500", color:"white"}); } See the Pen Animate Multiple Properties by GreenSock (@GreenSock) on CodePen. note: Click on the "Result" tab to see the animation. TweenLite isn't limited to animating DOM elements, in fact it isn't tied to any rendering layer. It works great with canvas and WebGL too! Control TweenLite is packed with methods that give you precise control over every tween. Play, pause, reverse, and adjust the timeScale (speed) whenever you need to. The demo below shows the power of just a handful of TweenLite's methods. See the Pen Control Playback by GreenSock (@GreenSock) on CodePen. note: Click on the "JS" tab to see detailed comments about what each button does. To see more of TweenLite in action visit our Jump Start guide and extensive CodePen collections. And so much more TweenLite is loaded with even more features allowing you to: kill tweens find active tweens specify how overwriting of tweens should be handled get/set the time, duration and progress of a tween delay tweens pass arguments into event callback functions specify values to tween from The best place to get all the juicy details on what TweenLite can do is in the TimelineLite documentation. Need even more tweening power? Be sure to check out TweenLite's beefy big brother TweenMax.
  12. GSAP 3 is the most significant upgrade we have ever had. With 50+ new features, there's a lot to be excited about, but to keep this post manageable, we’ll cover only 5. You might also be interested in the GSAP 3 highlights video. See the release notes for all the juicy details. 1. Half the size of the old TweenMax! No kidding! GSAP retains almost all of its old functionality while adding 50+ features. We’ve learned a lot over the years and hopefully that shows. The core has been completely rebuilt from the ground up as modern ES modules. 2. Simplified API No more “Lite” and “Max” flavors. TweenMax, TweenLite, TimelineLite, and TimelineMax have all been consolidated into a single "gsap" object. So simple! For example: //simple tween like the old TweenMax.to(...) gsap.to(".class", {duration:2, x:100}); //create a timeline and add a tween var tl = gsap.timeline(); tl.to(".class", {duration:2, x:100}); Internally, there's one "Tween" class (replaces TweenLite/TweenMax) and one "Timeline" class (replaces TimelineLite/TimelineMax), and both have all of the features like repeat, yoyo, etc. When you call one of the gsap methods like .to(), .from(), etc., it returns an instance of the appropriate class with easily chainable methods. Duration is now defined in the vars object. This allows several benefits such as: Improved readability It fits much better with keyframes It allows default durations to be inherited (more on that below) You can use function-based values //OLD - duration was 2nd parameter TweenMax.to(".class", 1, {x:100}); //NEW - duration is now a property of the vars object gsap.to(".class", {duration:1, x:100}); All tweens are now stagger-able. There’s no need for the old staggerTo(), staggerFrom(), or staggerFromTo() methods because you can add staggers to regular tweens: //simple stagger gsap.to(".class", { x: "+=100", duration: 1, stagger: 0.5 //space each element's animation out by 0.5 seconds }); //advanced stagger gsap.to(".class", { x: "+=100", duration: 1, stagger: { amount: 2, from: "center", grid: "auto", onComplete: myFunction //define callbacks inside the stagger to make them apply to each sub-tween } }); See the Pen GSAP 3.0 Stagger demo by GreenSock (@GreenSock) on CodePen. For more information about GSAP’s advanced stagger functionality, see this codepen. New, more compact ease format. less typing, more readable, and zero import hassles. Here's the new convention for all of the standard eases: //old way Elastic.easeOut Elastic.easeIn Elastic.easeInOut Elastic.easeOut.config(1, 0.5) SteppedEase.config(5) //new way "elastic" //same as "elastic.out" "elastic.in" "elastic.inOut" "elastic(1, 0.5)" //same as "elastic.out(1, 0.5)" "steps(5)" Backwards compatible The new GSAP even adjusts itself to accommodate the old syntax! There's technically no more TweenMax, TweenLite, TimelineLite, or TimelineMax, but they're all aliased so that the vast majority of legacy code still works, untouched! You don't have to rewrite all your code for GSAP 3, but we'd recommend shifting to the new, more concise syntax for all your new projects. 3. Inheritance/Defaults You don't have to keep setting the same ease over and over again...or duration...or whatever. Just set defaults on the parent timeline and let them be inherited by all its children! For example this repetitive code can be shortened, saving you time. //old way, without timeline defaults var tl = new TimelineMax(); tl.to(obj1, 2, {ease: Power2.easeInOut, rotation: -180}) .to(obj2, 2, {ease: Power2.easeInOut, rotation: -360}) .to(obj3, 2, {ease: Power2.easeInOut, rotation: -180}); //new way, with timeline defaults var tl = gsap.timeline({defaults:{ease: "power2.inOut", duration: 2}}); tl.to(obj1, {rotation: -180}) //child tweens will inherit the duration and from the parent timeline! .to(obj2, {rotation: -360}) .to(obj1, {rotation: -180}); See the Pen GSAP 3.0 Cube Walk by Pete Barr (@petebarr) on CodePen. Any defaults you set this way will get pushed into every child tween - it’s not limited to a certain subset of properties. This can really save you some typing! Inherited defaults are easily overwritten anytime a property is declared on a child. 4. All new MotionPathPlugin The new MotionPathPlugin makes it very easy to move any element along an SVG <path>! For more information about the MotionPathPlugin, check out its documentation and the video below. See the Pen GSAP 3.0 Stagger demo by GreenSock (@GreenSock) on CodePen. Club GreenSock members also get access to the new MotionPathHelper utility that lets you EDIT the motion path interactively in the browser. It’s never been so easy to move elements along a path! 5. New utility methods GSAP 3 exposes some surprisingly useful utility methods that might save you time and hassle. Need values to snap to the closest one in an array? Use gsap.utils.snap(). Tired of trying to figure out how to pull a random element out of an array? Let gsap.utils.random() do it for you. Want to distribute any value among an array of elements, complete with easing? It’s a piece of cake with gsap.utils.distribute(). Here’s how to use the gsap.utils.interpolate() method: //numbers let value = gsap.utils.interpolate(0, 100, 0.5); // 50 //strings let value = gsap.utils.interpolate("20px", "40px", 0.5); // 30px //colors let value = gsap.utils.interpolate("red", "blue", 0.5); // rgba(128,0,128,1) //objects let value = gsap.utils.interpolate({a:0, b:10, c:"red"}, {a:100, b:20, c:"blue"}, 0.5); // {a: 50, b: 15, c: "rgba(128,0,128,1)"} There's also an explainer video about how to use it. Using GSAP's built in utility functions can make complex code simple. Check out the video below to learn more and see an example: For a full list of the utility functions, some demos, and how to use them, check out the docs. There's waaaaay more... We've only scratched the surface of all the improvements in GSAP 3. Check out the release notes for a full list of the features and changes. There's also an updated getting started page. Ready to play? GSAP 3 Starter Pen (a CodePen template that already has the GSAP 3 files loaded. Fork away and have a blast!) This pen allows you to copy the resource URLs easily. Or download the files to use locally. Using a build tool? npm install gsap will get you the files. If you're a Club GreenSock user, there's a gsap-bonus.tgz tarball file in the local download above that you can simply drop into your project's folder and then npm install ./gsap-bonus.tgz and BOOM, it'll be installed just like any other package! See the installation docs for more information. Questions? Bugs? Hit us up in the forums or contact us directly. We'd love to hear what you think of GSAP 3. Happy tweening!
  13. The GreenSock Animation Platform (GSAP) animates anything JavaScript can touch (CSS properties, SVG, React, canvas, generic objects, whatever) and solves countless browser inconsistencies, all with blazing speed (up to 20x faster than jQuery). See why GSAP is used by over 8,500,000 sites and many major brands. Hang in there through the learning curve and you'll discover how fun animating with code can be. We promise it's worth your time. Quick links Loading GSAP Tweening Basics CSSPlugin 2D and 3D transforms Easing Staggers Callbacks Sequencing with Timelines Timeline control Getter / Setter methods Club GreenSock We'll cover the most popular features here but keep the GSAP docs handy for all the details. First, let's talk about what GSAP actually does... GSAP is a property manipulator Animation ultimately boils down to changing property values many times per second, making something appear to move, fade, spin, etc. GSAP snags a starting value, an ending value and then interpolates between them 60 times per second. For example, changing the x coordinate of an object from 0 to 1000 over the course of 1 second makes it move quickly to the right. Gradually changing opacity from 1 to 0 makes an element fade out. Your job as an animator is to decide which properties to change, how quickly, and the motion's style (known as easing - we'll get to that later). To be technically accurate, we could have named GSAP the "GreenSock Property Manipulator" (GSPM) but that doesn't have the same ring. DOM, SVG, <canvas>, and beyond GSAP doesn't have a pre-defined list of properties it can handle. It's super flexible, adjusting to almost anything you throw at it. GSAP can animate all of the following: CSS: 2D and 3D transforms, colors, width, opacity, border-radius, margin, and almost every CSS value. SVG attributes: viewBox, width, height, fill, stroke, cx, r, opacity, etc. Plugins like MorphSVG and DrawSVG can be used for advanced effects. Any numeric value For example, an object that gets rendered to an <canvas>. Animate the camera position in a 3D scene or filter values. GSAP is often used with Three.js and Pixi.js. Once you learn the basic syntax you'll be able to use GSAP anywhere that JavaScript runs. This guide will focus on the most popular use case: animating CSS properties of DOM elements.

    MorphSVGPlugin

    Note: This page was created for GSAP version 2. We have since released GSAP 3 with many improvements. While it is backward compatible with most GSAP 2 features, some parts may need to be updated to work properly. Please see the GSAP 3 release notes for details. MorphSVGPlugin morphs SVG paths by animating the data inside the "d" attribute. The video explains more... It has never been easier to morph between SVG shapes. First, let's cover what this new plugin can do: Morph <path> data even if the number (and type) of points is completely different between the start and end shapes! Most other SVG shape morphing tools require that the number of points matches. Morph a <polyline> or <polygon> to a different set of points There's a utility function, MorphSVGPlugin.convertToPath() that can convert primitive shapes like <circle>, <rect>, <ellipse>, <polygon>, <polyline>, and <line> directly into the equivalent <path> that looks identical to the original and is swapped right into the DOM. Draw the resulting shape to <canvas> (via a render function or set a MorphSVGPlugin.defaultRender) Use either linear interpolation (the default) or a newer "rotational" type to get more natural looking morphs Optionally define a "shapeIndex" that controls how the points get mapped. This affects what the inbetween state looks like during animation. Instead of passing in raw path data as text, you can simply feed in selector text or an element and the plugin will grab the data it needs from there, making workflow easier. How does it work? MorphSVGPlugin does a ton of heavy lifting so that you don't have to. You can morph a circle into a hippo with a single line of code: TweenLite.to("#circle", 1, {morphSVG:"#hippo"}); See the Pen MorphSVG : Docs Basic Usage by GreenSock (@GreenSock) on CodePen. API MorphSVGPlugin needs to know what shape to morph to (and optionally which shapeIndex to use). When only specifying a shape, MorphSVGPlugin can take a wide range of values. Selector string TweenLite.to("#circle", 1, {morphSVG:"#hippo"}); An SVG element var endShape = document.getElementById("hippo"); TweenLite.to("#circle", 1, {morphSVG:endShape}); Points for <polyline> or <polygon> elements: TweenLite.to(“#polygon”, 2, {morphSVG:"240,220 240,70 70,70 70,220"}); Strings for <path> elements TweenLite.to(“#path”, 2, {morphSVG:"M10 315 L 110 215 A 30 50 0 0 1 162.55 162.45 L 172.55 152.45 A 30 50 -45 0 1 215.1 109.9 L 315 10"}); *Note: if the shape you pass in is a <rect>, <circle>, <ellipse> (or similar), MorphSVGPlugin will internally create path data from those shapes. shapeIndex The shapeIndex property allows you to adjust how the points in the start shape are mapped. In order to prevent points from drifting wildly during the animation MorphSVGPlugin needs to find a point in the start path that is in close proximity to the first point in the end path. Once that point is found it will map the next point in the start path to the second point in the end path (and so on and so on). Due to the complexity of vector art there will be times that you may want to change which point in the start path gets mapped to the first point in the end path. This is where shapeIndex comes in. In order to specify the shapeIndex you need to use an object {} with shape and shapeIndex properties. The following code will map the third point in the square to the first point in the star. TweenLite.to("#square", 1, {morphSVG:{shape:"#star", shapeIndex:3}}); findShapeIndex() utility Experimenting with shapeIndex can be a bit of a guessing game. To make things easier we have created a stand-alone utility function called findShapeIndex(). This function provides an interactive user interface to help you visualize where the start point is, change it and preview the animation. You can load findShapeIndex() from: https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/s.cdpn.io/16327/findShapeIndex.js Once its loaded you simply tell it which shapes to use. findShapeIndex("#square", "#star"); Or pass in raw data: findShapeIndex("#square", "M10 315 L 110 215 A 30 50 0 0 1 162.55 162.45 L 172.55 152.45 A 30 50 -45 0 1 215.1 109.9 L 315 10"); See the Pen findShapeIndex() Docs by GreenSock (@GreenSock) on CodePen. The best way to get started is to drop your SVG into the pen above and alter the IDs to match your svg. Be sure to watch the video above which clearly illustrates how shapeIndex and findShapeIndex() work. Additional Notes shapeIndex only works on closed paths. if you supply a negative shapeIndex the start path will be completely reversed (which can be quite useful). Converting SVG shapes to paths Technically it’s only feasible to morph <path> elements or <polyline>/<polygon> elements, but what if you want to morph a <circle> or <rect> or <ellipse> or <line>? No problem - just tap into the utility method and have the plugin do the conversion for you: MorphSVGPlugin.convertToPath("#elementID"); You can pass in an element or selector text, so you could also have it convert ALL of those elements with one line: MorphSVGPlugin.convertToPath("circle, rect, ellipse, line, polygon, polyline"); This literally swaps in a for each one directly in the DOM, and it should look absolutely identical. It’ll keep the attributes, like the “id” attribute. So after the conversion, you should be able to target the elements pretty easily, just as you would before. <!-- An svg Like this: --> <rect id="endShape" width="100" height="100" fill="red"/> <!-- becomes --> <path id="endShape" fill="red" d="M100,0 v100 h-100 v-100 h100z"></path> Rotational Morphs?

    CustomEase

    Note: This page was created for GSAP version 2. We have since released GSAP 3 with many improvements. While it is backward compatible with most GSAP 2 features, some parts may need to be updated to work properly. Please see the GSAP 3 release notes for details. Are your animations meant to feel playful? Robotic? Slick? Realistic? If they had a voice, what would they sound like? To become an animation rock star, you must develop a keen sense of easing because that's what determines the style of movement between point A and point B. GreenSock's new CustomEase frees you from the limitations of canned easing options. Create literally any ease imaginable. Zero limitations. CSS animations and WAAPI offer cubic-bezier() which is great but with only two control points it's impossible to create more complex effects like bouncing, elastic, wiggles, rough/jerky eases, etc. Plus you can't make an ease return to its starting values (like a ball jumping into the air and falling back to the ground with a bounce). Features Unlimited anchors and control points. Copy/Paste any SVG <path> (including directly from Adobe Illustrator). Use CSS cubic-bezier() values (For example, from cubic-bezier.com). Editor has snapping, undo, sample code and other conveniences. Start with any standard ease and customize it. getSVGData() method turns any ease into SVG <path> data for display at the size you define. Extremely optimized for runtime performance. Free for anyone with a GreenSock account.

    CSSPlugin

    Note: This page was created for GSAP version 2. We have since released GSAP 3 with many improvements. While it is backward compatible with most GSAP 2 features, some parts may need to be updated to work properly. Please see the GSAP 3 release notes for details. With the help of the CSSPlugin, GSAP can animate almost any css-related property of DOM elements including the obvious things like width, height, margin, padding, top, left, and more plus more interesting things like transforms (rotation, scaleX, scaleY, skewX, skewY, x, y, rotationX, and rotationY), colors, opacity, and lots more. Don't forget to load the CSSPlugin to enable these capabilities. Normally, css-specific properties would need to be wrapped in their own object and passed in like TweenLite.to(element, 1, {css:{left:"100px", top:"50px"}}); so that the engine knows that those properties belong to the CSSPlugin, but because animating DOM elements in the browser is so common, TweenLite and TweenMax (as of version 1.8.0) automatically check to see if the target is a DOM element and if it is (and you haven't already defined a "css" object in the vars parameter), the engine creates that css object for you and shifts any properties that aren't reserved (like onComplete, ease, delay, etc. or plugin keywords like scrollTo, raphael, easel, etc.) into that css object when the tween renders for the first time. In the code examples below, we'll use the more concise style that omits the css:{} object but be aware that either style is acceptable. See the Pen CSSPlugin by GreenSock (@GreenSock) on CodePen. Learn more in the CSSPlugin documentation.

SplitText is an easy to use JavaScript utility that allows you to split HTML text into characters, words and lines. Its easy to use, extremely flexible and works all the way back to IE8. Although SplitText is naturally a good fit for creating HTML5 text animation effects with GreenSock's animation tools, it has no dependencies on GSAP, jQuery or any other libraries. .videoNav { color:#555; margin-top: 12px; } 0:00 Intro 0:21 SplitText solves problems 2:01 Basic Split 3:34 Configuration options 6:35 Animation View the JS panel in the Codepen demo above to see how easy it is to: Split text into words and characters. Pass the chars array into a TweenMax staggerFrom() tween for animation. Revert the text back to its pre-split state when you are done animating. Additional features and notes You can specify a new class to be added to each split element and also add an auto-incrementing class like .word1, .word2, .word3 etc. View demo You don't have to manually insert <br>tags, SplitText honors natural line breaks. SplitText doesn't force non-breaking spaces into the divs like many other solutions on the web do. SplitText is not designed to work with SVG <text> nodes.

    ModifiersPlugin

    Note: This page was created for GSAP version 2. We have since released GSAP 3 with many improvements. While it is backward compatible with most GSAP 2 features, some parts may need to be updated to work properly. Please see the GSAP 3 release notes for details. You can define a "modifier" function for almost any property; this modifier intercepts the value that GSAP would normally apply on each update ("tick"), feeds it to your function as the first parameter and lets you run custom logic, returning a new value that GSAP should then apply. This is perfect for tasks like snapping, clamping, wrapping, or other dynamic effects. It's completely up to you! Parameters: value, target The modifier functions are passed two parameters: value (number | string) - the about-to-be-applied value from the regular tween. This is often a number, but could be a string based on whatever the property requires. For example if you're animating the x property, it would be a number, but if you're animating the left property it could be something like "212px", or for the boxShadow property it could be "10px 5px 10px rgb(255,0,0)". target (object) - the target itself For example, change the x of one object based on the y of another object or change rotation based on the direction it is moving. Below are some examples that will help you get familiarized with the syntax. Snap rotation The tween below animates 360 degrees but the modifier function forces the value to jump to the closest 45-degree increment. Take note how the modifier function gets passed the value of the property that is being modified, in this case a rotation number. See the Pen BzJxBB by GreenSock (@GreenSock) on CodePen. Clamp with Modulus The tween below animates x to 500 but the modifier function forces the value to wrap so that it's always between 0 and 100. See the Pen BzJxBB by GreenSock (@GreenSock) on CodePen. Carousel Wrap Have you ever built a carousel and wrestled with making it loop seamlessly? Perhaps you duplicated each asset or wrote some code that moved each item back to the beginning when it reached the end. With ModifiersPlugin you can get a seamless repeating carousel with a single staggerTo()! The example below tweens each box to a relative x position of "+=500". Click the "show overflow" button to see each box get reset to x:0 when it goes beyond 500... See the Pen QEdpLe by GreenSock (@GreenSock) on CodePen. Advanced demos We've only scratched the surface of what ModifiersPlugin can do. Our moderator Blake Bowen has been putting this new plugin to the test and has an impressive collection of demos that will surely inspire you. View the docs for ModifiersPlugin. Caveats: ModifiersPlugin requires TweenLite or TweenMax version 1.19.0 or later. RoundPropsPlugin taps into the same mechanism internally as ModifiersPlugin (to maximize efficiency, minimize memory, and keep kb down). Think of a roundProps tween as just a shortcut that creates a modifier that applies Math.round(), thus you cannot do BOTH roundProps and a modifier on the same property. It's easy to get that functionality, though, by just doing Math.round() inside the modifier function.

    CustomWiggle

    Note: This page was created for GSAP version 2. We have since released GSAP 3 with many improvements. While it is backward compatible with most GSAP 2 features, some parts may need to be updated to work properly. Please see the GSAP 3 release notes for details. CustomWiggle extends CustomEase (think of it like a wrapper that creates a CustomEase under the hood based on the variables you pass in), allowing you to not only set the number of wiggles, but also the type of wiggle (there are 5 types; see demo below). Advanced users can even alter the plotting of the wiggle curves along either axis using amplitudeEase and timingEase special properties. Demo: CustomWiggle Types See the Pen CustomWiggle Demo : resized by GreenSock (@GreenSock) on CodePen. Options wiggles (Integer) - number of oscillations back and forth. Default: 10 type (String) "easeOut" | "easeInOut" | "anticipate" | "uniform" | "random" - the type (or style) of wiggle (see demo above). Default: "easeOut" amplitudeEase (Ease) - provides advanced control over the shape of the amplitude (y-axis in the ease visualizer). You define an ease that controls the amplitude's progress from 1 toward 0 over the course of the tween. Defining an amplitudeEase (or timingEase) will override the "type" (think of the 5 "types" as convenient presets for amplitudeEase and timingEase combinations). See the example codepen to play around and visualize how it works. timingEase (Ease) - provides advanced control over how the waves are plotted over time (x-axis in the ease visualizer). Defining an timingEase (or amplitudeEase) will override the "type" (think of the 5 "types" as convenient presets for amplitudeEase and timingEase combinations). See the example codepen to play around and visualize how it works. How do you control the strength of the wiggle (or how far it goes)? Simply by setting the tween property values themselves. For example, a wiggle to rotation:30 would be stronger than rotation:10. Remember, and ease just controls the ratio of movement toward whatever value you supply for each property in your tween. Sample code //Create a wiggle with 6 oscillations (default type:"easeOut") CustomWiggle.create("myWiggle", {wiggles:6}); //now use it in an ease. "rotation" will wiggle to 30 and back just as much in the opposite direction, ending where it began. TweenMax.to(".class", 2, {rotation:30, ease:"myWiggle"}); //Create a 10-wiggle anticipation ease: CustomWiggle.create("funWiggle", {wiggles:10, type:"anticipate"}); TweenMax.to(".class", 2, {rotation:30, ease:"funWiggle"}); Wiggling isn't just for "rotation"; you can use it for any property. For example, you could create a swarm effect by using just 2 randomized wiggle tweens on "x" and "y", as demonstrated here. Where can I get it?

    CustomBounce

    Note: This page was created for GSAP version 2. We have since released GSAP 3 with many improvements. While it is backward compatible with most GSAP 2 features, some parts may need to be updated to work properly. Please see the GSAP 3 release notes for details. GSAP always had the tried-and-true Bounce.easeOut, but there was no way to customize how "bouncy" it was, nor could you get a synchronized squash and stretch effect during the bounce because: The "bounce" ease needs to stick to the ground momentarily at the point of the bounce while the squashing occurs. Bounce.easeOut offers no such customization. There was no way to create the corresponding [synchronized] scaleX/scaleY ease for the squashing/stretching. CustomEase solves this now, but it'd still be very difficult to manually draw that ease with all the points lined up in the right spots to match up with the bounces. With CustomBounce, you can set a few parameters and it'll create BOTH CustomEases for you (one for the bounce, and one [optionally] for the squash/stretch). Think of CustomBounce like a wrapper that creates a CustomEase under the hood based on the variables you pass in. Options strength (Number) - a number between 0 and 1 that determines how "bouncy" the ease is, so 0.9 will have a lot more bounces than 0.3. Default: 0.7 endAtStart (Boolean) - if true, the ease will end back where it started, allowing you to get an effect like an object sitting on the ground, leaping into the air, and bouncing back down to a stop. Default: false squash (Number) - controls how long the squash should last (the gap between bounces, when it appears "stuck"). Typically 2 is a good number, but 4 (as an example) would make the squash longer in relation to the rest of the ease. Default: 0 squashID (String) - the ID that should be assigned to the squash ease. The default is whatever the ID of the bounce is plus "-squash" appended to the end. For example, CustomBounce.create("hop", {strength:0.6, squash:2}) would default to a squash ease ID of "hop-squash". How do you get the bounce and the squash/stretch to work together? You'd use two tweens; one for the position ("y"), and the other for the scaleX/scaleY, with both running at the same time: //Create a custom bounce ease: CustomBounce.create("myBounce", {strength:0.6, squash:3, squashID:"myBounce-squash"}); //do the bounce by affecting the "y" property. TweenMax.from(".class", 2, {y:-200, ease:"myBounce"}); //and do the squash/stretch at the same time: TweenMax.to(".class", 2, {scaleX:140, scaleY:60, ease:"myBounce-squash", transformOrigin:"center bottom"}); See the Pen CustomBounce from GreenSock by GreenSock (@GreenSock) on CodePen.

Your animation workflow is about to get a major boost. GSDevTools gives you a visual UI for interacting with and debugging GSAP animations, complete with advanced playback controls, keyboard shortcuts, global synchronization and more. Jump to specific scenes, set in/out points, play in slow motion to reveal intricate details, and even switch to a "minimal" mode on small screens. GSDevTools makes building and reviewing GSAP animations simply delightful. Get Started Load the JavaScript file //be sure to use a path that works in your dev environment Requirements GSDevTools requires TweenMax (well, actually just CSSPlugin, TweenLite, TimelineLite, AttrPlugin which are all included in TweenMax) version 1.20.3 or higher. It also uses Draggable under the hood, but in order to minimize hassle for end users, Draggable is included inside the GSDevTools file itself. How do I get it? GSDevTools is available to Club GreenSock members ("Shockingly Green" and above). Just download GSAP with the bonus files zip from your Dashboard. Try GSDevTools for free on CodePen. FAQ Why is my Global Timeline 1000 seconds long? That means you've probably got an infinitely repeating animation somewhere. GSDevTools caps its duration at 1000 seconds. Scrubbing to Infinity is awkward. Does loading GSDevTools impact runtime performance? Since it must monitor and record the root timeline, yes, there is a slight performance hit but probably not noticeable. Keep in mind that usually you'll only load GSDevTools while you're developing/reviewing your animations and then remove it when you're ready to launch, so ultimately it shouldn't be much of a factor anyway. Why isn't GSDevTools in the CDN or Github repo? Because it's a membership benefit of Club GreenSock. It's a way for us to give back to those who support our ongoing development efforts. That's why we've been able to continue innovating for over a decade. See https://greensock.com/why-license for details about our philosophy. Does GSDevTools work with other animation libraries? Nope, it depends on some unique capabilities baked into the GSAP architecture. What will I do with all the time this tool saves me? Take up a new hobby, ponder deep philosophical questions, make cookies - it's up to you.

While it is backward compatible with most GSAP 2 features, some parts may need to be updated to work properly. Please see the GSAP 3 release notes for details. Tweens the text content of a DOM element, replacing it one character at a time (or one word at a time if you set the delimiter to " " (a space) or you can even use a custom delimiter). So when the tween is finished, the DOM element's text has been completely replaced. This also means that if you rewind/restart the tween, the text will be reverted. Here is a simple example of replacing the text in yourElement: //replaces yourElement's text with "This is the new text" over the course of 2 seconds TweenLite.to(yourElement, 2, {text:"This is the new text", ease:Linear.easeNone}); If you'd like to use a different delimiter so that instead of replacing character-by-character, it gets replaced word-by-word, just pass an object with configuration properties like this: //replaces word-by-word because the delimiter is " " (a space) TweenLite.to(yourElement, 2, {text:{value:"This is the new text", delimiter:" "}, ease:Linear.easeNone}); You can even add a new css class to the new text as it comes in.

Allows TweenLite and TweenMax to animate the scroll position of the window (like doing window.scrollTo(x, y)) or a <div> DOM element (like doing myDiv.scrollTop = y; myDiv.scrollLeft = x;). To scroll the window to a particular position, use window as the target of the tween like this: //scroll to 400 pixels down from the top TweenLite.to(window, 2, {scrollTo:400}); //or to scroll to the element with the ID "#someID": TweenLite.to(window, 2, {scrollTo:"#someID"}); //or to specify which axis (x or y), use the object syntax: TweenLite.to(window, 2, {scrollTo:{y:400, x:250}}); Or to tween the content of a div, make sure you've set the overflow:scroll on the div and then do this: //scroll to 250 pixels down from the top of the content in the div TweenLite.to(myDiv, 2, {scrollTo:250}); Learn more in the ScrollToPlugin documentation.

Tweens special EaselJS-related properties for things like saturation, contrast, tint, colorize, brightness, exposure, and hue which leverage EaselJS's ColorFilter and ColorMatrixFilter (see http://www.createjs.com/#!/EaselJS for more information about EaselJS). Of course you don't need the plugin to tween normal numeric properties of EaselJS objects (like x and y), but some filters or effects require special manipulation which is what EaselPlugin is for. Currently it only handles special properties related to ColorFilter and ColorMatrixFilter, and it can tween the "frame" property of a MovieClip. GreenSock's EaselPlugin exposes convenient properties that aren't a part of EaselJS's API like "tint", "tintAmount", "exposure", and "brightness" for ColorFilter, as well as "saturation", "hue", "contrast", "colorize", and "colorizeAmount" for ColorMatrixFilter. Learn more in the EaselPlugin documentation.
