  1. I was asked yesterday about animating to/from backgroundSize: "cover" or "contain" with GSAP, so I figured I'd share the solution here in case it helps anyone else. The problem: GSAP interpolates between numbers, but how is it supposed to interpolate between something like "300px 250px" and "contain" (not a number)? So I whipped together a function that basically translates "contain" or "cover" into their px-based equivalents for that particular element at whatever size it is then. Once we've got it converted, it's easy to animate. //this function converts the backgroundSize of an element from "cover" or "contain" or "auto" into px-based dimensions. To set it immediately, pass true as the 2nd parameter. function getBGSize(element, setInPx) { var e = (typeof(element) === "string") ? document.querySelector(element) : element, cs = window.getComputedStyle(e), imageUrl = cs.backgroundImage, size = cs.backgroundSize, image, w, h, iw, ih, ew, eh, ratio; if (imageUrl && !/\d/g.test(size)) { image = new Image(); image.setAttribute("src", imageUrl.replace(/(^url\("|^url\('|^url\(|"\)$|'\)$|\)$)/gi, "")); //remove any url() wrapper. Note: some browsers include quotes, some don't. iw = image.naturalWidth; ih = image.naturalHeight; ratio = iw / ih; ew = e.offsetWidth; eh = e.offsetHeight; if (!iw || !ih) { console.log("getBGSize() failed; image hasn't loaded yet."); } if (size === "cover" || size === "contain") { if ((size === "cover") === (iw / ew > ih / eh)) { h = eh; w = eh * ratio; } else { w = ew; h = ew / ratio; } } else { //"auto" w = iw; h = ih; } size = Math.ceil(w) + "px " + Math.ceil(h) + "px"; if (setInPx) { e.style.backgroundSize = size; } } return size; } The only catch is that the image must be already loaded, otherwise it's impossible to figure out the native dimensions of the image (aspect ratio). While it's technically possible to add this functionality into CSSPlugin, it didn't seem advisable because it eats up a fair amount of kb and it's EXTREMELY uncommon for folks to want to animate to/from a background-size of cover or contain. So maybe 0.0001% of the audience would benefit but 100% would pay the kb price. Didn't seem worthwhile, so a helper function like this struck me as more appropriate. Feel free to chime in if you disagree. Happy tweening!
  2. Hi! I've ran into this. < var div = document.createElement('div'); < TweenMax.set(div, {backgroundSize: 'cover'}); < console.log(div.style.backgroundSize); > "50% 0px" It's should be "cover", isn't it?
