    Why Greensock?

    Marsseats Level 1

      Hello everyone, everywhere i look, in case of getting further in Adobe Edge, i see Greensock.


      Also Paul Trani's tutorials...Why?

      Most of the things,..maybe everything can be done with Edge...or do i mis the point??


      When i look at the site of Greensock....i see wonderfull, quick and smooth animations...is that the power of Greensock?


      If yes, i must study on, it not... i prefer the interface-way by Edge, only, mine animations or not so smooth ;-(

            My opinion is that with greensock you can achieve some results much quicker as in some things the code is much simplified.

              Thanks, so the engine of greensock should be quicker...

              I'm working in edge with the time-line, how does that goes with Greensock...?

              paste an item, and in the code telling what to do...without doing anything in the timeline...?

                  Thanks again...


                  hmmm...how will i start? importing items in Edge, and then do a little animation...saving it, and then try to make animation by green sock?

                  or just import items and then do the animation?

                  ( i watch many tutorials on youtube...but i didn't see how to start, most of them goes directly in code without edge,,, ;-(

                  Sorry, when i sound dumb...but i now totally working in Edge...and it goes okay, but the animations in green sock looks smoother...

                    first start animating with edge in timeline and start using many time the keyframes in order to do smoother animation without coding.

                    Then try to animate with coding.

                    It is not easy task.


                    Here http://greensock.com/jump-start-js


                    try to do them all to understand how it is working. at least the basics.

                      thanks again 2x


                      "last question"


                      i saw the jumpstart...but i'm a null in coding ;-) its hard to understanding..


                      can i make a start in Edge and then change it, or is All-the-way Edge of All-the-way Greensock and coding..

                      What i thought...When i start a simple animation....a square which goes from left to right...

                      and open that .html , to change it with greensock...is that a work-around or won't work?


                      I have made that...but in the .html i can't find / see the line that creates the animation...;-(


                      Sorry for my skills....

                          Hi Marsseats


                          Some months ago I have the same concern.

                          If you want smooth animations you need to use GreenSock.

                          and user Resdesign sent me this nice sample of how to use GreenSock, I hope it helps you



                          sample here:

                            Oke thanks, i see it...


                            2 blocks...which are gonna move...


                            As far as i can see it right now,,,you can setup in edge the basics of the items...and then do the rest in gsap...

                            i'm gonna try it...( the easy way is by edge... wysiwyg..transforming, instead of moving by code (gsap) but i see the smoothness...
