Hello everyone.


After searching through the forums i've found no particular subject related to SVG filter effects. Is there any support for these filter effects within GSAP at the moment? Attached is my codepen where I have set my SVG to have a GaussionBlur with stdDeviation of 0,50. What I want to do is animate or update that number from 0,50 to 0,0. 



Any ideas / suggestions as to how I might go about doing this in a timeline? 


Thanks for listening!

To add to Carl's great advise:


Example of using GSAP to animate SVG filters .. in this case hueRotate using feColorMatrix (full cross browser including IE10+)


See the Pen MwPzox?editors=101 by jonathan (@jonathan) on CodePen


Example of using GSAP to animate CSS Filters .. in this case hueRotate (cross browser but no IE)

They can be modified to animate other Filters as well like in Carl's example of the stdDeviation  using the attrPlugin.
