My first post here, I guess it's a real newbie one... I searched and couldn't find any post with this question, so I hope it's ok. What I try to do is to have a div expand from the bottom up, but I can only get it to expand from top to bottom. How can I reverse this?





.wrapper {
TweenMax.to(".wrapper", 1.2, {height:"430px", ease:Expo.easeOut});

It sounds like you might want to animate a rectangular clipping path.  I had actually been wondering how to do the same thing recently, and found a helpful example in another thread.


I forked & updated it:

Masking/clipping custom shapes across browsers is kind of a nightmare, but clipping rectangles is well supported.  https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms530748(v=vs.85).aspx


Apparently clip rect is deprecated though...(?)



But clip path seems to work too:

Any experts feel free to weigh in or correct me if there's anything wrong with my examples, I'm still new at this too.   :)

Hi @Alviere and welcome to the GSAP Forums!


Thanks for being a GSAP Club member and supporting GSAP!


I saw that you edited your original question. Can we assume that you found a solution for your issue?


Just in case Clip Path is supported by all major browsers and can be animated using GSAP as shown in these demos:
