Hello redmile, and welcome to the GreenSock forum!


You can try and use a staggerTo() tween along with the special cycle property to animate a SVG gradient


See the Pen WraOVy by jonathan (@jonathan) on CodePen


It will stagger through all of the SVG <linearGradient> <stop> elements.


It uses the GSAP cycle property which is only available for stagger tweens

try this redmile:


See the Pen rxRGjg by jonathan (@jonathan) on CodePen


also i used this online SVG cleanup tool to optimize your SVG code (dont forgot to un-toggle Clean ID's)




read this GreenSock article on using the cycle property with stagger tweens:




keep in mind that the gradient <stops> elements you have are all the same color, if you change their starting values it will animate the color better.
