I would like to be able to get a svg point value as the tween is updating, so I can move another svg in sync:

var curve = {
  d: 'M100,300 C100,100 ' + bendAmount + ',40  ' + bendAmount + ',40'

TweenMax.to("#pole", force, {
  attr: curve,
  repeat: -1,
  yoyo: true,
  ease: RoughEase.ease.config({
    strength: 2,
    points: 20
  onUpdate: topper,

function topper (tween) {
  // how do I get the values of curve ?

I am trying to animate the circle so it attached to the top of the line.

Hello gareth,


Have you tried to console out the tween argument in your topper() function?


The tween argument in your topper() function represents "{self}" which is the timeline of your to() tween.


You can console out that object console.log(tween) and see the timeline object


And console out the value with console.log(tween.vars.attr.d) which outputs: M100,300 C100,100 125,40 125,40


Look in the browser console and inspect the timeline 'tween' object being outputted:


See the Pen BzRQoX?editors=0010 by jonathan (@jonathan) on CodePen

function topper (tween) {
  // need to get value of bendAmount point
  console.log(tween.vars.attr.d); // outputs: M100,300 C100,100 125,40  125,40
  // tween.pause(); // added pause() so you can see the timeline object 'tween' and 'attr' values in the console

Let us know if you need more help and have more questions?

This might help you out for the sway. It's a simplified version of this

Each blade of grass uses two bezier curves to create the tapered look, but you can use one. The th variable in the update function is the angle in radians, which you could use to set your flag.
