Hello friends of gsap!

This is my first post here but i suspect i will return since gsap is awsome!  8-) 

I'm trying to make a rotating circle with arrows pointing at each word.


Here is an image that shows what I'm trying to do. http://boxesandarrows.com/files/banda/prototyping-with/iterative_prototyping-small.gif


How can i achieve this? I tried using css border and images but I don't know how to apply it the correct way so the arrows rotate with the boxes as seen in the codepen. I want the arrows to basically point on each box.



Thank you for your time and keep up the good work!

Hi and welcome to the GreenSock forums,


Not exactly sure what you need or how it relates to GSAP's capabilities.

From your question it seems like you need a way to draw the arrows or get them into you animation.

I think your best bet would be to create them as vectors in Illustrator or Sketch and export an SVG.

I did a google image search for circular arrows and came across some artwork that I dropped into that demo:




I just centered the image and rotated it with the other elements. 


If there is something else you need, please try to clarify.

Thank you very much for the help!

That was what i was looking for, sorry if the question did not relate so much to gsap.

I will keep that in mind in the future.


Thank you for your time!
