Hello all,


First of all, thank you for this awesome library, he help me a lot on my projects. Really big thanks.

Today i can find a way to do a little improvement for my current project, i need to make a bunch of element "floating" like a weightlessness space object.

Here a pen with my current animation, i need to stagger them to create a random movement for each element (don't do the animation synchronously).


So in a wonderful world, if we have a way to make more "floating" (not like my pen example in single path, with more axis movement and a random start for each element) would be super perfect.

Hope i was clear,


Thanks a lot

Hello _jeremy, and welcome to the GreenSock Forum!


Have you looked at the GSAP ModifiersPlugin or even using the cycle special property that works with stagger tweens.


cycle special property for stagger tweens:





ModifiersPlugin (function based values):

There are a bunch of ways to do something like this. Remember, 1.19.0 adds function-based values too, so you can feed a bunch of elements into a tween and use a function to make each one go to a different x/y position. Or just do a loop like this:



Play with the numbers in the variables to get the effect you're after. 


I'm working on another fun tool that could help too - CustomWiggle which leverages CustomEase (available to club members for now, but will be more widely released in a few weeks):



(To understand CustomWiggle a bit better, see this demo: http://codepen.io/GreenSock/pen/LRqkOr?editors=0010)


If you'd like an advanced copy, let me know and I'll get it to you. But you shouldn't really NEED it for this. :)
