Hello all,


I have a slight problem and any help would be greatly appreciated, I am an animator new to the world of code and greensock.


I'm looking to build something similar to the visions section on this waaark site: http://waaark.com/vision/


As you can see from the code pen I have built the outer circle forming and have built a timeline with a slider to controll the progess of the outer circle. I have managed to link each point so that when it is clicked the timeline go to the corrrect progress.




ideally I would Like this to tween to the correct progress and not jump as it is currently downing. I've tried a tweenTo() put cant seem to get this to function.


The box2Timeline also should not animate the full way through as it currently does but function like waaark


once this is fixed I'm going to also add a scroll function and then a inner icon to animate on when the corresponding point is clicked.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Kind regards,



See the Pen rWLNLN by Ryan84 (@Ryan84) on CodePen

Is this more like what you want?:



Keep in mind that tweenTo() accepts either a number (in seconds, as the time you want to tween the playhead to), or a string (label where the playhead should animate to). It looks like you were trying to feed in a progress value (which is always between 0 and 1). So I just multiplied that value you had by the duration to get the correct number. 


I also used tweenTo() to initially just make the timeline animate to that first dot. Is that what you wanted?
