I have created an Animate project where I have used  TimelineMax and a few Animate timelines/tween. (the reason for Animate timeline is that I need to utilise mask).

From my TimelineMax I would like to call the Animate timelines/tween to start these, rather than have them all fired at once in the beginning.

As you will see in the attache code, the yellowBar2_mc is the movieclip that need to be called to start later in the timeline.



var tlheadline = new TimelineMax({});
tlheadline.to(this.inspire1_mc, .8, {delay:.1,alpha:1, ease:Sine.easeOut})
tlheadline.to(this.inspire1_mc, 4.5, {delay:-.9,x:"+=100",ease:Power2.easeOut})
tlheadline.to(this.yellowBar1_mc, 4.5, {delay:-4.5,x:"+=100", ease:Power2.easeOut})

tlheadline.to(this.inspire1_mc, .4, {delay:-2.3,alpha:0,ease:Sine.easeOut})
tlheadline.to(this.yellowBar1_mc, .4, {delay:-2.3,alpha:0,ease:Sine.easeOut})


tlheadline.to(this.engage_mc, .8, {delay:.1,alpha:1, ease:Sine.easeOut})
tlheadline.to(this.engage_mc, 4.5, {delay:-.9,x:"+=100",ease:Power2.easeOut})
tlheadline.to(this.yellowBar2_mc, 4.5, {delay:-4.5,x:"+=100", ease:Power2.easeOut})

tlheadline.to(this.engage_mc, .4, {delay:-2.3,alpha:0,ease:Sine.easeOut})
tlheadline.to(this.yellowBar2_mc, .4, {delay:-2.3,alpha:0,ease:Sine.easeOut})



Hopefully this is a simple solution.


Thanks in advance.

You may try put an as3 function that works after 2,3 sec:




function timedFunction() { function here }


Then you may try putting a label inside the movieclip yellowBar2_mc on the first frame of your movie clip called "fr1":




function timedFunction() { yellowBar2_mc.gotoAndPlay("fr1"); }




You can start the movieclip animation with:

What alempo said, or you can still use your GSAP timeline to keep it modular but just use an onStart call with an anonymous function, something like this >


tlheadline.to(this.yellowBar2_mc, 4.5, {delay:-4.5,x:"+=100", ease:Power2.easeOut,
       function() {
