Hi guys.


I'm a newbie to the forums and would like some help with changing (or disabling) animations to static images whilst in responsive mode. I am currently in the process of finding a web host for my work so examples will be quite bleak, but should be up shortly.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Basically, when an animation is active in desktop mode I'd like it to change into a static image when it changes to responsive mode. 


Or alternatively...


If you can resize the animation to fit inside a mobile browser (without changing to a static image).

So you basically want to use animations but site should remain responsive right?


Following are couple of threads that show you how you can keep website responsive. You will find many other examples and different approaches but it always depends on how your animations are.

Not to entirely remain responsive, but to remain to the values within. I recently came across this post as a possibility:


Also, Sarah Drasner's example of responsive animation:


See the Pen waXKPw by sdras (@sdras) on CodePen

My apologies if I can't quite explain it properly, but I what I am aiming for is to shrink the logo that I created with GSAP whilst in responsive mode, to fit to mobile browsers.

If you remove all her JavaScript, you can see that her design is responsive anyway. Most probably you are creating logo using SVG which is vector graphics and is responsive by default. It will be best if you post a simple codepen demo showing your problem and expected behavior.
