Is it possible to create this effect but instead of the particle squares, use a series of png images on transparent backgrounds? 

Of course! You can simply change the part about document.createElement('div'); to document.createElement('img'); and then set the src for that element.


But it wouldn't be very performant to be moving around that many images. It would be best to use the <canvas> element to animate that many images because it performs a lot better for this sort of thing. Our own @OSUblake has a lot of GSAP + canvas experiments, especially with an additional library called Pixi.js. You might combine the demos that in the post below with the one that you linked to.

Thanks alot Zach - also I was checking out Three.js as an option too - though I think this is all over kill for what I need to accomplish - just the same same I appreciate the response - I've been working alot in After Effects and my coding is a tad rusty! 


Your solution makes perfect sense, thanks.

Welcome to the forums, @devstar625. Did you have a GSAP-specific question? We'd love to help with those but we're not in a position to offer general "how do I build a whole effect" kind of tutorials. There is already a CodePen demo at the top of this thread with code that works, so hopefully that's a good jumping off point for you. 


If you still need help, please be specific and if possible, provide a minimal demo (like a CodePen).
