How to animate slider captions if position is fixed?

Hi, I'm using Swiper slider, and I've created fixed position captions for it. I don't want them to move with the slide as usual, so I lifted captions out of the slide. I got it to work, but I'm having trouble animating them. I don't know how to do it. :( For example: if the slide changes then the previous slide titles fade out + slide up, and the next slide titles fade in + slide up. 


Thank you.

It's because i don't know how to animate titles with gsap in this particular situation. I was hoping someone could help me with that.

Well, you'd need to put something in the callback for the transition. I believe that's slideChangeTransitionStart in your example. Only instead of switching out the content you'd do something like (in pseudo-code):

gsap.to(currTitle, {autoAlpha: 0, y: -100});
gsap.from(nextTitle, {autoAlpha: 0, y: 100});

I'm not familiar with Swiper to know what those references should be. You could just build the whole thing with GSAP:


Perhaps the Getting Started article for GSAP can help:
