How to make simultaneous animations?

How do I make both animations run at the same time? Is there a way to do it with timeline, or does timeline do the first one, then move on to the next?

let tl = gsap.timeline();
  tl.to(camera.position, {
        duration: 2,
        ease: "power3.easeInOut",
.to(camera.rotation, {
    duration: 1.5,
    ease: "power3.easeInOut",

It's pretty tough to troubleshoot without a minimal demo - the issue could be caused by CSS, markup, a third party library, your browser, an external script that's totally unrelated to GSAP, etc. Would you please provide a very simple CodePen or CodeSandbox that demonstrates the issue? 


Please don't include your whole project. Just some colored <div> elements and the GSAP code is best (avoid frameworks if possible). See if you can recreate the issue with as few dependancies as possible. If not, incrementally add code bit by bit until it breaks. Usually people solve their own issues during this process! If not, then at least we have a reduced test case which greatly increases your chances of getting a relevant answer.


Here's a starter CodePen that loads all the plugins. Just click "fork" at the bottom right and make your minimal demo

See the Pen aYYOdN by GreenSock (@GreenSock) on CodePen


If you're using something like React/Next/Vue/Nuxt or some other framework, you may find StackBlitz easier to use. We have a series of collections with different templates for you to get started on these different frameworks: React/Next/Vue/Nuxt.


Once we see an isolated demo, we'll do our best to jump in and help with your GSAP-specific questions.

Hi @FrEZ have you seen the position parameter? You can to it multiple ways, personally I like to use the "<" character to have that tween play at the same time as the previous one.


tl.to(".item-1", {y:100})
tl.to(".item-2", {y:100}, "<") // this will make this tween start at the same time as the previous tween.

Hope it helps and happy tweening!
