Image mask query

Hello all, hope everyone is doing well.


I am trying to create a mask of an image which when animated increases the size and changes the position of the mask.

It works well in Chrome but not in Safari. I'm afraid it does not work in the code pen link above but it does work in Chrome (I hope it helps to illustrate my problem). In Safari, the mask is not behaving as it does in Chrome, with an exaggerated movement.
I have a text box animating at the same time as the animated mask.

The mask first reveals only the woman in the left but then it increases in size and position to include the other two people in the image.

This is part of a longer animation and my client wants to create a number of animations in this manner, with different images and captions.

I have tried adding a height and width to the clipPath holding the mask but not joy. Been playing about with this for a good few hours and have attempted to find a solution on google (as well as in the forum naturally...). But no success.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated as ever.
Thanks all.

Hey Craig, thanks for getting back to me so quickly.

I am still having the same issue, with the mask behaving different in Safari when compared to Chrome (it works perfectly in the latter).
The code looks clean to me but if you can point me towards the parts which can cause an issue, that would be greatly appreciate.

Thanks as ever.
