Hi everyone, I'm new here so thanks in advance for any communal help I receive.  :-P


I have a canvas element I'm rotating onMouseMove. Here's the example:




My problem is that 'shortRotation' is not working. Right now I'm using simply 'rotation' because it's working and illustrates the problem area I'm having. If you click the mouse down and drag over the horizontal middle of the circle on the right hemisphere, you'll see the wheel jump 360 degrees to come back to where your mouse is. That's where I need 'shortRotation' but it's not working.


Anybody know why?


Thanks in advance,

The problem was that there was no ShortRotationPlugin available - the shortRotation functionality that was in GSAP was only inside CSSPlugin (thus only worked for DOM elements). You were tweening a generic object that's not a DOM element, so it wasn't kicking in. However, I've attached a new ShortRotationPlugin that you can load and then it should work just fine. Let us know if it works okay for you.
