IMPORTANT: When using GS with require.js dont override the GS variables like that:

define(['ScrollToPlugin', 'TweenLite', 'TimelineLite'], 
function(ScrollToPlugin, TweenLite, TimelineLite) {
   // your code here


I am doing something weird probably because I cant add Tween to Timeline.

var tw = TweenLite.to(window, 0.7, {scrollTo:{y: 300}, ease:Power3.easeInOut});
var tl = new TimelineLite();
tl.add( tw );

and the same when testing this way:

var tl = new TimelineLite();
tl.add( TweenLite.to(window, 0.7, {scrollTo:{y: 300}, ease:Power3.easeInOut}) );

Both ways I see the error:


Uncaught Cannot add [object Object] into the timeline; it is not a tween, timeline, function, or string.


The output from console.log(tw) begins with:


Object {varsObject_totalDuration0.7_duration0.7_delay:0_timeScale1}

  1. _activefalse
  2. _delay0
  3. _duration0.7
  4. _easeObject
  5. _easePower3
  6. _easeType3
  7. _firstPTObject


It looks like a tween anyway.. What I am doing wrong? 

Same code in jsFiddle is working fine. Pls. help with a hint. 


EDIT: I am loading all .js files with require.js (AMD loader). What is the correct way of loading GS plugins with require.js shim?
