Have a few questions? No worries.

Is this course up to date?

Module 1 has been added to GreenSock 101 in May 2020 and covers GSAP3 API. Module 2 contains legacy GSAP2 code. Feel free to skip module 2, but you might pick some other GSAP tips there too.

Can I download the videos and watch them offline?

No, video files are not available for downloads. You need to be online and logged in to my site to be able to follow this course.

Do I need GreenSock Club membership?

No, you don’t need the paid GreenSock club membership. We will only cover the free GreenSock tools such as TweenLite, TweenMax, TimelineLite and TimelineMax.

Why should I learn GreenSock instead of CSS animations?

CSS animations are great, but to accomplish more advanced interactive animations like you have seen on so many award winning websites, you need a tool that lets you focus on your creative idea. Learning GreenSock will help you to get things done much faster and without a lot of headaches.

What software do I need to complete the workshop?

All you need is a code editor (I am using Sublime Text). You can download the starting files and follow me step-by-step from start to finish of each project. SVG files are also available for download. You do not need to have Illustrator installed.

I have another question!

This is a course that literally takes you from the basics of animating HTML elements using the popular GreenSock library and logically progresses to more complex examples.

Petr is an outstanding teacher – his videos are clear and easy to follow and the quality is excellent.

If you love animation on the web and you’re looking for a place to start, don’t miss this course.

Strongly recommended.

I’ve been searching how to use greensock and this course has all the answers and really takes your animation skills to the next level. Highly recommended!

A little fast for me and I think it might be easier for me and beginners if the demo files were less sophisticated: they have a lot in them which doesn’t seem to relate to the task at hand – they are more like files you might publish. I am just questioning whether this degree of setup is necessary to teach what you are teaching.
I don’t want to sound negative though, I have got a lot from your tutorials and tips, so thanks very much!

I have been interested in learning GreenSock animation for a little time now. This is a great introductory course to GreenSock animation. It’s very easy to follow along for those who already have a familiarity with jQuery and JavaScript, like myself, or those new to it altogether.

It’s pretty amazing the complex animations GreenSock can handle with just a few lines of code. I look forward to learning GreenSock more in depth and using it as my primary source for web animation, when CSS3 doesn’t do the trick.

I highly recommend this course to those new to web animation or those who are experienced in animation looking to broaden his or her horizons with GreenSock.

I tried GSAP a long ago but I’ve forgotten almost everything. I think this course is definitely good not only for beginners but also for those who needs a quick remind of what GSAP is able to do.a
