How To Use

Please note, this is a powerful tool, and with great power comes great responsibility.
Use wisely. A little subtlety can go a long way.

Superscrollorama is powered by TweenMax and the Greensock Tweening Engine. Go to for documentation on how to use it. Why Greensock/TweenMax? Great performance, ease-of-use, expandibility and basically because it is awesome.

First, link to the jQuery CDN and then embed TweenMax.js and Superscrollorama. Next, start up Superscrollorama. Think of it as a controller for animation. You add tweens and timelines to it, targeting when an element appears in the viewport or at a specific scroll point.

Use the addTween method to build your scroll animations.

.addTween(target, tween, duration, offset)
  • target: scroll position (number) or element (string or object)
  • tween: a Greensock animation tween object
  • duration: scroll duration of tween in pixels (0 means autoplay)
  • offset: adjust the animation start point

In the example below, the animation fades in when scrolled into view.

	$(document).ready(function() {
	  var controller = $.superscrollorama();
	    TweenMax.from($('#fade'), .5, {css:{opacity:0}}));

The default duration is 0, which means the tween plays through completely when its scroll point is reached. You can add a duration which will instead sync the tween progress to the scrollbar position. Instead of one tween, you can create a timeline of multiple tweens.

	// parallax example
	  (new TimelineLite())
	      TweenMax.fromTo($('#parallax-it-left'), 1, 
	        {css:{top: 200}, immediateRender:true}, 
	        {css:{top: -600}}),
	      TweenMax.fromTo($('#parallax-it-right'), 1, 
	        {css:{top: 500}, immediateRender:true}, 
	        {css:{top: -1250}})
	  1000 // scroll duration of tween

★ ★ ★

The 4th parameter is offset, which you can use to adjust the scroll point at which the animation is triggered.

    0, // scroll duration of tween (0 means autoplay)
    200); // offset the start of the tween by 200 pixels

★ ★ ★

Pass in a function to the tween for when the animation is complete.

    onComplete: function(){alert('test')}

You can use the pin method to pin an element, do a series of animations and then unpin it.

.pin(el, dur, vars)
  • el: element being pinned(string or object)
  • dur: scroll duration of pin (in pixels)
  • vars: optional properties for the pin method (object):
    • anim: tween animation object that occurs during the pin
    • offset: adjust the pin start point
    • onPin: callback function for start of pin
    • onUnpin: callback function for end of pin

Example:$('#examples-2'), 3000, {
	  anim: (new TimelineLite())
	      TweenMax.fromTo($('#move-it'), .5, 
	        {css:{left: -200, top: 500}, immediateRender:true}, 
	        {css:{top: -400}})
	    .append($('#move-it'), .5, 
	        {css:{left: 200}})
	    .append($('#move-it'), .5, 
	        {css:{top: -200}})
	    .append($('#move-it'), .5, 
	        {css:{left: 0}})
