Just stumbled upon this amazing js animation framework. It’s blazing fast and easy to write which is great, but what blew me away is the following demo’s:
Morphing between SVG paths in smooth animations
Compose Animations as Timelines
Free to use, even commercially
GSAP is absolutely free to use. They do sell licenses for some niche use cases, but most projects should be able to use the free license.
Some of the plugins do require a license, including the MorphSVGPlugin sadly. But at $50 a year it’s not bad at all.
