    The tutorial had good examples of how to get started with great explanations to follow each. Thank you for the intro to ScrollMagic.

    Wow, this was great. I’ve wanted to make parallax backgrounds for years but couldn’t figure out how; I just learned it in an afternoon. I can’t wait to start the full ScrollMagic workshop and the GreenSock workshop as well.

    Petr, thank you so much for doing what you love and for being so good at explaining how you do it. You helped me a lot.

    This is another example of your kindness to teach and share knowledge.

    Simply, Thanks!

    Petr has really taken the time to edit the videos well, indicating sections on the page he’s talking about so it’s very straight forward to follow through and understand. I like the pace of the video too, not too quick so you miss things but not too slow to annoy users (you can always pause and rewind the video). I can’t wait to complete the full course! 🙂

  7. Jaap Swart

    Loud and clear, the first video, Petr.

    One question: you already used a cdn, so why did you add this line in the html:
    window.jQuery || document.write(”)

    Thanks, Jaap

  8. Tristan Timblin

    Just finished the course.
    Videos were really well done, you learn a lot in a short amount of time. Going to take it again this time following my own design to get the points better.

    Recommended. Thank you.

  10. Peter Barr

    Great explanation, thanks very much Petr! Really helped with a project I was working on:

    Cheers, Pete.

    This course is really great.

    If you’re a fellow beginner, this is probably the best way to get introduced to scroll effects with scroll magic.

  12. Gijs de Lange

    Not only very much to the point, but also very complete. This (short) 101 gave me a good insight of how to use Scroll Magic. I will also give the 101 on GreenSock a try and I’m thinking about signing up for the rest of the courses. This is excellent, thanks a lot!
