Introducing ScrollMagic 2.0

If you’re desperate to generate beautiful scroll animations in your next project, then look no further. ScrollMagic is a JavaScript library to help you create “magical” scroll interactions which effortlessly react to the user’s current scroll position and trigger animations or synchronized events.

ScrollMagic recently underwent some big changes, so here’s a quick walk-through discussing the changes and improvements since its rebirth.
