Yep, it’s totally true. CSS animations should only be used for simple stuff.. In my latest theme i have also tried both jQuery and CSS to animate 3D blocks smoothly on all kinds of devices and it was literally impossible. I’ve resorted to javascript and used GSAP. Totally worth it!

Jack makes a lot of good points, and I agree, RAF gives you so much more flexibility than CSS3. But with regards to performance, in my experience, RAF doesn’t always beat CSS3 in visual performance as well as stress tests in every browser. I think the bottom line is, when you need lots of control, something like GreenSock is going to serve you quite well, but when control isn’t much of an issue, CSS3 is often the better choice.
