Animation Object IDs

The reason is that you can then insert alerts, secondary functions etc. in the triggered function — things you may not anticipate when first setting it up.

The name of a GSAP animation cannot contain a dash, but can contain an underscore.

Adobe Illustrator objects can contain a dash but not an underscore (they’re converted to “_x5F_” when exported).

Except that a dash in the name of a clipping path will break any attempt to animate it.

For this reason it is a good rule to use camelCase when naming objects in Illustrator and javascript when working on animation.
