Site Animation causing page flashing when loading

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://steinouercreative.com/extras

Hoping someone can help.  When I try turning on a site wide animation in design, it causes the page to seemingly load twice very fast.  I tried removing all the custom code I had and the problem still persists (I have left the code off for the moment but tried adding it back piece by piece and the issue never occurred again until I turned on animations in the Site Style design).  I did a screen recording showing it happen which can be viewed here.  https://www.dropbox.com/s/zco1q8r3mvgwkt4/ScreenCapture.m4v?dl=0

Any insight on the cause and solution would be greatly appreciated.

I was having this issue on page load/page switch. The pages displayed in full for a ms before doing the fade-in site wide animation.

This is what I used to fix it (add to custom css section in settings)

body:not([data-animation-state="booted"]) > * {
  opacity: 0;

This waits for the 'data-animation-state' attribute to be added to body before showing any elements, essentially skipping the full display that happens before the animations are queued
