What is LottieFiles Plugin for Adobe AE?
The LottieFiles plugin converts your After Effects animation into a Lottie format file (JSON and .lottie) for use on the web and mobile. The plugin provides a smooth workflow for rapidly iterating on animations and testing feature support across different platforms.
The LottieFiles plugin also integrates tightly with LottieFiles, letting you upload, test, and publish animations to share with the world as well as searching for Lottie animations and downloading their After Effects project files.
Check out the quick plugin walkthrough video below or go to LottieFiles plugin for AE page here for more details.
The previews tab in the plugin allows you to view animations you’ve uploaded previously (both on LottieFiles on the web and via the plugin).
Using the explore tab, you can browse and search through all the Lottie animations on LottieFiles right from within the plugin itself.
After selecting an animation, you can download the Lottie file as well as its Adobe After Effects project (AEP) file.
Downloading the animation’s AEP file gives you the ability to redesign the animation and change the layers you want.
