Troubleshooting Figma : When I converted a Lottie as a GIF, it appears as a static image when added to Figma

This issue appears to be a UI bug on Figma side. The converted Lottie files are indeed added to the design as a GIF format, but Figma has a UI bug that treats it as images.

You can try to play it through the prototype to check the file behaviour as a GIF. Alternatively, you can try the following steps:

1. Copy the asset into a fresh Figma file to verify that it's a GIF there
2. Copy it from there
3. Paste it back to replace original asset

From our testing, doing this for one asset seems to fix the other broken GIFs in the design file.
We have reported this issue to Figma and will closely monitor the update from them.
