Design Barn Inc, the creator of the animation file format, dotLottie and the animation workflow platform LottieFiles, is one of the largest most active communities of motion designers, animators and engineers around Lottie. The company aims to streamline the animation workflow, create a new realm of possibilities with Lottie animations across media, marketing, platforms, gaming & for its users from over 80+ countries.
The LottieFiles plugin converts After Effects animations into a Lottie format file for use on the web and mobile. The plugin provides a smooth workflow for rapidly iterating 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 Lottie animations and downloading its After Effects project files.
Lottie is a lightweight animated graphics format which on an average is over 600% smaller than a GIF (even when played at 60 fps). It is JSON-based animation file format that uses a textual, descriptive representation of the animation elements and movement towards a smaller file size and platform-independence, resolution independence and variable frame-rate during animation playback.
While LottieFiles gives animators and developers a place to share, showcase their animations and instantly test them across devices without writing a single line of code.
