What is Lottie?

Talking in technical terms, a Lottie is a JSON-based animation file format that makes shipping animations possible for designers on all platforms as quickly as other assets. These are small files compared to other forms that work on all devices.

Let's break it down into an easy form of visualized representation. If a PNG is a T-Rex dinosaur, and a GIF is an elephant, then a Lottie is a small adorable puppy. Open source or even free Lottie player for web, iOS, Android, Windows, and many other platforms. The size of a Lottie Animation helps increase the download speed and reduces the amount of disk space utilized. They are small files that have excellent resolution without the animation getting stretched.

A Lottie animation can allow you to play your animation on the web or mobile devices while still maintaining high quality. It can also enable smart settings that will allow your animation to be interactive.
