Export to Lottie

Export to Lottie

Export Lottie–the JSON file format–to easily integrate motion into apps and websites.

What is Lottie?

The Lottie format is a JSON animation file format that can be used to integrate motion graphics into apps, websites, and more. It's vector-based, offering flexibility and versatility without heavy performance issues.

When to use Lottie

Use Lottie when...

  • You want interactive animations in web or mobile experiences.

  • You need an efficient, small file size (Lottie is much smaller than GIFs and PNGs).

  • You want animations to scale to various screen sizes without pixelation.

Learn how to integrate your Lottie animations into Framer and Webflow.

When not to use Lottie

Avoid Lottie when...

  • Your project involves complex effects (Lottie doesn't support most raster-based motion effects).

  • You don't need to embed your final project. Because Lottie is a JSON file, it won't be easily presentable since it can't be opened by most movie file players.

  • Style needs don't fit Lottie; GIFs are an alternative.

Feature Support

Fully Supported 🟢:

  • Shape Geometry + Properties

  • Path Animation

  • Masks (Normal, Inverted, Group, Compound)

  • Images

  • Duplicator Instances (when contents are supported)

  • Fable Control Tools (Parenting, Controllers, Scenes, Groups)

Not Supported 🔴:

  • Blur Effects

  • Stylize Effects

  • Particles

  • Various Blend Modes

  • Some Shape Modes

  • Some Text Features

  • Audio, Effects, Masks (Gradient, Trim Path), Text Animators, etc.

As a general rule of thumb, if the element is something that can be rendered with the Lottie export, all of its keyframes and animation data will be included in the export.
