Create Lottie animations for apps and the web in After Effects

Lottie is a file format used in apps and on web pages to show high quality, light-weight, adjustable and scalable animations. Change static buttons and icons into engaging animated versions.

During this two-day training you’ll learn the whole workflow from importing vector graphics to exporting and testing your finished Lottie animations. You also get to work independently, building your own animations with help from Jarle when needed.

Learn the workflow, the smart little tricks and techniques, and all the necessary settings.
