Lottie Animation Element

27/08/2020

The Lottie Animation Element is new in Avada 7.0.2, and offers you a way to add Lottie Animations to your content. A Lottie is “a JSON-based animation file format that enables designers to ship animations on any platform as easily as shipping static assets. They are small files that work on any device and can scale up or down without pixelation.” You can find animations at LottieFiles, and use the Element to add them anywhere in your content.

The Element is easy to use and has a range of styling options. Read below for more information, or watch the video for a visual overview..
