I have a problem concerning Lottie animations that are used in Android. The problem that I have can be recreated as follows in After Effects:
- Create a composition containing some shapes and some text. Let’s call this composition A.
- Create a second composition (composition B) and load composition A into this one.
- Now animating composition A as a whole, change the opacity of composition A from 100% to 0% to 100% at some point in the animation.
Now at some point, all of composition A should be invisible, including the text layers because we’ve changed the opacity of the entire composition.
However, when I render this and it is loaded into Android, somehow the text layers remain visible?
As if Android only accepts that the shapes of composition A can go to opacity 0%, but the text layers cannot?
I’ve tried to fix this by “animating” the text as well and also changing the text opacity to 0 separately from the rest of the composition, but this also does not work.
Could somebody please help me, why does Android not accept the opacity change in the text?
