Gradients in After Effects/Lottiefiles

Hi!

I’m very new to the Lottiefiles format. I’m using a workflow of Adobe Illustrator → After Effects, where I’ll right click the Illustrator layers and choose “create shapes from vector layer”. Now, I’m currently trying to create Lottie-animations with gradients in them, but these gradients will just go gray whenever i create shapes out of them. I’ve looked around the web for fixes, but the best I’ve seen, would be to recreate the gradients in AE, which would take a lot of work. Is there another way to fix this?

Thanks in advance!

That’s the best solution that I’ve found. The gradients just don’t translate to shape layers like that. You can toggle down to the individual shape within that artwork layer and see the fills and adjust what you can there.
