Can someone help me understand what I need to know in order to make my animations (in After Effects) interactive? Do I need to put an expression in my animation?
Thanks a lot
Have you looked at the Lottie Interactivity documentation?
Yes thank you!
Are these expressions you put in After Effects? That’s the only thing I didn’t understand.
First understand you cannot create any interactivity using After Effect. For interactivity, not necessarily but you can consider following two things before exporting animation as lottiefile (.json) format.
Add name to layer using symbol “#” in After Effect for more deep coding for interaction. Example: “#righthand”
click, hover, scroll, in view etc). To access these elements,
element ID must be given. And hence this is the way place you can give names. There is another hard way to give name, but that you don’t want it.
Add markers to animation in After Effect for interactive animation.
→ This helps to play animation from certain or specific part or frames of the animation.
