Please guys fix the editor! It really sucks!

Hello everyone,

I am a big fan of LottieFiles. I use your animations as many times as I can with Webflow and in all my project designs.

It has been quite difficult during the last period to use the LottieEditor at all.

One big problem are its performance, I’m trying to change the layer colors of a 2mb Lottie animation and the webpage keeps crashing both on Chrome and on Safari.
Even when I try to make small changes with multiple reuploads of the same file I notice that the changes I make are not saved at all even when they are shown correctly in the editor.

In the end I have to use a JSON node editor but it’s a very tedious process and also quite difficult and time processing.

Please guys fix the editor and make it more performant, you guys rock.

Thanks,

Michele

Yeah man the editor sucks ! I’ve purchased few lottie animations from LottieFiles for my Webflow project, I wanted to change the color of a few components in the animation to suite my website’s branding. Now the editor keeps crashing both on Chrome and Safari, and it’s IMPOSSIBLE to edit these animations now ! What a waste of my money :frowning:

Hi zhkbryuywqpmsexxil, some animations may not be supported on the editor and we are working on improving the experience. Do let us know which specific animation you have the issue wtih.

For marketplace animations, we do provide the After Effects source file for any further modifications.

Yes, please! Such a great idea but no follow-through. Everytime I start editing the colors, it freezes halfway through if there are lots of colors. So disappointing because I can’t match the lottie to my brand unless I buy one that doesn’t have many layers so less complex.
