Lottie Animation – Very Modern Display Method
We are using Lottie Vector Animations on our newer maps that feature route travel paths. Lottie’s enable line art animation and character-based animations. The files appear smooth at any size and at any speed. The file size is possibly the biggest benefit of Lottie … up to 3,000 times smaller than the more common GIF file. Also, there are over 10.8 million colors available as opposed to the GIF 256 color limit.
Lottie’s are named after a German film director and the foremost pioneer of silhouette animation. Her best-known films are The Adventures of Prince Achmed (1926) – the oldest surviving feature-length animated film, preceding Walt Disney’s feature-length Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) by over ten years.
