    I have been using Bodymovin/Lottie with Sketch2Ae and found it pretty convenient. Most of the times it copied everything over to AE without any issues. I have found that Bodymovin/Lottie animations get pretty big in file size however.

      I'm confused-- the JSON exports from Bodymovin' are many magnitudes smaller than they would be as image series animations. Are you referring to the size of the AE files?

      How big are the file sizes? Do you have any sample animations and how big of a difference in file size they were when going from gif to lottie?

        Off the top of my head most UI animations are in the 100k range. I don't bother checking because they're so small. A gif at a frame rate you'd find acceptable for production work would be... well... the size of the img x 24 fps (at min) x duration. And even still, it won't look as good as a Lottie animation.

          Interesting, I'm looking to explore something like this soon. Let me know if you have any files laying around I'd love to add them to a site to do a comparison
