• imageBodymovin

    An After Effects extension to export animations for web. Animations are exported as .json files that use the bodymovin.js player that comes along with the plugin. You can render animations in the browser on svg, canvas and html. It supports a subset of After Effects features.

  • Hernan, this is awesome stuff. I've played a bit with your version from GitHub. I think moving to commercial product is a good move. I want to see you well-funded so you can continue to support the product!

    Do you know where I could find some example files were I can see the javascript code for triggering the animations with mouse clicks or rollovers? I know only a little javascript.
  • Hello, just curious, we're getting an 'unable to execute script at line 1 .bm_compsmanager is undefined'. Any clue what might cause this? We used the zxp installer method. We wanted to check this out as it could become useful to us!

    Thanks! 
  • Hi,

    is it possible to use the plexus effect with bodymovin? We want to integrate a data cloud in our website, but it renders only the solid, not the effect.

    Can you write me an email at hernantorrisi[at]gmail.com with your os and AE version?
    I've heard a couple of people running into that issue, but I couldn't reproduce it.

    No, sorry the Plexus effect is not supported.

    Yes, I saw those. Cool stuff! The limitation with the examples at CodePen is that the JSON and SVG code with all the magic isn't accessible/viewable. I'd just like to see a couple of simple examples where onClick scripts have been added...maybe something for hover. I want to learn from example where to insert the code and the exact syntax.
  • hello,   

    I have a question, 

    does this plugin interfere or overwrite the bodymovin plugin, used for IOS , Android or React
    AirBNB introduced this plugin some months ago

    I could use both, but I don't want this one to overwrite the bodymovin for native apps

    or do they exist apart from each other?  

    regards


  • It's the same plugin. Airbnb relies on bodymovin for exporting animations from AE

    I've recently helped someone with this. I don't know much about Wordpress, but I think there is a plugin that allows you to include js files to your site in the header or footer.
    Where are you stuck?

  • Hey there!

    So first off...amazing extension.  Seriously, you guys knocked it out of the park.

    We designed a variety of animations for our client's website, but are having an issue with consistent performance across browsers.  For example, all of our animations that utilize alpha and alpha inverted track mattes perform they desired masking effect in Firefox and Chrome, but do not function in IE.  Is that a result of BodyMovin? Or is this more a fault of the the browser's capabilities to display code?

    Thank you!

    Hi, Edge and IE don't support very well Alpha masks. Can you try using a normal mask instead? Regarding performance, on all browsers, regular masks would would much better.
    Luma masks are also a possibility, but don't perform that well.
  • Hi,

    i make my first step and it's amazing, very simple.

    However, I have a problem. I build a wordpress theme with animations. When i load bodymovin.js, all animations works in the index, but not in the other pages. It looks like a path problem, because it want to access to a new adress. Example, if i want to put an animation in the portfolio page, it add portfolio in the original adress where the animations should be. And if I create the folder portfolio, it doesn't work.

    Do you know where is the problem ?

    Kind regards.

    It's impossible, i work in local host for the construction of the website. I found a solution for know with a absolute path, but it will be cool to have relative path.

    When i put in online, i share you the link.

    Hi, did previous versions work for you? What AE version are you using?
  • I hadn't seen that before. It seems that masked strokes don't work well in firefox. Instead of using a track matte alpha mask, can you use a regular AE mask? I've just tried it on a single layer in your animation and it seems to work fine. Also it's going to be much more performant and compatible with Lottie.

  • It is possible to use bodymovin on wordpress?
    if yes, how?

    I would also love to know if anyone has found a workable way to use the animations on wordpress. I've been totally unable to find a solution. I *did* manage to get it working by using iFrames, but it didn't work properly and I couldnt get it to go where it was meant to be.

    It should be possible as long as you can load .js files in it.
  • Hello!

  • I have tried exporting a simple comp using two layers with one that has an alpha matte. It is properly matted in AE but when I export the layer is not matted in HTML, I just get the original shape. I have tried exporting with both the "hidden": setting on and off but to no avail. Any ideas?

    The plugin is installed correctly with the most up to date version. I can export all animation types sucessfully except those with alpha track mattes/

  • Hi Bodymovin,

    Few questions.

    1. How do I export to canvas? You have in your description "You can render animations in the browser on svg, canvas and html", but there's no mention of it anywhere else, not even on the pluggin in AE.

    2. Same issue with exporting to SVG. How do I do this?

    Thanks,
    Sam

    1_ the export is the same. What you have to do is set the renderer as "canvas" instead of "svg" when loading the animation. Keep in mind that canvas supports less features than svg.
    2_ the json file works both for svg and canvas. It's the renderer that will reproduce it on any of those technologies.
  • When I "Get the Player" it is lottie.js. But in the vid tutorial it says it's Bodymovin.js
    My animation isn't playing, and I've gone over the video a few times.

    Yes, the player has been renamed to lottie, but the process is the same as before using lottie instead of bodymovin.
  • Ehi! Great Tool, I'm testing it and it's incredible! 
    I'm wondering why the resulting animation is shifted 50% top and left (see it here https://snag.gy/HlkzFW.jpg). Despite the anchor point in AFX is set to the center or on the top / left corner, the animation is always rendered with this strange offset.
    thank you in advance for your support,

    does Bodymovin support also 3D shape layers?

    Hi, what do you mean by 3d shape layers? Regular shape layers with 3d applied to them?
  • I'm having an issue where BodyMovin is converting my layers to alpha channels but not including my layers. Is this a common issue or am I just effed in the A? I am also building these from layered AI files.

    Hi, gradient ramp is not supported by the plugin.
    Can you use the gradient fill property from a shape layer instead?
