If you want to add dynamic, high-quality animations to your Elementor WordPress site, a free Lottie Animation Elementor widget by Stratum is what you need to create a wow effect. No need to pay for the widget or code integrations.
The widget enables you to add a preferred Lottie file to your site in clicks and customize its animation parameters and appearance via the Stratum widget’s settings panel.
What is Lottie animation and why should you give it a try?
Generally speaking, Lottie is an open-source animation tool that allows you to use lightweight free or premium animation files on your site (as well as design and use yours).
It’s used for different kinds of animation, in user interfaces, apps, line art, logos, and on regular websites.
Technically speaking, it’s an animation exported as a JSON file from Bodymovin. A huge benefit of Lottie images is that they won’t screw up your SEO and performance because JSON files are much more lightweight than GIFs or even PNG.
Whether you just want to pepper up your site with some animations or it’s something of a strategic product presentation, Lottie animation is a perfect solution.
Lottie files are lightweight, scalable without compromising quality, good-looking no matter a device, and – this is what we’ll elaborate on in this post – can be integrated with your Elementor site without any code.
- A library of pre-made Lottie animations – you need a few minutes to add them to your site!
- Lottie is the future of animation, so you have a great chance to boost your site performance with intelligent animations.
- You can choose to use Lottie files as static or dynamic.
- A money-saving deal: Lottie animation Elementor widgets are usually paid, but you can use it at no cost and without limits with Stratum widgets for Elementor.
Check out a few Lottie animation examples built with Stratum.
