Lottie import#345

I can’t import JSON files to Rive 2. Where is Rive 1? I still need it. My files are gone if u’re not allowing json imports anymore.

Hi Yuta,

You can access Rive 1 (formally Flare) via https://flare.rive.app or via the popout on the Launch action for Rive 2.

Hope this helps!

Will importing Lottie Animations be possible in Rive 2? We have a need to do so as well.

I cannot access the Rive 1 anymore. It says: Tthe new Rive is here! Signups for the old Rive (formerly Flare) are closed.

When can I import JSON files to Rive 2??

Lottie import is possible, as we had support for this in the old Rive. That said, that was intended as a bridge for users that have a lot of After Effects animations that would be painful to recreate from scratch. If you are creating new animations, we think you’ll have a better experience creating them directly in Rive. After Effects isn’t intended for realtime content. Files exported from After Effects are often complex (for realtime playback) and not as optimized as files created directly in Rive.

@Yuta Yudistira, your files should not be gone. You can still access all your old files at https://flare.rive.app. We also have some support for importing your old files in the new Rive, which you can read about here: https://help.rive.app/getting-started/faq-1/importing-rive-1-files

We realize it’s a transitional moment for users of the old system. We had to make some hard decisions when building the new version, like prioritizing different features from the old version. We believe these decisions make the new Rive a better product. We’re still in beta and working towards feature parity. If you bear with us, we think it’ll be worth it.

Is it possible to import Lottie animation file into the Rive 2? If it is, could you tell me how?

Thanks for your answer, Guido. Unfortunately, it isn’t working now. I tried it, but it didnt work and I found this on github https://github.com/airbnb/lottie-web/issues/2649

The owner of bodymovin project says that after the new version of rive, the export button doesnt work.

Hope you build this important feature one day!

Yeah, this would be really nice. Unfortunately the Rive export for Bodymovin doesn’t work. No importing with .json files also makes it difficult. Recreating the animations will take too much time so it is most likely sticking with Lottie until we get some updates on this.

I would also really like to see a lottie to rive converter. We work across teams and some design teams can only give us the lottie files, it’s not up to us to choose the tools we can animate with!

We’re still evaluating this, but it’s not as straightforward as it might seem. There will always be trade offs with something like this and you will not get the full benefits of Rive.

Rive is a fundamental shift that is solving a bigger problem than Lottie. I’ll be posting a blog about this soon and will share it here.

In the meantime, plenty of designers, companies, and agencies have adopted it and rebuilt their graphics with Rive to take advantage of our interactive features and performance. Duolingo did it, I’m sure Google can too. And if you need help, we offer business support plans to help you rebuild your assets. https://rive.app/pricing

Thank you so much for the quick response! I’m not an animator but I’ve loved using Rive and I’m more that happy to be an ambassador for adoption. Is there any chance we could get access to Flare while this is not implemented? Sign ups are closed for version 1 and it would really unblock us :D

Waiting for the blog, it would be so exciting to talk about rive from your POV to other colleges in the design industry
