Ok plaYEAH!, you just conquered the basics of your first PowerPop flow. Now let me show you how to use a massive free library of open source animations at your disposal - we are talking by the thousands my friend 😲
In the previous quick wins, you may have noticed a setting we called Lottie JSON url (or maybe you were too excited by the awesome super powers 🦸♂ plaYEAH! is going to give you). Lottie is an open source animation file format that’s tiny, high quality, interactive and the perfect solution to use inside your course to jazz things up a bit to make it a lot more interesting and engaging (unless you are in the .02% that think dull boring lifeless grey is exciting) . This is the new industry standard that is available on the web, on your phone and on your toaster 🍞 (if you have a "smart toaster" that is). The top 500 apps on the App store now use Lottie to engage users and enhance conversions.
We when across Lottie - we were like:
What we have included in the Favorites Animations page is just a teeny-incy-weeny-tiny sample if what is available that we spent years curating....just kidding it was only a few hours...but a few hours you did not have to
waste spend...and still has over 100 animations in it...but.... anywhoo
This massive library contains both free and really really cheap (less than you would pay for a fresh brewed cup of☕) animations. In fact, they even have a page where you can hire animators (aka "Lottie Experts" - if you really want to go crazy and have a custom animation built for you (or for a client that is willing to pay you to pay some to creating something for them - 🤪 )
Now, with any "free market" there is always a chance that you will see 💩 on there. But because you are a plaYEAH!, we got you covered and will give you some pro tips for navigating Lottiefiles. Here are some awesome ways to find stuff:
🔎 Keyword search is always a good idea
🔎 Search by specific color
🔎 Turn on the "free filter"
🔎 Consider purchasing a "pack" of similar animations
Are you feeling like:
Now that you have your free LottieFiles account and are logged in☝, just head over to that search bar that is in the upper right corner and search, filter until you find the perfect one
Now that you found the perfect animation ( ⏲ don't spend hours plaYEAH! - just pick one already 😟 - the site is not going anywhere - it will still be accessible later, tomorrow, next week, next month - you get my point plaYEAH?) Click on the the one you like. A popup will appear showing you the animation in a larger preview window.
Then click the clipboard icon in the Lottie Animation Url field on the right hand side right under the player. 👇
Now that you have the Lottie Animation Url - you are going to head back into the My plaYEAH Pops page inside of Site Builder that we created in the previous step. We are going to replace the animation we used in the confetti blast Pop
Locate the Pop in the block section on the left and click on it. (If you followed the Quick Win, it should be the fourth one). Scroll down to the Lottie JSON URL settings and select the entire thing and then paste your new one in there
