WP Bodymovin


WP Bodymovin lets you use animations created in AfterEffects and exported as JSON files using the Lottie (Bodymovin) plugin.

Uploaded animations are called using a shortcode and can be previewed in the backend. Animations can be set to auto start/stop when entering/exiting the viewport to reduce CPU usage, and can also be lazy-loaded.

My animation doesn’t work

If your animation doesn’t work when loaded in the backend, make sure that it runs properly when previewed locally by using the html file generated by the Bodymovin AE extension (You can generate that by checking “Demo – Exports an html for local preview”). If it does work locally and it still doesn’t work in your WP backend, make sure there aren’t any javascript errors caused by 3rd party assets.

Amazing plugin. Nice and light. Only thing missing is the mouse over event. Will that feature be added?

Hi there! Thank you so much for this plugin! I have been using it for more than 7 months! It is umbelievable! You can integrate it everywhere, even in Revolution Slider in your pages. I only wish that developers can create a Pro version that allows more control on the animations (click, mouseover, rewind, etc). I know a lot of ppl who would gladly pay for such features!
