I have this website I’m about to publish, for my own graphic design work. I thought I’d like to animate my logo, so I had a try at it using the very old adobe Animate Edge which I’ve had sitting around forever.
Now I find that I probably can’t incorporate that into my site, so I’ve been trying to get my head around the options.
There have been some 3rd party options mentioned, like Hype. according to their website I could use that in Webflow if I go for a CMS plan, which I wasn’t planning to do.
There’s the animation from within Webflow, but I think that would be a pretty bad option for what I want to do (I might be wrong though)
There’s this Lottie thing, but to use that I think I need After Effects to make the initial animation. I don’t have access to that. I don’t have a full grasp of all these interdependent technologies.
I know no coding stuff, I tend to be a bit baffled at the discussions around animation as they often reference things I don’t understand, but I can use a timeline animation tool, and I can use Webflow to a degree.
If someone can help me understand what I need to use to make the animation, and how to incorporate it into Webflow, preferably at free or low cost, without After Effects, and preferably without needing a CMS plan, I’d be eternally grateful!
Here’s a link to a youtube vid showing my animated logo, playing in a browser. (the only way I could think of to display it!)
and here’s the link to my website with the static svg logo.
