after nearly 20 Years of web-design-abstinence these are my first steps back…so here comes my first question.
It seems that an image sequence, integrated in a json-file is ignored by the standard preloader.
Beside that I have the impression that the sequence is still flickering when playing the animation for the first time. This issues only appear when i’m on a mobile 4G or slower connection. I know 8MB is not optimal for web, but its not huge for modern days I guess… (it would be cool if bodymovin won’t recompress already smaller jpeg or png sequences by the way)
So is there a way to take the json-sequence into account while preloading? Or is there something else i’m doing wrong?
Right now I work around this issue by playing the animation for some seconds under the preloading animation… but this doesn’t make any sense if you have a fast connection- you wait for nearly 10 seconds no matter what.
Thanks and all the bests,
