I use a Linux machine as my daily driver for web development, and I would like to create Lottie animations.
I need to draw my shapes and use timeline / keyframing / tween tools. It can be using a full-fledged tool for the purpose, or by exporting from another graphics program such as Inkscape.
I have done some research on the topic, and found out that most suggested workflows either require an Apple machine or the use of Adobe After Effects.
Buying a Mac is out of the question for that purpose. Investing into paid software is OK, preferably with a perpetual license i.e. the software remains functional even if I do not renew.
Preferably, I would like to be able to achieve the entire workflow on Linux. I also have access to a Windows environment; this can be acceptable as a second solution, though a little inconvenient as it would require me to stop everything else in order to restart my computer, author the files, export, then do the whole thing in reverse.
Services such as LottieFiles do not fit the requirements, for instance, as they only apply preset animations to stationary imported shapes.
Would you have some suggestions of tools or workflows to achieve this?
