Hey friends, I need your help!

 

I made an animation in AE and now have issues as I need to export it for web use:

  1. The animation has gradient transparency, so I can't do .gif format, since it completely loses the smooth gradient transparency with .gif format;
  2.  I used Saber effect for the animation, so I failed again when I was trying to do .Json file, as it doesn't support the Saber effect.

 

.mov format won't be an option neither as the file size is huge! What format should I do?

 

Thank you very much!

 

The animation is something similar to these:Screen Shot 2022-10-06 at 9.48.15 AM.pngScreen Shot 2022-10-06 at 9.49.25 AM.png

The brutally honest answer: You can't have everything. In such a case it's best to not use any transparency at all and bake the background into the image and optimize the heck out of an animated GIF or an MP4 video. Otherwise you have to live with the limitations. There is really no way to accommodate and reconcile your requirements.

There are no standard media players for web pages that support transparency. Adobe Animate can generate similar-looking effects for the web using code. You're trying to force video to do what video for the web cannot do. You need to use different tools or live with the limitations of the 256 available colors in the GIF format.
