Why Convert A Video To A Lottie?

If you don't have access to Adobe After Effects and the Bodymovin plugin, it's difficult to create a lottie. This tool offers a way around that.

Is this the best way to do things?

No it's not. If you can create a lottie the normal way, do it. This is more hacky and may not work perfectly (flickering, dropping of frames). That's becasue it's not the "right" way of doing things.
