Load & Play Lottie animated files (JSON & .lottie)

Hi there ;)

Was wondering. Wouldn't it be cool if Vuo could load & play Lottie files ? (lottiefiles.com)

Seem to be quite a big way nowadays for light animations as opposed to the old GIF images.
Would allow to use some animations made with Adobe After Effects in Vuo and export into apps, screensavers, vids & plugins (new tools coming out to create them as well).

I guess it would be good to load and play both .json & .lottie file formats (dotlottie.io).

In what kind of renderer would / could we render them in to though ? Layers ? Or will we have to wait for SVG import to be added into Vuo since these are vector based ?

Also hope the license would be compatible with Vuo.

Thanks

Ability to add info for sub-comps that appears in the Node Library when node is selected.

I guess to have info in the Node Library about your node it needs to be a fully compiled Vuo node. Would be good if sub-compositions could have explanatory text and links to example compositions. This would especially benefit the sharing of sub-comps in the Vuo community. Sometimes it's important to list gotcha's and limitations of a sub composition's functionality and the Node Library documentation seems like the obvious place to do it.

This would require that sub-comp contain a text field that could use MarkDown for the node documentation and links.

Package linked images/videos/CSV files for output and relink in exported Vuo composition…

graphic designers have been using "package media & fonts for output" type of commands in DTP software forever.

it would be neat to be able to gather the images I used in a composition to upload to the cloud. it's not hard finding the folder they are in, but they are five out of fifty images in that folder, so I have to be very careful selecting them.

If Vuo could save the composition file and then collect all linked media and anything else that makes sense like CSV files and the update links to be in a folder at same level as the Vuo file that would be very nice. I'm sure it's not a priority!

Component: 

Bypass button for nodes.

A bypass button for the nodes to route the signal directly to the output port. This request came from some students who participated VUO AV Workshop. Sounds like a practical idea. Sometimes this can save time when we are working on complex compositions that require a lot of testing. Instead of unplugging the cables, we can disable the node.

Update for unsupported ISF FX

It would be great if all ISF effects will be working properly inside Vuo. So we can import ISFs from other software like VDMX or find more ISF effects from the internet and use them.

I think we need updates for PASSES, IMPORTED, AUDIO FFT, and IDENTITY.

Thank you very much in advance. Hope this improvement can be done soon.
