In order to create a Telegram Sticker, your Lottie animation must be in 512 x 512 pixels and should not be longer than 3 seconds. You will be prompted under the "Telegram Sticker Export (TGS)" section on the Lottie Editor if your animation does not meet these requirements.
Step 1: Open your animation in the Lottie Editor
To get started, open your public or private animation and click "Edit Animation" to open it on the LottieFiles Editor.
You can always follow the usual drag and drop way to upload a new animation to create as a Telegram sticker here - https://lottiefiles.com/preview.
Step 2 (Optional): Edit animation size and duration
Don't worry if the Lottie Editor alerts you that your animation is not in the correct size or duration! You can easily modify these parameters inside the Lottie Editor.
Step 3: Download your animation in .TGS format
Go to the panel on the right of the Lottie Editor and download your animation in .TGS format.
Step 4: Open Telegram and start a conversation with the Sticker Bot
Search for "Stickers" and start a conversation by typing /newanimated. Note that a few commands are going to be needed to get your animated stickers online. Follow the instructions given by the Sticker bot to continue.
Enter a name for your Telegram sticker pack. Then, drag and drop the .TGS file you have downloaded in the previous step.
Select an emoji that corresponds to your animation. If you want to have multiple animations in a pack, repeat the drag-and-drop process.
When you have enough animations in your pack, type /publish and give your pack a name and boom 💥
