Animate individual elements separately (custom animation transitions / microinteractions)
Support for simple animation.
Example: Show/hide a slide or push menu
This would enhance a demo and engage prospects that are familar with common application patterns.
Reopening the feature request, based on feedback.

Hi, I would love to be able to animate elements without the need of using artboards with auto animate, which in some cases is very limiting and cumbersome. Sort of like on Apple Keynote, elements can be animated individually (build in, build out). You could solve a lot of problems with this type of animations.

Definitely not an option.
yeah this is a really critical feature and something that needs to be implemented yesterday!
Feature-Under-Review... Really? I can't believe this feature wasn't added a year ago and only now are they reviewing it. Adobe, start listening to what we want, not what you want!
I am legit DYING for this feature. I'd love to be able to create animated components and add them to artboards. Also - what happened to the 'time' trigger?
Feature would greatly help in creating prototypes without the need to duplicate tireless boards.

Areally need this feature 🙏🥺
Any idea when it's gonna be available?
This feature would be fantastic; I like how animations are implemented as behaviors in Flinto, that could be a good starting point. Currently I do my design in XD but then in order to create more realistic prototypes to show to the clients, I need to redo everything in Flinto as XD animation options are very limited. Finishing the entire project in XD would make much more efficient and pleasurable workflow.

This would solve a lot of motion design problems with XD
That would be awesome!
I don't mind creating simple animations using multiple artboards, if they could be used as (transparent) layers on the main artboard. Maybe as an animated symbol/group?
Please, please make this happen!

This will help getting rid excessive artboards just for micro-animations (preloader, menu/back/close icon, etc).
Please consider adding basic control to movement path/direction like when spinning a preloader graphic.

I am so happy to see this feature as under review. I would love to have this soon!!
THIS IS A MUST!!!!!!!!
This is really important.
Right now every little animation requires a new artbord = a lot of almost identical artbords.

An animated component.
This feature is a must! Default animations are not good enough, we need custom!
Invision Studio has a great animation feature we could borrow features off. Much more powerful then XD.
Micro interactions would really be cool they are seen everywhere in state of the art UIs. Today we are obliged to export XD proto to HTML CSS JS and the code these interactions manually... lots of time loss and we have to do it every time our prototype evolves... headache !

So many prototyping programs can't support animated gifs. If developers think that small animations aren't something that our clients expect to see (they do) and don't want to spend the time to offer those features for real, just supporting gifs would shut up a lot of our clamoring.

Any updates on this? Figma is one of the few tools that has this feature.
