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.
Because of lack of enough canvas size, this should be implemented to limit artboard amount (because one animation needs several duplicated artboards …)
I just added a similar idea suggesting auto-animate between component states that would mimic CSS transitions so there could be unlimited transitions
I think one way to do this, using the component states, would be add a toggle on the pieces within the component to include that piece in the trigger area. If I could create a large component in various states, but only have a small trigger area, that would allow a lot more flexibility. Maybe even have several choices like, “no trigger” “trigger only in this state” (so a slide out menu could stay out), “always trigger”. And get nesting hover states to work.
OMG The struggle to replicate this with "component states layers" to recreate this. We need a simple way to create animations with interactions like collapse or Lightbox concepts. Theres a few jQuery Ui interactions that are complicated to do on XD. I got to agreed with @Matt Keynote do this, and is a concept on (Flash / Animator) or even (After Effects) to recreate this for prototype propose. We need to use components or a lot of canvas to make this idea work and is not perfect either, is just a work around. Would be nice to use the same Idea of components "hover state" functionality in a similar way for animations. Using the keyframes idea is acceptable since we already use this Ui on After Effects and Animator, so most of us already know this. But of course, if you can figure out a way to integrate it the best way you see fit, not necessary the keyframe concept but I wouldn't mind if that's the only way to make int work. Hey even Photoshop have FRAMES since forever to create animations. Please consider this. I can't either create the animation outside on other App like Animator and export it and import it to XD but the animations formats available are not support it. Example, Gif, Video, swf or any other. We want to stay in the Adobe Creative Cloud environment and avoid using Sketch to get this done or hell, go back to Keynote or Quartz, gosh! Well, thnx for all the Improvements so far we achieve since was a BETA. Im a happy user, but animations and transitions on independent elements nowadays is a must tool or functionality to actually create what thiss app was made for, User Experience. Thnx to everyone that voted for it. I hope doesn't take too long. We struggle to do workarounds. Nice day. Here I add a simple concept about what I'm talking about. One more thing, I love XD :-) thanks to create this great tool, make Creative Cloud worth paying for.

This would be great, sad to say but true - I think KEYNOTE is a great example on how to chain animations together as well...
In prototype mode, elements should have individual animation properties if the user so desires. Offsetting animation times to create more realistic cascade effects would be super useful.
Currently there exists no option to use custom animations as part of a static artboard without exporting it to XD, and since XD doesn't allow exporting artboard animations to gif format creating custom animated icons is pointless. I want to show how a loading screen would look as part of a kiosk UI but the "loading" animation I created can't be added to the kiosk screen without the animation getting broken.
perhaps nested artboards?
This is URGENTLY needed. Xd goes towards matching CSS properties. Yet Xd still lacks this capability to separate elements while being able to edit/animate them on their own. Sort of how a pre-comp works on AfterEffects or even maybe just like a CSS isolated class. Please, let's have this! ...Best! =)
Why is this only 'UNDER-REVIEW'??? We need to START this, please, even if it's a complex task for you guys! Please!!
After using the latest iterations of XD I've realized how critical this is. Just yesterday I was trying to figure out how to show a single completed desktop sized homepage for a client and how the slider would work, interior custom hover elements, news slider, etc. I can't do it without having separate elements that I can animate separately.
It would be nice to develop animations separate with their own timelines and then bring those in as components and be able to call or talk to them through the primary screens.

Like Cris said, a timer trigger for component states would be great!
With the latest update, if we could have the Time option under Trigger (Prototype mode), would definitely help create simple animations without the need of a user interaction.
I would love to have separate delays on each auto-animated element. Like this I could drop lots of duplicated artboards. This is a perfect example of what I mean ->
Ideally I would have only 2 artboards -> auto animate on... plus different artboard sections / groups / elements would have different animation delay ... That would be awesome and a big help! :)
As a user, I would like to make a option to create a individual animation from a component, or an option for example right click and have a option like "animate group" and have a identical view as prototype mode. Also another idea is to be able to save animated components, so I could used on my future projects. this would save time on my prototypes.
This would be great to have! Flinto has it too! please Adobe add it! this super usefull, and it saves a lot of time.
Feature-Under-Review and NOT started ?????? Really? LOL Brutal

i think the duration should be flexible to be at the same speed of a gif animation.
To have a smooth animation like gif images, you need to be near the 0.0xs . XD can’t do that yet. it’s limit is 0s-0.xs
Sounds for clicks/errors/transitions would be extremely helpful.

In Principle it's called "Component", in Flinto it's called "Behavior".
Adobe XD should've had it by now if they are serious about competing with other established applications.
