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.
At the moment you need different artboards to animate a slider or something else. it would be great to animate the slider (klick on an arrow to have the second picture rolling in from the right) without duplicating and manipulating artboards (because space in XD is not endless https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/16589980-infinite-canvas ;-)

This would definitely be incredibly helpful!
As InVision Studio is going: need to make "states"(like local/inner) artboards inside a component. But they should be able to activate on all possible events - otherwise, it is useless. I was very optimistic when I installed XD, but then I found out that XD lacking quite essential features like flipping components, and this also. Still struggling with path/bezier operations - not intuitive.
Why Adobe did not take and remade good old Fireworks, make something in between. At least editing and tools here were simple and spot on.
YES! Components that have their own timelines, as it were, would be so useful.
IOW, we animate the component elements using different artboards, and then export the result as an animated component in the Assets Panel.
This way, we put the component on an Artboard A and as we go to Artboard B, we see the component's animation independent of how the transition occurs (be it Tap or Time or Overlay).

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.
