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.
Nico Haitas commented
What is desperately needed is something like https://proto.io/en/demos/ they have motion, transition and animation nailed
NEED THIS DESPERATELY!
When guys ?

I need this, please ... how will be implemented?
Will this be implemented?? i need this. This would really help in designing interactive prototype. at least scrolling to elements in the same page so i can demonstrate sticky top/bottom

Two options for Adobe to take to complete XD. UX design and prototype testing need animation features or InVision and Sketch are going to continue to Eat your Lunch.
1. Tight integration with Adobe Animate CC for Microinteractions and transitions
2. Buy 'Principle' app and Merge it with XD.
Animated navigation bars as we scroll down and individual animation option for each element in Xd.Thanks
Ron Zhang commented
Additional animations and transitions between screens are highly appreciated. Using AE is too heavy handed for micro interactions and animation. XD would be the perfect tool for that.
Justin Caruana commented
It should be done
Kamran Shah-Singh commented
The infrastructure of prototype mode has been engineered in a way which allows itself almost impossible to integrate any animate/pulsing or even hover effects unless Adobe have the time and capacity to to re engineer prototype mode.
Users of Adobe XD need to understand that XD is primarily an App and not Web design tool built with similar traits to Illustrator.
Fear not - there are and will be more 3rd party integrations that'll allow animations to replicate real-world use for testing sessions.
I like it how adobe stays silent on this feature for 2 years. No comment on it at all. They just wait to loose the game to others after that bake it partially with lots of incompatibilities with backward features & excessive limits.
Need a microinteractions feature or animation feature so that u can add interaction to single layers.
Lack of this functionality make me resort to other tools for prototyping which is a shame. Whenever i try to use XD im left with mixed feelings as i feel that XD is very efficiently set up to craft what you need quickly, but it lacks the features that would make it the tool of choice for most power users.
An awesome way to get this feature would be if u added multi state objects where we can design every state as its own artboard with animations between them.
Adobe folks.. IT would be extremely helpful to us if you were a bit more transparent. Everyone is guessing when this feature will happen and the silence is deafening. The problem it that many teams are trying to lock down a process and once entrenched in another tool, it can be difficult to switch (back to XD). #XDefeated
Yes! XD is literally burrying Photoshop for webdesign tasks and interfaces. Adding the power to animate our designs would be sooooo great... One tool for webdesign... Photoshop is so slow compared to Affinity Designer, Sketch and XD! I don't wanna suffer anymore with any laggy tool....
I think adobe should change the name of Adobe XD: Feature Requests, Top category to Shame list. It's funny & shameful for a corp. like Adobe to have the most requested, most useful requested feature in the backlog for 2 years. & for sure they will implement like overlays. Overlay is a incomplete feature that wasn't ready for release. It has problems with the current app features like transparency & have lots of limitations.
I think the day of releasing of inVision on Windows will be the migration day for lots of these 3873 people on this feature request.
Hope u will get things right.
Just look at this plz: https://www.invisionapp.com/studio
Just copy it or do it better.
This could be a key selling point for your product that you are missing it.
& by compliment it with other features like masking & etc.

Its been so long since this feature has been in the backlog. The overlay feature is really great and I appreciate the time that went into making it so. But micro interactions are an integral part of UX design and I hate to go out of the Adobe ecosystem just to get micro interactions into my designs. Alternatives like Protopie don't work for me since I'm primarily a Windows user and switching over to mac and and another software just for implementing micro interactions in my designs is a pain in the butt. Please give us the opportunity to define our own custom micro interactions in the Adobe ecosystem. Kudos to a job well done until now!

InVision features look so good... My wish is that XD blows them away real soon.
Hey guys I don't even know if the admins are active on this thread. They recently released an overlay feature in the june update which is pretty neat and I think will do until they fully complete this feature. You can check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4cpz2OIHYvw
SAVE ME FROM USING ANOTHER PRODUCT / SAVE ME TIME IN GENERAL PLEASE: When user testing, I end up having to use a different product like InVision or actually coding up a mock-up myself just to show a hover transition on a button, icon or displaying a tool-tip.
Can't wait to see more updates. Really like the overlay feature in this most recent release. Keep up the great work. Hope to see hover transitions in the next release!
