Import Videos & Animated GIFs to show in interactive preview
Support to import a video or animated GIFs to simulate animations or even playable video.
Hello everyone! I’m excited to announce that in XD 45 (released today 10/26), you will be able to import MP4 video into your XD designs.
To ensure platform compatibility and performance across desktop, web and mobile preview, your video must be:
under 15 MB
4K or under resolution.
Enjoy and we can’t wait to see what you create!
XD does not support Animated GIF, so if you are still looking for that, please start a separate request and vote on it.
Honestly, how hard is it really to add animated gifs to Adobe XD? It's been YEARS that this software has been out and in development and still no possible way of showing something as simple as a loading icon gif. Just goes to show that Adobe doesn't care about its consumers anymore. It will be interesting to see if this too goes by the wayside like Muse after a few years of not updating/fixing the program or taking customer feedback to heart.

This is the missing feature that keeps me away from Adobe XD...
Is the government now running Adobe? Adobe PS is literally the go-to source for creating gifs, but over in the next line at the DMV (Adobe XD) they don't know what you're talking about or why they ever encouraged you to make one! I'm losing my mind and frankly the rest of you are being way too nice about this. Adobe XD is the only prototyping resource that offers easy voice rec. and playback, which I need to demonstrate my app's accessibility. 7 YEARS and 11k upvotes!!!! WTF!
Please add this feature, this is so important for creating prototypes. I am honestly so amazed how this is still not available.
Since we use Xd and this feature not support our work
always client ask for animated splash screen, and tell now we wait to update this on Xd.
its very important.

Hello, please add this feature. I want to show gifs and video previews to my clients. I primarily use Adobe XD for rapid prototyping, and Photoshop for editing.

That feature would save a lot of my time and effort, of others too. I eagerly look forward for this feature! Thank you for considering our requests : )
Please add this Feature

2 years and still no GIF support? shame on you.. please get it done.
It's been 2 years. Make it happen.
hey what are you doin ?
It is really annoying.
In the meanwhile you may checkout 2 of my workarounds. I attached a spinner as XD-file.
It might help in some cases but unfortunately workarounds are blocking other actions on artboard like autoanimations or keyevents
Feature started on march 25 2019? 2 years ago and still not finished? seriously?
any updates on this feature request?
please add! we can't present work without the ability to preview animations. :)

The world operates in gifs now. We’ve already made the move from inanimate emojis.
Clients expect this in their designs to have the immersive experience instead of me changing my voice to add to the experience.
Can't believe it can't play animated GIFs! I think somewhere out on the internet there is probably a free code library for playing GIF animations.... :-)
