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.

Please support video for mobile app designs/prototyping.
Background Video a must for designing Websites!!! And please add a loop functionality.
You guys are awesome!
Add the functionality to also show hide.. !!!
This is a must!
Every one use icons for better understanding and communication. For message screen or placeholder prototype some time we required animated-gif icons.

I agree with everyone. If we can import a playable .gif, we can simulate interactions and reduce the requirements of the app to have multiple levels of interaction types.
I was able to import the GIF file but it won't play, it's displayed just as an image, it would be great if we could have that feature.
Please can we import videos into the prototype and also be able to use them and background videos that loop
Video is key in 2016 when selling an interface. Interactions too.
To present with or without it is a keyfactor to switch to XD.
I would like to ...
(beneath: Great work and thanks to the XD-Team !!!)
YES! Please... :)
I use a LR plugin to organize my photo gallery website. I want to use an occasional animated GIF there, but can't since LR cannot import it. :(
It could be like video, where it can be imported and viewed, but not edited.
Allowing me to show animations would at least temporarily make up for the fact that you can't add scrolling to a prototype. One or the other would be really useful, but preferably both.
Or else showcasing the prototype will always have to come with an added promise/explanation/apology... And to me, that is a prototype that is simply not good enough to showcase.
* Import from Edge Animate - https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/13474365-import-from-adobe-edge-animate
* Import animated SVG - https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007/suggestions/13438794-import-animated-svg-icons
It would be sweet if you could use animated vectors from AI > EA > XD, in other words creating a vectorised logo, animate it in edge animate and then import into XD, this in my opinion could being a whole new user experience to how people interact with apps created in XD in both UI and Furthering A brands experience within the app. (animated logo's)
Interactions are key when selling an interface. Being able to present them with imported animated gifs (play on hover or click, reverse play on hover off maybe?) would be huge, and allow XD to gain an edge over our previous prototyping app.
Yes, support for animated GIFs ASAP please :)
I also miss the video functionality. It definitely create various new and meaningful use of the tool. So I hope this feature will be realeased soon :)
support animated gifs and mov Files
Need video for training
Animated gifs are important for my work, as it's a simple way to clarify an interaction and 'sell' an idea to clients.
