Support color transitions in auto-animate
The latest update (OCT,15,2018) got me so excited I thought of giving it a spin after a long time. Great work team!
The feature I wanted to request was the ability to see colors transition from one to the other' smoothly in auto animate'. Right now it just jumps to the next (check attachment).
For now this effect can be achieved in after effects by keyframing the 'Fill' preset.
Figma does this but I don't like Figma. #TeamXD.
Adding colour transitions to shapes, vectors, text, backgrounds would be super cool.
Would be awesome to see this in XD! :)
something like a rainbow animation would be a lot easier
For now, this can only be made by transparency and two objects on the same place (as shown in the animation).
If this feature gets implemented, and it should, that would be perfect if we could go as far as animating gradients based on their colours stops with auto animate.
Agreed. It would be great if the background colors also had a transition from one art board to another as well.

Okay, after using XD intensively for a few weeks, creating a "self running" app demo... I can honestly say using layers is a huge PITA. The color should just transition. PLEASE. This is utterly painful, and so so obviously logical.
Hey Frank, I like how you have done your animation but don't really understand how exactly you made it.
Could you link to that same file so that it can be downloadable ? I think your solution is good and could be helpful for people.
Thanks in advance !
I was able to create color transitions by masking color gradients.

Just found this, sorry but disagree with Randy. What I think we want is for hue values to animate during the transition. This would be very different then just fading in one color on top of another.
At at the very least, "popping" into the next color kinda looks bad, as it is. Fading would be minimal. Awesome feature, but this could be the "killer" feature for XD if you guys see it through all the way.
Probably also need to select which "model" to use, maybe? Because, really, I'd want a hue shift in the HSV model, which probably looks different then animating RGB values from one set to another.
For now, this effect can be achieved in XD using layers and changing opacity value.
