Shadows don't animate with auto-animate
When I animate drop-shadows on an element it doesn't animate with the rest of the element. Only after the element has animated does the shadow jump instantaneously from value set A to value set B.
Thanks for sharing your feedback! This is working as expected today. See our helpX page for elements which can be animated, https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/help/create-prototypes-using-auto-animate.html
But this is a great feature request! I’ll move over to the forum for the team to review.
Way to less votes than this feature request deserves.

Just wanted to mention that you can work around this by duplicating the object, applying the drop-shadow to the duplicated object in the background, then having that background object change in size and/or opacity to create various effects on the drop shadow, such as emerging from behind the object or fading in.
