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.

    I am legit DYING for this feature. I'd love to be able to create animated components and add them to artboards. Also - what happened to the 'time' trigger?

    This feature would be fantastic; I like how animations are implemented as behaviors in Flinto, that could be a good starting point. Currently I do my design in XD but then in order to create more realistic prototypes to show to the clients, I need to redo everything in Flinto as XD animation options are very limited. Finishing the entire project in XD would make much more efficient and pleasurable workflow.

    That would be awesome!
    I don't mind creating simple animations using multiple artboards, if they could be used as (transparent) layers on the main artboard. Maybe as an animated symbol/group?
    Please, please make this happen!

    This will help getting rid excessive artboards just for micro-animations (preloader, menu/back/close icon, etc).

    Please consider adding basic control to movement path/direction like when spinning a preloader graphic.

    This is really important.
    Right now every little animation requires a new artbord = a lot of almost identical artbords.

    This feature is a must! Default animations are not good enough, we need custom!

    Invision Studio has a great animation feature we could borrow features off. Much more powerful then XD.

    Micro interactions would really be cool they are seen everywhere in state of the art UIs. Today we are obliged to export XD proto to HTML CSS JS and the code these interactions manually... lots of time loss and we have to do it every time our prototype evolves... headache !

    So many prototyping programs can't support animated gifs. If developers think that small animations aren't something that our clients expect to see (they do) and don't want to spend the time to offer those features for real, just supporting gifs would shut up a lot of our clamoring.

    A step in the right direction! Could use a "Custom Animation" field, so we can paste in the values of a curve from AE or some other animation tool to create custom ones! Please and thank you so much!

  • Jerry Wang commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I like this! But I think if we could just add an individual animation interpolator to each element would fine, something you could find in AE. No need to have too much settings, an visual curve interpolator can set duration, offset or spring effect and so on. Quick and easy.
