Is there still no way to add a video to XD other than using the anima plugin? I mean I paid for the entire Adobe creative cloud all apps plan. I feel like this shouldn't be an issue.

Hi, at the moment it is not yet possible to insert video into an Adobe XD project, except with the Anima plug-in. However, you can track and rate the feature request directly from here: https://adobexd.uservoice.com/forums/353007-adobe-xd-feature-requests/suggestions/12924336-import-vi...

Adding video is the most requested feature for XD Import Videos & Animated GIFs to show in interactive preview and work has been started, we just don't know when we'll get it.

 

Keep in mind that XD (and other apps like Sketch, etc) are all still young apps (especially compared to Photoshop, Illustrator, etc). There are many features people would like to see added and developers can only work so fast. Competing apps like Sketch also cannot import videos.

So what you are telling me is I can pay for one of those apps and save tons
of money because Adobe is on the same time schedule as them. Maybe that’s
exactly what I’ll do. Save money in exchange for a lesser product. There is
a reason I pay the amount of money I do for every creative cloud app.
Because adobe is the best. It’s worth every penny, or maybe it was worth
every penny. Now I’m second guessing after your reply. --

Adobe has been developing features faster than Sketch and Figma. None of these apps (XD, Sketch, or Figma) can import/play videos, but there are other things XD does that the competing apps don't. Figma is actually more expensive than XD, and Sketch is only $20/year cheaper, but lacks a lot of XD's features.

 

XD stacks up very well against the others, but of course there's still more it can do (the same is true of most apps). There are lots of features we'd all like to see added to XD, but it takes time (and patience).
