Here's some good news. The status of the request is changed to "feature started"!  This indicates that the feature is under development and likely to make its way into a future update. Meanwhiule, check out the "Anima Plugin" that can help insert videos and gifs in your XD document.  Hope this helps, Harshika

Damn, too bad this is still not in there. Such a basic feature which is used by many of us designers and developers during prototyping. I just can't believe this is still not there. Very disappointing.

This critical feature was first suggested as a new feature in March 2016. Somehow it took another three years to make it onto the development 'start' list. Nearly 2 years after that... we're still waiting!!!

 

Seriously Adobe, this is just laughably bad. This is far and away the most requested idea in Adobe XD, yet in 5 years it's still not here?  The lack of any meaningful feedback on progress is also frustrating.  Should I wait another year, or simply use another prototyping platform?  I don't understand the need to be so opaque about such a fundamental feature.

Couldn't agree more with you all, I posted a comment on this back in December 2019 and still no movement on this. I'm considering moving over to Figma at this rate.

Hi Adobe,
unfortunately you don´t answer on your feature-request page.
Request for import videos & animated GIFs is
requested since March 2016,
"feature started" status since March 2019,

Why is there no progress? We simply want a simple animation import? At least give us a feedback.

You may checkout 2 of my workarounds - a spinner as XD-file.

It might help in some cases but unfortunately workarounds are blocking other actions on artboard like autoanimations or keyevents

Hi there,

 

We're so sorry for the delay. I am afraid, as of now, we don't have any official word by when this feature will be available. Having said that, let me assure you, I will share your feedback with the Engineering team. Please stay tuned to the UserVoice request for any updates.

 

Regards

Rishabh

I have moved my designteam away from Xd. You guys are not listening to the community and their needs. For us, other platforms do way better.

I'd be interested to see what you moved to. I can understand that mp4 files might be a lot to work with but I think it's ridiculous that I could put a motion gif file into an email signature, and yet somehow an adobe software won't allow it.

I'm surprised I'm only getting to this now. But recently I've been doing a lot of UX work and thought I could trust XD to do it. I can't believe that auto-animate is the only way for me to illustrate page transitions and animations within the layout. This is a feature that is needed.

Crazy that after still so many years of development, this feature is not available. It can't be that hard to import a video. 

I've been using Proto.io, which works great and you can import videos. Time to catch up Adobe.

Hi Adobe,

our team uses CC for years now. Started to use XD 2 years ago. Since then I have been waiting and waiting for animation and video support. In Webdesign video is essential. When we use XD, we cannot show our clients layouts that show the definite design. So the application is getting more and more useless. What a pitty!

I came here to see if Adobe XD has gotten better. I want to use XD but I need to be able to add video or more animated elements to my Prototypes. Guess Adobe is yet again behind on the times.

Back to using to Figma, see again in a few years Adobe hopefully XD is better then?
