Hi, I have 0 experience in XD. I teach Ae course and my students create prototypes in XD/Sketch/Figma in a UI course. I wish to know how can they enhance their UI prototyping using Ae animations and micro-interactions.
doing some reading in the resource files I see XD cannot import video or animations: Gif, mp4, json - is unsupported, so is there any way at all they can embed pre-maid Ae animations in XD? Because the only other option I see for enhancing their UI prototyping seems to be capturing a recording of the mobile screen as they use the app they made, then imprting that video to Ae and there adding stuff to it OR export the layout from XD to AE and doing the whole animation there... this of course means it's a Video - no more user interaction.
In light of all that, any advice on best practices to maintain flexibility and efficiency in prototyping in XD with help of Ae would be appreciated.
Import and export, Missing feature, Plug-ins, Preview, Prototyping, Share or publish
I added my vote. So I can conclude that after all my research, there is no way to import animations/video to xd (or same kind of apps even) and if I want to enhance the demo (with things more complex than what XD has) I can only create a video which is not interactive and I can resort to 2 options: 1. Record the screen as I preview the demo in these apps, then in Ae I can on top/next it add additional things 2. Export the demo screens and artwork to Ae and create the animations there
