Hello,

I have the following issue :

First, I create a smart object in Photoshop and then add it to the CC library. Then when I import it from the CC library to Adobe XD or After Effect, the smart object shrinks and looks totally pixelated. It doesn't preserve it's original size and quality. But when I double click on it (from the CC library panel) I can edit it in Photoshop and it looks just fine.

Do you know what's going on here?

Thanks.

Hi MatiouLilou,

Thanks for sharing the details here, would it be possible if you could share either the screenshot or the prototype with us via private message. So that we may assist you further. Are you experiencing it with After Effects as well?

Thanks,

Hello Atul_Saini,

I will send you a psd and an xd files examples. You'll see that once imported in XD, the smart object doesn't preserve it's original size and quality.

Hello,

It's been 5 months now, have you found a solution? If I can't add smart objects to the Creative Cloud library and then reuse them in Adobe XD, there is no way for me to create a Design System and taking advantage of Photoshop in conjunction with Adobe XD.

One of the reason I support Adobe XD is to take advantage of the whole Adobe Ecosystem...

Indeed, the ecosystem is not optimized. I have the same problem and the only way I have found so far is to pixelate the image and then re-put it in the library. XD don't like Photoshop dynamic objects ...

Same issue here - make your files in double resolution of 72 (144 dpi) then they import in the right size in XD.
