All is in the title...
Why in 2017 "Trim paths" is still not available in Animate CC?? It's a basic animation effect, available in after effect but for strange and mysterious reasons unknown in Animate where it's really a nightmare to create similar effect (and spend hours), however Trim path would so have his place in Animate.
I'm an illustrator and animator, I use Animate for 99% of my work and I SO need this option... PLEASE update it!!!!

(and sorry for my uggly english)

I'm in 2020 and it's still the same... What I do is I do a mask layer and just draw on it... like literally frme by frame. Finally it gives me the effect I need but it takes time... This simple trick can be easily done in AE (3-5 minutes).
However if I trim a simple path like a square, or a circle this can beeasily attainable by transforming the mask and applying either Shape Tween or Classic Tween. 
Gosh I spend days trying to solve this issue and the only solution for compound shapes is to draw on mask layer frame by frame... Pity...

Yes Adobe Animate seems lacking in the animation features. Go figure. Please add this feature.
