You're right, you can't import animated GIFs yet, only static GIFs. Unfortunately, there isn't a way to import animation in at the moment, though it's something we're looking at in the longer term. We do have a number of features we want to put in first that would allow for more expressiveness, so you can expect to see improvements over the upcoming year as we grow XD. Thanks for hanging in there with us!
Thanks for the update. What i'm reading from your response is that it can actually take a few years still?
Either way, I love the Adobe suit, though this is just an important missing element!

Is there any timetable for this feature? It's so essential to get buy-in from non-designers, it bothers me to have to use InVision or Proto.io just to add video or GIFS, as their software isn't nearly as user-friendly...

Many thanks for your post.
The web/apps etc are packed full of animations and video elements these days - how can an app designed to be a prototype tool not allow for any animated elements... seems an odd one to have missed out.
Is this going to be added anytime soon? I really hope so- I think UX is one of the most exciting of all your new apps... but this really lets it down. I've read at least 50 posts about this subject today - so it should be bumped up your list
Huge love for the work you've done.
Completely agree with this. A project that I'm working on has now come to a standstill because one of the screens requires an animated element. It's very unprofessional to have to present the prototype to my client and have to point them elsewhere to see the animated element.
Hi there! Any updates on this? I also want to use an animated GIF for my project. I have a series of screens in my XD prototype and only one of them has animated content, such as highlighting a part of UI and make that highlighting element disappear within 2 seconds. The entire XD demo is helping us understand overall user flow but that only one screen I am not able to create in XD itself since there is no support for GIFs. I wish we could use different image formats in XD.
elainecc Checking in on this 12 months on.
This seems like such a huge hole in the capabilities of AdobeXD. Being able to add animated gifs and or videos would go such a long way to the amount of detail that could be shown in the hi-fi prototypes XD creates.
At least 1500 other people agree...
Hopefully this will show up in XD soon.
Thanks for highlighting this – we’re aware of it and are actively working on increasing our prototyping fidelity! Stay tuned…
Any news on the video or animated gif feature for XD? Or at least an estimated time of release?
Please give us an update when we are able to add videos/gifs to XD? Is this going to happen in next few months or another year?
you really need to add this feature. It's ridiculous not being able to use animated gifs or video in a paid-for prototyping app!
