Smart Animations

Hi there,
Any plan plans to have smart animations? Or get some sort of pro tool without using extra plugin.

Hi! Just to be clear, by “smart animations”, are you referring to automatic transitions for the position/styles of matching layers, like Magic Move in Keynote, and Smart Animate in Figma?

Like in Figma.
I have used and abused in InVision Studio, but looks like the Figma it’s the same.
Not using most of the times animations but for some projects it’s a must or a need.

Thanks for clarifying! Before we get to addressing this type of request, we need to unlock some newer capabilities of our prototyping engine. The good news is that this technical foundational work is currently underway, so we’ll look at reaping the rewards of that and taking bigger steps with prototyping a bit further down the road.


Invision Studio was so awesome.

I think my question is similar to this because I really want to create presentations with animations still available in Sketch. Right now we make our designs in sketch, then export the jpgs to keynote, make it so it looks the website page is moving while on a laptop screen, then we export it to power point for the Account Service team. This is SO many steps. I know. you can make animated presentations in Figma, would love this in Sketch!


Welcome to the forum @jseroogy and thanks for the suggestion and the use case. Examples like this are always useful! Once the technical foundational is there and we decide to expand our prototyping features, we’ll return to this topic. In the meantime, feel free to add ideas and vote for ideas. This helps us further down the road.

Thanks @jonne and @paulozoom I definitely will !

So right now to prototype with animations we have to export from Sketch to Figma, right? Because Sketch currently is not good enough to achieve good levels of animation in prototypes

Hey @LegendofJuli

Welcome to the conversation and the forum.

Currently, we’re not offering animation features.

We can use Principle too, it’s a good tool.
