FREE COURSE: Beginner to Advanced With Adobe XD Auto-Animate
Adobe XD auto-animate is a simple yet powerful feature in Adobe XD, which allows you to link together artboards in your prototype with beautiful, authentic animation. Once you’ve crossed the initial hurdles, it’s very easy to use, and the resultant animations are similar to what you might expect to see in finished websites.
Auto-animate is a great way to get your prototypes looking and functioning like a fully finished product. In this short course, Dan White will take you from being a beginner to an advanced auto-animate user!
If learning gets too complicated, you can always take a look at the Adobe XD templates on ThemeForest.
