    Couldn't agree more. InVision going down is a regular occurence and it's a pain in the ass. Can't count how many hours I spent trying to fix sync issues and explain to clients that I have no control over these bugs.

    I could be wrong but I'll believe it when I see it. I still remember when they announced Motion—their advanced animation tool—back in 2015 saying it was coming soon...

      Hey Marc - hit me up at stephen[at] so I can look up your account here make sure we're dong right by you, really sorry for any inconvenience past downtimes may have caused.

      Regarding Motion, Studio is actually what this evolved into.

      When we first announced Motion we had a vision for a single-purpose micro-interaction tool that could not only build on top of our existing prototyping framework, but also make composing complex interactions less time-consuming (a chief complaint among the community today). We iterated endlessly and built several internal working versions. However we were never completely satisfied with the implementation and output. And rather than push something out to the community that didn’t measure up to our expectations we took a longer path of moving slower and embracing a new challenge. We began to think about what it’d be like if, instead of adding on top of our existing tools, we completely re-imagined what a screen design tool could be.

      In order to accomplish what we had originally set out to do with Motion, we needed to cast our vision larger. And in speaking with thousands of designers expressing similar sentiments, we became utterly convinced that in order to make our workflow better for designers we needed to rethink how a modern screen design should behave in its entirety.

      Its a bold move for sure but one we've poured every drop of blood, sweat, and tears we have into. Its on us to deliver on that promise to you now in 2018. Its been a joy to use internally and I think you're going to enjoy it too. I look forward to having you give it a go!
