    Thanks Yann! This is also being asked often, so it's on the roadmap :)

    It'll be the same as Sketch. So you get a license + 1 year updates. Every year, if you renew, you'll get another year of updates. If you prefer not to, you can still continue using the version you already paid for.

    Thanks Rafael! Love the prototype you've shared.

    Can you share the box shadow settings you're using? I'm able to set opacity on the shadow so I'm wondering what issue you're seeing?

    Yes, the full power of AE would be awesome :). BTW, when you don't need a completely new artboard for a transition, then typically it's because the animation is contained to one portion of the screen. In such cases, you can use symbol animations and "On load" animations to get what you want

    Symbol animations: https://youtu.be/n27NLZCX2Rs There's only one artboard for this, but you'll see how we use symbols to toggle between different states

    On Load animations: https://youtu.be/QxmEle3iG2k This is another quick way to move from one state to another for just one symbol

    I agree it's not the full power of AE, but maybe this can address at least some of the scenarios.

    Yes, but depends on what you're looking for. If you go to the Diya menu and select "Copy Prototype JSON", you'll get the entire animation in JSON format including the artboards, layers, transitions, easing values etc. However, the JSON is in Diya's format. Is there any reason you're looking for JSON?

    Thanks D Dot!

    Would be nice if there was a way to group the layers created from the morphing

    That’s an interesting idea. And makes sense too. I’ll explore this possibility

    I did hit a wall once I tried to animate something with more than one transition.

    When you say “more than one transition”, do you mean an object that goes from A to B to C, instead of just A to B?

    have some way to record a .mov

    I’m exploring this as it’s often asked by users :)

    And please do experiment more and let me know how it works for you!

    Ah ok! So that's what I suspected too!

    Thanks for the detailed explanation, Anthony!

    I’m not too familiar with code export for Framer, but afaik, they export the parameters of your animation, right? As in, they don’t actually export a code module that your developers can plug into their iOS/Android code?

    If it’s animation parameters you are looking for, then Diya exports “Animation Specs” for iOS, Android and Web. When you hit ‘Export’ on Diya’s bar, you’ll get 2 HTML files - one is for the prototype and the other is for your animation specs. At the bottom, you’ll see options for Apple SDK, Android SDK and Web.

    Would that help your scenario?

    Lottie keeps coming up in discussions very often with users, so I’m looking into this to see if it is feasible.

    Anyway, this is just the start. Lots of things planned in the future for Diya :)

    I'm discussing this with several users to understand what is required before committing resources to it. Can you share more about what you're looking for in iOS/Android export? Do you mean animation export or code export?
