How Do I Export a Prototype Animation From Figma?

Exporting an animation prototype from Figma is an important part of the design process and is used to create a seamless end user experience. Animation prototypes are a great way to give life to your design and make it easier for users to understand how the product works. In this article, we will discuss how to export a prototype animation from Figma and what steps are involved.

Step 1: Select Your Prototype

The first step in exporting a prototype animation from Figma is selecting your prototype. When you open up the Prototypes tab in Figma, you will be able to select from different types of prototypes.

Depending on what type of animation you want, choose the appropriate type of prototype. For example, if you want to create an animated transition between two frames, then you would select the “Transition” type of prototype.

Step 2: Configure Your Prototype Settings

Once you have selected your prototype, the next step is configuring your settings. In this section, you can specify how long the animation should last and what type of easing it should use (linear or ease-in/out). Additionally, you can set any other parameters that are available for that specific type of prototype.

Step 3: Export Your Prototype Animation

After configuring your settings for your animation, the final step is to export your animation. To do this, click the “Export” button at the top right corner of your screen.

Here you will be able to select which format you would like to export your animation in (GIF or MP4). Once you have made your selection, click “Export” and wait for your file to download.


Exporting a prototype animation from Figma is an easy process that involves selecting a type of prototype, configuring settings for it and then exporting it as either a GIF or MP4 file. This process makes it easy for designers to quickly create animations that can be used in their projects.
