Animate matching layers not working properly after latest release

After installing the latest release ( version 116.15.4) the Animate matching layers is not working properly.

In the attached example I added an animate matching layers when switching from a frame to another and works well if there is no content within the different sub-frames, while it starts to bug when you add content inside.

See the full video to understand what I mean.

Before the update it was working properly, frames within frames with different names where switching and animating properly, while now there is a delay before the content appears.

Hey Alexandre,
Hmm it looks buggy, not sure why it doesn’t work properly with adding content inside. Would you mind reaching out directly to the support team with your video recording and a copy of your file by filling this form here?
Please use your Figma account email, include a link to the file, and share it with so they can take a closer look. Thank you!

I would like to mention that I am having the same exact issue with content appearing on delay. After trying everything I’ve finally concluded that it must be a bug.


Yes, it is definitely a bug. Was working as intended before the latest update, now it does not anymore.

Thank you Celine for your comment. Just reached out to the Figma Support, hopefully they’ll see it. Had to remove all smart animates from the project…

Hi there. I’ve been working on a prototype for a couple of weeks now and this bug is causing some major issues for me. For some reason, there’s also a bug affecting my local components. Neither was an issue a few days ago.

Any luck here? I just reached out to Figma Support.

Yes, facing issues as well and this is severely affecting our work.
