Animation in the same frame stops when overlay is opened

In the same frame, I have a slider and three cards with overlay. Normally, slider is working. But it stops when I hover a card and opened an overlay.

In the photo below overlay opened but slider stopped:

If you have an overlay open up in a prototype, you can’t interact with anything outside of the overlay until its closed. I think this may be why your slider stops working, so one possible solution is that you can make your cards interactive components that trigger a change to the hovered state on hover instead of opening an overlay.

Is this still in beta version of Figma? I sent a request them.

Yep it’s still in beta, but you can sign up here: Sign up for the interactive components beta
