How to create complex content with advanced features

Introduction

By default all content in one Photoshop group will be merged and it becomes a bitmap in your prototype. In addition to this there are custom content types with advanced features that can be created by naming the group in format "Type:Name". These content types have specific features, configuration and rules, but otherwise they behave like normal groups in Photoshop.

  • Animation: Frame animations for more complex interactions
