Introduction to Adobe® Edge Preview 2

Book description

Adobe® Edge is a new web motion and interaction design tool that allows you to create web-based animation and interactivity in HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript. Edge enables you to create animation and interactivity without writing thousands of lines of code--and its revolutionary interface allows you to build sophisticated graphics using a simple point-and-click workflow.

This book is geared toward web and interactive designers who want to put some pop in their web content through animation and interactivity. The exercises and descriptions are written for the average designer, but there’s also plenty here for even the most experienced Flash developer.

In this ebook, you will learn how to:

  • Navigate the Edge interface to begin creating web-based animation

  • Perform computer-based animation, particularly frame-by-frame animation and auto-generation

  • Create simple objects and learn ways to animate them

  • Use the Text tool to create live text elements within Edge

  • Animate HTML pages

  • And as Edge evolves, watch for new ebooks as Adobe releases new versions of the software with extended features and capabilities.
