Introduction to Adobe® Edge Animate Preview

Book description

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

This ebook 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 easily accessible to anyone and are written for the average designer, but there¹s also plenty here for even the most experienced Flash developer.

Readers will learn how to navigate the Edge Animate interface to begin creating web-based animation and interactivity; perform computer-based animation focusing on auto-generation; create simple objects and learn several ways to animate them; use the Text tool to create live text elements within Edge Animate; insert completed animations into a web page; and animate existing HTML pages. This updated version also covers working with actions and symbols, building complex animations and dynamic interactivity, and publishing Edge Animate animations for use in other applications such as eBooks and Adobe Digital Publishing Suite. This book should definitely be your first stop before you launch Edge Animate for the first time.
