Will Adobe Edge Animate be the tool that will replaces Flash? Edge Animate is the new Adobe software that outputs animation in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. It includes features for creating interactivity such as looping, hyperlinks, and animation control. Adobe designed and tested Edge Animate output to work reliably on iOS (iPhone and iPad) and most Android devices, as well as on popular desktop browsers such as Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Internet Explorer 9 and newer.

Participants in this session will learn how to take a slide built in Flash—including animation, voiceover, and button interaction—and redo it in Edge Animate. You’ll explore the promising features … and the lack of features that might cause pain for Flash fans.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How Adobe Edge compares to Flash
  • How to use Adobe Edge
  • How to create button “actions” in Edge
  • How to add audio to an Edge animation
  • How to extend Edge Animate with JavaScript libraries
