Overview

Adobe Edge Animate is a powerful, intuitive tool for creating stunning animated and interactive content using HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript. Edge Animate is intuitive and has powerful features that can save time and headaches. Content made with Edge Animate runs gracefully on mobile devices and desktops, expanding your reach on the modern web.

Creative professionals seeking the fastest, easiest, most comprehensive way to learn Adobe Edge Animate choose Adobe Edge Animate Classroom in a Book from the Adobe Creative Team. The 7 project-based lessons in this book show readers step-by-step the key techniques for working in Edge Animate and how to create Web-Standards compliant graphics with animation and interactivity using this new HTML5 authoring tool from Adobe.

This new Classroom in a Book starts out by showing you how to create shapes and make transformations, then add creative typography using Web fonts within precision layouts using intuitive tools. The next project introduces motion graphics on a timeline with property-based keyframing, and goes on to add complexity with nested animations and easing. Integrating interactivity comes next and shows users how to choose a method depending on their knowledge of coding: beginners can use built-in code snippets or more advanced users can employ custom JavaScript. Finally, the reader learns how to use percentage-based positioning and sizing for responsive designs that dynamically adapt their content’s resolution to a variety of browsers and devices. At the end of the course, the reader will have mastered Adobe Edge Animate to create interactive and animated content that runs seamlessly across desktops, smart phones, and tablets.

    Adobe Edge Animate is a part of the Adobe Edge Suite of HTML5 de

    Adobe Edge Animate is a part of the Adobe Edge Suite of HTML5 development tools that was released in September of 2012. The API is built on the Webkit rendering engine and works natively with standards-compliant HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript for the creation of animated content that will run seamlessly on desktops, tablets and mobile devices (including iOS), without the need for external browser plugins like Flash Player to play the content. It is aimed at non-programming and hybrid front-end designers who want to create interactive and/or animated web content for mobile and tablet devices that now no longer support the Flash Player. The interface is similar to Flash in that it offers a stage and a similar host of panels -- tools, properties, timeline, elements, and library, and thus will feel very familiar to flash users.

    "Adobe Edge Classroom in a Book, The official training workbook from Adobe Systems," takes a step-by-step approach to training, with chapters in creating graphics and importing art, designing animation, refining animation and adding complexity, adding basic interactivity, embedding media and advanced interactivity, and publishing and responsive design. There are seven chapters, each with a guided, step-by-step lesson to give the student hands-on-experience in creating animated content with the material covered in the chapter. The pieces created include -- an advertisement, an animated banner ad, an animated intro for a website for a tv series, an interactive photo gallery, an interactive music festival guide, and a responsive website. The instructions are all clear and concise, and, although HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript and jQuery are briefly defined, I would prefer a bit more detail, as well as explanations aimed at people who are comfortable with hand-coding. There also could be more information about browser differences in regards to which HTML5 and CSS3 elements are supported along with the work-arounds for non-browser supported elements. The book is a good intro and good for creating a few interactive pieces, but you have to look elsewhere for more detailed explanations of the material covered.
