Create for Animate

Get the Most Out of Animate and the Creative Cloud

In this course Tom Green explores the emerging workflow between the Creative Cloud applications and Edge Animate through a series of hands-on projects. You’ll see how to create phone and tablet applications using both PhoneGap Build and Dreamweaver with Edge Animate. You will then discover how to build an interactive banner ad using assets created in Photoshop, Fireworks, and Illustrator. Finally, you’ll learn how to use your Edge Animate skills to create projects for your Adobe Muse desktop, tablet, and smartphone sites. One highlight is exploring how to use the video features of Photoshop in your Edge Animate projects.
