In this course you’ll learn the fundamentals of Edge Animate, Adobe’s motion graphics and interactivity tool. The contents of this course include:
Getting to Know Edge
In this chapter you’ll get a general overview of working with Edge Animate. We’ll explore the workflow, create a composition, and take a closer look at the files that are created when you save an Animate project.
Learning the Edge Animate Interface
This chapter will focus on the Edge Animate interface. We’ll begin with the Start screen and then walk through the panels, menus, timeline, properties, elements, and tools. We’ll also look at the handy in-app lessons that are included with Edge Animate.
This chapter will explore the fundamentals of animating in Edge Animate. You’ll learn how to work with keyframes, the playhead, the Pin, easing, and more, as well as how to test your animation both in the timeline and in a browser.
This chapter will focus on advanced animations. You’ll learn about nesting and see how to create a symbol and add it to a timeline. We’ll also work with sprite sheets and put text in motion.
Creating Edge Animate Graphics
Often you will want to create graphics in another application and import them into Edge Animate. In this chapter you'll see how to create graphics in Photoshop, Illustrator, Fireworks, and Flash for use in Edge Animate.
Text is more than “that gray stuff that goes around the pictures.” This chapter will walk you through the major text features and techniques available to you in Edge Animate. You’ll learn how to enter type, format it, choose custom fonts, and more.
When it’s time to add interactivity to your composition, the only way to do it is through code. Fortunately, as you’ll see in this chapter, Edge Animate makes the coding process accessible to anyone.
Edge Animate and the Web
In this chapter you’ll learn about web-related Edge Animate features like down-level stages, preloaders, and responsive web design. You’ll also see how to animate a static HTML page, publish your finished composition, and add a composition to a Dreamweaver document.
The Edge Animate Wow Factor
In this chapter we’ll look at some of the amazing things you can do in Edge Animate, such as adding a Google map, inserting a YouTube video, creating a custom preloader, and more.
In this workshop you’ll go beyond the basics in Edge Animate to begin exploiting the software’s full potential. The contents of this course include:
Introducing Adobe Edge Animate
In this introductory chapter, we’ll explore some basics of the Edge Animate application and build a foundation for the lessons to come.
Animated Cafe Logo
The lessons in this chapter demonstrate how to build an animated element from scratch using Edge Animate.
Building a Responsive Header
The lessons in this chapter demonstrate how to build a website header that takes advantage of Animate’s responsive layout capabilities.
Creating a Dynamic Slideshow
In this chapter you’ll see how to ingest externally managed data within an Animate composition that informs the dataset and navigational layout of a dynamic slideshow.
Targeting Mobile Devices
Edge Animate is created with mobile in mind. In this chapter you’ll see what this means to you and how to use the Edge Animate features related to mobile.
Edge Animate and Flash Professional
This chapter focuses on the relationship between what may initially be seen as two competing products – Flash Professional and Edge Animate – and demonstrates how they can be used together.
Now that we have all these compositions on hand, what is the most effective method of distribution? This chapter will detail a number of ways in which compositions can be used across platforms.
The lessons are wrapped in a feature-rich interface that lets you jump to any topic and bookmark individual sections for later review. Full-Screen mode provides a hi-def, immersive experience, and Watch-and-Work mode shrinks the video into a small window so you can play the videos alongside your application. Also included are exercise files that give you an easy way to try out the techniques you learn.
It's easy to watch this course from your Android device, iPad, or iPhone (4 or later). Access videos straight from your browser, or, for Android devices or iPads, use this course in one of our free apps.
Project files are included with this course so you can practice what you learn and work right along with the videos.
This course features video2brain’s interactive interface. As you navigate the course, rolling over a chapter or video brings up text describing that item.
Full-Screen mode provides a hi-def, immersive experience. And Watch-and-Work mode puts the video into a resizable window that you can shrink so you can watch the lessons on one side of your screen while you’re following along and applying what you’ve learned on the other.
This course comes in crisp 1280 x 720 high definition video.
Available in the downloadable version of our courses, this feature makes it easy to create a custom bookmark in any lesson to mark where you left off or to make note of something you want to refer back to later. You can even add a name or short note to remind yourself what the bookmark is for.
