Adobe Edge Introduction
Easy to use
Add motion to graphics and HTML using the powerful timeline editor in Edge Animate. Edit property-based keyframes and use enhanced easing equations for precise animation control, or use the Pin tool to help speed up the animation process.
Create content that works reliably on mobile devices running iOS and Android™ operating systems, as well as modern desktop browsers like Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Internet Explorer 9. Also, define a fallback state so your content can display on older browsers.
Create nested animations with independent timelines and interactive capabilities. Symbols are reusable and can be controlled via exposed APIs and pre-built code snippets
Rich interactive capabilities
Native HTML support
Open existing HTML pages and add motion to individual elements. Edge Animate works natively with HTML, and the animation code is stored in a separate file so the integrity of the page is preserved.
Drawing and text tools
Build compositions from scratch using drawing and text tools, and manipulate objects with an array of transformation and styling options. You can also import a variety of web graphics such as SVG, JPEG, PNG, and GIF files.
Publish with options such as emitting HTML markup for SEO friendliness, choosing whether jQuery should be packaged with the project, or adding a preloader to specify what should be shown before the project is downloaded.
Create compositions that can adapt to different screen sizes, such as tablets and smartphones.
Add richer typography to your compositions by integrating with a web font service such as Typekit.
Digital Publishing support
Import Edge Animate compositions into the Adobe Digital Publishing Suite with Adobe InDesign CS6, or into Apple iBooks Author.
Down-level browser support
Generate content that gracefully fails on browsers that don’t support the latest web standards. Animations fall back to a static state, which you can define on the down-level stage. Edge Animate also supports Google Chrome Frame for additional compatibility on older browsers.
Content created with Edge Animate is designed to work reliably on iOS and Android devices, and modern browsers such as Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Internet Explorer 9.
