Software training firm Infinite Skills Inc. this week released its “Learning Adobe Edge Animate CC,” an introductory course teaching essential skills and tools for incorporating multimedia content in web design using Adobe’s new multimedia platform. Adobe Edge Animate is designed as a replacement for the discontinued Adobe Flash program, taking advantage of new multimedia capabilities built into CSS3 and HTML 5.
Developed in 2011 by Adobe, Edge Animate is a multimedia authoring tool designed to succeed Flash as a platform for browser-delivered multimedia and animation content. The program can be used to incorporate animations, animate and customize web fonts, and create animations for navigational features like buttons and menus.
Infinite Skills’ Learning Adobe Edge Animate teaches the fundamental tools and techniques for beginners to create multimedia content using Edge Animate, and incorporate it in web development.
Course author Tony Ross is the owner and operator of tonyteach.com and a freelance motion artist, animator, and trainer. He has more than 20 years’ experience in teaching and training computer graphics, video, web design, and animation. His teaching style is based on breaking complex problems into simple steps, providing lessons that are at once challenging and manageable for new users.
Ross starts off with an overview of Edge Animate, explaining how users of other Adobe programs, Flash, After Effects, and Photoshop, can best approach the new program.
From there, the course covers Edge Animate’s basic interface features as Ross demonstrates how to arrange the workspace, adjust properties, and work with the basic tools and views.
Ross then dives in to Edge Animate functionality, looking first at importing images and working in the code panel, and moving on to cover working with web fonts and creating custom web fonts and animated type.
The course then moves on to working with animation, where Ross demonstrates basic animation skills like working with keyframes, adding animation, creating loops and motion paths, and working with CSS filters.
Other topics covered include creating navigational features like buttons and menus, working with audio, using templates, and finally, publishing and exporting projects.
“In this course, we’ll cover the fundamentals of Edge Animate so you can begin creating your own multimedia content as quickly and efficiently as possible.”
