For years, creating animated and interactive content on the Web has required learning complex tools and managing proprietary plug-ins. With Adobe Edge Animate, that has changed. Using this tool, designers can create engaging content and graphics quickly and easily, relying on widely-accepted Web standards and requiring a minimal amount of code.
In this course, you'll explore the basics of this tool, including an introduction to the interface, the basics of animation, and how to create graphics and add interactivity. You'll also master more advanced concepts, such as how to integrate Edge Animate with other tools in the Adobe Creative Suite and publish content to the Web.
Along the way, you'll build three projects from scratch: an animated Web banner ad, an interactive product catalog, and a photo gallery. By the end of the course, you'll be prepared to begin creating animation and interactive content for the Web and for mobile devices.
