(MUSIC). Well hello there, my name is Tom Green, I'm a professor of interactive multimedia, author of well over a dozen books, hundreds of tutorials, a half-dozen training DVDs, and a user of Edge Animate since it's release in mid 2011. Edge Animate is a great example of a creative cloud tool that works beautifully with the other Adobe tools and services. Because Animate is an interactive application doing everything from acting as a motion graphics application to performing mobile project assembly. You are able to use it seamlessly with the other creative cloud app products. Here are some examples of the real world projects we explore in the course. Using effects in Illustrator, Fireworks and Photoshop. Such as Photoshop's new blur technique.
And applying these to both images and video in your Edge Animate projects. Building an animation and using it as a preloader in Animate by taking an After Effects CSX video to Photoshop to create the animated GIF. Running your Animate projects through phone gap build, to create versions for a number of mobile operating systems. Explore dropping an OAM file into dream weaver to create an app directly in that program. Building a mobile site prototype for the desktop, tablet and phone by creating the assets in fireworks assembling the animation and the anime and the quickly creating the site in Adobe Muse. These are the projects we will tackle in this course. And the only impediment to you getting creative with Animate is your imagination.
Let's get busy and create with Animate.
