With so many tools out there, why is Animate unique and useful for UX? Learn the answer in this video.
- [Instructor] With so many software applications dedicated to UX design, why use a product like Adobe Animate for such a task? Well, Animate has been around for a long time, much longer than any of those applications, and retains a huge existing user base because of this. Many people are very comfortable using Animate for all sorts of projects. Animate actually includes many of the same design tools within it as newer, dedicated UX design software. But being a platform-agnostic animation and interactivity application, it allows us to build out our experiences from early designs and prototypes all the way to fully realized productions. It is absolutely possible to build a final deliverable using only Animate. Adobe Animate also includes a wealth of motion design tooling and a mature, capable timeline and tweening system. This allows for fine-grained detail when adding rich motion to your UX designs. One last thing before we move on. The focus of this course is user experience design within Adobe Animate. If you're interested in expanding what you learn here to motion design and animated elements, be sure and have a look at some of my other Animate courses as part of the LinkedIn Learning library.
