About this course

- Hi, I'm Chris Converse, and this is Edge Animate Essential Training. In this course, we'll learn to compose layouts, animate objects, and create interactive elements inside of Adobe Edge Animate. We'll also cover various publishing options, which will allow us to use our projects on the web, in an iBook, or share them with other Adobe authoring applications. We're going to start by creating symbols and elements, working with actions, all while working with a fixed layout size and standard web fonts. We'll branch into larger areas of web design and layout, which Edge Animate also supports. These things include using web fonts from online services and preparing projects to gracefully downgrade for older browsers.

So with all that, we've got a lot to cover so let's get started.
