Join Jake Ströh for an in-depth discussion in this video How Edge Animate and Flash implement content on the web, part of Migrating from Flash to Edge Animate.
…We have Site folder, which will be the…destination for us to publish our project two.…In there, the necessary assets that we've created in Edge will be published.…We'll then take a look at the generated HTML file for script…embeds and the proper HTML to transfer over into our existing homepage.…Let's open samoca-export-start and then go to File > Publish Settings.…We have three publish targets.…Web, Animate Deployment Package and iBooks for OS X.…
We are interested in publishing this to the web, so we'll leave web checked and…next we'll go over to target directory and I am going to click on the folder icon.…And I'm going to make sure that I have directed where…I want to publish my files, which is in our Site folder.…We have three more options.…One is to use Google Chrome Frame for old IE 6, 7 and 8 browsers.…We also have the ability to host runtime files on Adobe's content delivery network.…And our third option is to publish content as static html.…

Jake Ströh explains how the web has evolved away from Flash, while pointing out key similarities and differences in Edge Animate that make migrating at times both smooth and challenging. He shows how to re-create a simple Flash banner ad inside of Edge Animate, walking through tasks that should be familiar to Flash developers, like keyframing parameters and working with symbols and nested timelines. Text, audio, and video work differently in Edge Animate, so Jake also spends time on those techniques. Then he'll work through the process of developing an interactive mobile prototype that accepts input from touch screens. When you're done, you should have the tools you need to migrate to Edge Animate and start building web projects that live up to modern standards.
