If you're a premium member of Lynda.com, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. Inside the Exercise Files folder, you'll see that we also have an assets folder, which contains the images needed to perform all of our lessons. Below that, you'll find the corresponding chapter folders. And inside of there are each of the chapter lesson's corresponding exercise files. In some instances, there will also be finished files of the exercises that we've performed. If you are a monthly member, or annual member, of Lynda.com, you don't have access to the exercise files, but you can follow along from scratch, with your own assets.
Let's get started.
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.
