Join Dani Beaumont for an in-depth discussion in this video Animation support in CC Libraries, part of Muse CC 2017: New Features.
- [Danielle] Let's take a look at recent improvements to the creative cloud library to support animations or OAM files. Now, the Adobe Creative Cloud has used something known as OAM as a file format to share animations between applications in the Adobe Creative Cloud. Programs like Animate CC, or the one before that Edge Animate, allow you to create an animation that works in modern browsers using CSS three and HTML five without requiring any sort of a flash plugin or a flash player.
So that means it'll work on touch-enabled devices and modern browsers. Adobe Muse has supported OAM files by selecting file place and browsing on your hard drive for that source OAM, but recently the creative cloud has been updated to allow you to put it in a library, and this allows you to more easily share it amongst projects that you're working on or with your colleagues by way of the creative cloud sharing feature. Let's take a look at how I'm gonna go ahead and bring those animations here into my project.
Now if you notice here in the creative cloud library panel, I've got my matcha elements folder selected and I've got a number of graphics that are here. If I roll up the graphics drop-down, you'll notice there's a new section now for animations. Animations behave just like graphics in order to bring them into my project, I just press and drag, and then click to release it. I'll do that with the first, I'll come in and select the second one, and click and release, and we'll grab that third one, and for the third one I'm gonna go ahead and layer it behind that line.
And I'll line these guys up a little bit better in my layout. That'll do. Now Adobe Muse supports animations, but I can't preview that animation on the design canvas. In order to see these animations in action, I'll pull down on file to preview the page in the browser, and as I scroll down on the document, notice I've got my three different icons and they're animating in a very adorable way here.
So with this inclusion of OAM files into the creative cloud library, it's never been easier to integrate all of your animations into your Muse projects.
