"HTML5 Animations to be used on the web"

What do you like best?

Thanks to a timeline and a panel very intuitive properties, Edge Animate allows you to create great animations using modern web technologies, such as html5, css3 and javascript. The animations created can be used either on web pages created, for example, with Dreamweaver, or on mobile devices.

What do you dislike?

It is no longer updated with the upgrades of the Adobe Creative Cloud and this is not positive because it is really an excellent software, which could also integrate more presets in the actions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try absolutely to create banners, canvas and any type of animation in html5, much smoother and with different interactions with the user. It is easy to use, with a really intuitive timeline and does not require a knowledge of web codes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used it often to create banners for Google in hmtl5, which have a great visual impact compared to classic static banners or animated gifs, or to create animations and intro that can embellish web pages.

"Animations for websites"

What do you like best?

Edge Animate is a software to create web animations, in hmtl5, thanks to an intuitive timeline with which you can animate individual objects. It is perfectly compatible with graphics made in Illustrator and allows export for Dreamweaver or mobile devices.

What do you dislike?

More export possibilities, perhaps to create intro or animations for native iOS or Android apps. Adobe should continue to update this beautiful software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need to create animations for the web world Edge Animate is the right software because it combines the simplicity of using the timeline and actions with the satisfactory results you get.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I made several animated graphics for websites, canvas html5, animated banners for Google circuits, and I tried several actions to create interactive videos for users.

"Excellent software to create animations"

What do you like best?

Edge Animate allows you to create animations in html5 and css, even without knowing the code. In fact, it is enough to know some basic notions and make the most of the timeline and the property panel. You can create very fluid animated banners, slideshows, intro and everything you can use on web pages or within applications for mobile devices, obtaining efficient results without being a developer.

What do you dislike?

Unfortunately it is a software that Adobe has not been updating for a while and this is really a pity, because it works very well especially when you need to bring animations made on other Adobe software, such as Dreamweaver or Muse. The approach to responsive mode could probably be improved.

Recommendations to others considering the product

One of the best software to create animations in HTML5 to be used mainly for web pages, intro or animated banners, perhaps the only software that works perfectly with both Dreamweaver and Muse thanks to the export of a proprietary file. Moreover, from the properties it is possible to manage the responsive that nowadays is fundamental.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Edge Animate I still make all the animations for the intro or web pages, using graphics and illustrations created with Adobe Illustrator. I've also created animated banners in html5 that are definitely much more professional than animated GIFs.

"Professional quality html5 animations"

What do you like best?

Edge animate allows you to create professional quality animations in html5, css3 and javascript, with final results suitable for both desktop websites and smartphones and devices. It allows the creation of different canvases, also responsive and has within it several pre-set actions.

What do you dislike?

Adobe no longer has updated Edge Animate that has remained in the CC2015 version and honestly it is difficult to understand the reasons, although probably has focused on the new version of Flash.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Edge is definitely one of the best software that allows you to create high quality html animations, with the possibility of inserting a single file inside Muse or Dreamweaver and inserting interactivity for users. You can create slideshows, intro or entire web canvas.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have implemented animations created with Edge Animate within Adobe Muse that has a special panel that covers the scrolling effects. In addition I created animations to be used as preloaders on websites, always made with Muse or Dreamweaver.

"Top Notch motion graphics Software"

What do you like best?

Adobe Edge Animate allows me to quickly create and edit motion graphics and movies for my agency. These can be exported into a number of formats that can be embedded or edited by others. Adobe's Creative Cloud makes it easy to collaborate with other team members and share graphics and other stock images.

What do you dislike?

Even though Animate pulls graphics from other Adobe sources, such as Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop, certain traits are not supported. For instance, Adobe Animate does not support shadows or depth using grids and screen overlays. This removes some of the original richness of illustrations and graphics. It is also challenging to manipulate sound or music, you must do this in another program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go through Adobe's tutorials before trying to jump in. You may find yourself too overwhelmed to continue- edge in gradually!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Creating affordable marketing movies for distribution across social media.
