Adobe Eg

About Edge

Whoa, a new Adobe product. Im tingling already. Lets dive in.
Adobe® Edge Preview is a new web motion and interaction design tool that allows designers to bring animated content to websites, using web standards like HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS3.

Downloaded and opened up, Edge gives you the opportunity start a new project right away or download a working sample to take a look into. Looking into it I am amazed by the fluidity of the small samples.

A look inside the Program

I go into it to try to change elements and find that there are no menus. The program is very bare bones. I couldn’t change the color of a text item that i wanted to enhance so i checked out the assets. turns out the the assets are a bunch on .png files, pretty much what you’d find in a Flash program.

The animation is completely based on the timeline. Yep good old fashioned Flash. I have to say it does quite resemble the After Effects program more. So if you know how to work it and bring amazing things to life in Flash and Aftereffects, Edge will be a breeze for you.
