Do you need Adobe Edge Animate?
It may sound weird but as soon as you start working on any tool it is always a good idea to just sit back and re-assure the purpose and need. If you are in search of some tool which sounds familiar like Adobe flash player but also want to have most of the control over the animation files (including their source) or you are looking for some alternative which can work for mobile operating system as well then Adobe Edge Animate can be a suitable option for you.
It has a time based time based timeline (in Flash you see frame based timeline). It is the timeline that allows the designer to set the timing of the animation. The amount of timeline to be seen can also be adjusted. It is also possible to select multiple objects in a timeline at once.
Best thing about symbols is that they are reusable assets and can be used across the projects. They help in easy creation of interactive components and it is important to know how they interact with each other via targeting. Association of symbols with interactive elements like click is also possible.
Like Flash Edge animate can also define keyframes across the project timeline. Keyframes are the basic points of distinction which has the ability to define and modify properties of the elements across timeline. You can speed up and slow down an animation by decreasing or increasing the length of the keyframe respectively.
