November Meeting: Edge Animate
Entry posted on Oct 22, 2012 by Chris Griffith

Come join the San Diego Adobe Developer User Group on Monday Nov 5th at 6pm as we present an evening of animation and interactivity.
First we will take a look at Edge Animate (formerly known as Edge). Adobe Edge Animate is an all new tool from Adobe which seeks to enable the authoring of motion and interactive experiences through HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript in a manner consistent with other Creative Suite applications.
Next we will take a brief look at create.js. Developed by Grant Skinner and team, this extension for Flash Professional allows users the ability to export their Flash animations to run solely using HTML/CSS/JS.
As always we will discuss some of the latest news and rumors in the tech world.
Hope to see you there for this animated meeting!

Adobe Edge preview 5 is now available!
Entry posted on Mar 12, 2012 by Darius Fattahipour

Preview 5 introduces significant improvements to speed up the animation creation process, new on-stage tools, as well as publishing and optimization features for older browsers and lighter code output.

More Info:
• Labs: http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/edge/
• New video: http://tv.adobe.com/watch/adc-presents/introducing-adobe-edge-preview-5/
• Full feature list: http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/edge/features.html
• Updated FAQ (PDF): http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/edge/faq.pdf
• Blog: http://blogs.adobe.com/edge/
• Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/AdobeEdge
• Twitter: https://twitter.com/adobeedge

New Publishing and Optimization Features:
- Publish to web: Preview 5 has an option to specify if jQuery should be packaged with the composition, or downloaded from a CDN to produce lighter code and improve caching.
- Down-level browser support: Define a fallback state of a composition for non-HTML5 browsers like IE8 and below.
- Preloader improvements: Choose what gets shown during the preloader (before the framework, jQuery, or composition is loaded).

Emphasis on animation:
- Timeline: We made several significant improvements to the timeline that make composing animations much easier and faster, such as an easier to use Pin (formerly the Mark) and smarter playback behavior.
- On-stage tools: New clip and transform tools make it easier to manipulate objects and create animation effects.

Many other enhancements:
- Improved symbol functionality, stage editing options, the ability to swap images, more intuitive contextual menus, many bug fixes, and much more have been added to preview 5.
