As I mentioned Adobe Flash is well established on the market. It is number one choice for web designers who want to create animated banners, full flash websites or even games or applications. The good news for those of you who are confident in using Flash and want to give Edge a try is, you wont have any problems. Adobe Edge interface is very similar to Flash’s with the commonly known elements like the stage, timeline, assets or symbols conveniently placed for your disposal.
When building websites efficiency is the key. So we’ve tested Edge in that department. With a little bit of self training and the previous Flash experience we have managed to animate our home page banner in no time, which is amazing. Static to animated – no problem. You can see the result here.
Edge is free to try out. You can get a newest version here. Although it is still in Adobe Labs, it will be available straight away when it is released to all Creative Cloud subscribers. Another good reason to join in!
Even though there is some more testing and tweaking to be done Adobe Edge seems to be a solid piece of software which for now will coexist along-side with Flash. What future brings who knows, one thing is sure though, Edge will be evolving to fully take advantage of new HTML and CSS. That is a good news for all: designers can now reach more public with interactively enriched websites, and viewer can enjoy beautiful sites on any device of their choice.
