For the last two days I’ve been going through training on Adobe’s Edge Animate. I’ve been using this tool for a while now, but the class is actually opening my eyes to the possibilities and limitations that this program has. As someone that has used Flash since it was still called Future Splash, Edge in many ways feels like stepping back in time to 1998. This is no fault of Adobe, this is the reality of working with the limitations of CSS, HTML, and JS. It’s also the reality of using software that is in version 1.5. With that said, here are some things I’d love to see Adobe add in version 2.0
- import a JPEG, PNG, or GIF sequence as an Edge Symbol
- Video Support
- Audio Support
- Motion Guides
- A pen tool for masking/clipping
Adobe I hope your listening.
