You guys should take a look at Flash Professional 2015, soon to be known as Adobe Animate. It’s not just a rebranding of the program. Adobe has made strides to convert adobe flash CC to a tool that can now be used to output HTML5 Canvas animations. It’s works very well too. I see the current version of Flash CC Pro as being the start of something new and great for adobe.
I took it for a spin by converting a banner ad to html5 and the result was perfect. I was even able to use a google font in my ad.
Granted, the ad I was working on was short and pretty basic but the flash ad vs the html5 ad looked almost identical. Seemed to work in all modern browsers too.
It also did not seem to me that flash was spitting out horrible js code either. Looked clean and not alot of bloat. File size was small. I ran all of my images through tinypng and tinyjpg to make them super small.
I’m thinking the use for the Flash plugin is dead, but a tool to create html5 canvas animations is born!
I’m sure that when they release adobe animate that they will extend its html5 capabilities even further. The debugger works well too. So far impressed and looking forward to using Adobe Animate.
