1:00 PM - 1:45 PM Thursday, March 23
Expo Hall: Tools and Tech Stage
For years Flash was the dominant tool for creating slick, professional-looking animations. But with Flash now on its way out and HTML5 becoming the new standard, what should you be using to create your custom animation projects? Have you heard about Adobe Animate? This tool is Adobe’s replacement for Flash Professional; it will allow you to create the same kinds of detailed animations, but now with new features as well as an output that’s compatible with the technology and devices your audience is using to view your content.
In this session you’ll explore the basics of Adobe Animate. You’ll look at how exactly you can use it in your projects and what kind of work it can best enhance. To get acquainted with the tool, you’ll get a quick tour of the interface, view samples of content created with it, and discuss best practices for using Animate effectively. You’ll even see a real-world demonstration of how to create an interactive element that you can easily incorporate into existing eLearning projects.
In this session, you will learn:
- The basics of creating animated content with Animate
- Best practices for working with Animate
- How you can use one piece of Animate content in many products and environments
- How to add Animate content to Captivate projects
