Adobe Edge Experiment

Posted by on Aug 5, 2011 in Web Design | 2 Comments

The animation above isn’t Flash, it’s a JavaScript animation created with Adobe Edge. Adobe Edge is a prototype application that allows designers to create iPhone/iPad friendly JavaScript and CSS3 animations. Edge is an HTML5 technology and designed for mobile devices, but it’s not sophisticated enough to be a Flash replacement. Right now it lacks bells and whistles like filters, drop shadows and layer styles. There’s also no coding panel to insert scripts. The application interface looks and feels more like AfterEffects than Flash, hopefully it will eventually evolve into a robust tool for creating cross-platform rich media content.

    Well. i knew it wasn’t flash at the fist look… Too simple, in fact.
    With flash, you’ll have the stars glowing, have a better render.

    It’s cool for Iphones and Ipads which can’t run flash, and you can use it as fall back from flash on these devices.

    But seriously, make it with flash, you’ll gain time, possibilities, and it’ll work on all devices if you did it well. (oh oups, fallback like this for ios, sure…)

    You’re right. It’s very simple.

    However there’s an interesting thread on Adobe’s forum, if you’re interested, about the future of the application.
