Flash Professional and AIR 14: Creative Cloud Updates

FlashProCC2014

I’ll be speaking on these topics for the Hawaii Flash User Group on July 9th at 4:00pm Mountain Time.

In this session, we will explore what is new in the 2014 release of Flash Professional CC through a number of demonstrations which target Flash Player, AIR, HTML5 Canvas, WebGL, and more. We’ll have a look at the rebuilt Motion Editor, variable width strokes and profiles, advances in SVG and Sprite Sheet output, and more. We will also have a look at what’s new with the Flash Player and AIR runtimes as Adobe continues enhancing them with new and expanded features. Finally, we’ll have a look at some community efforts and statistics around the runtimes.

Join us at 4:00pm Mountain Time on July 9th at http://experts.adobeconnect.com/hawaiiflash/

Flash Professional CC (13.1) – December 2013 Release

The focus of this release of Flash Professional CC is the new native HTML5 Canvas workflow, which features a contextual user interface along with relative publishing options.

Flash Professional CC
HTML5 Canvas is a new document type added to Flash Professional CC that generates an .FLA file for authoring, and targets the canvas tag of HTML. This option enables the authoring of animation and interactivity for targeting web browsers without the need for Adobe Flash Player if those extended capabilities are not needed. The generated HTML file bundle is driven by the CreateJS JavaScript library, which was previously available as an extension for both CS6 and the previous version of CC. This functionality is now included as a prime target format within the application and is no longer provided through the Toolkit for CreateJS as a separate extension.

Related to this new HTML5 Canvas Document type are; an Actions Panel integrated JavaScript Editor, a set of JavaScript Code Snippets, and a handy HTML5 Canvas Conversion Command. I go over all these features in a new article for Peachpit.

There’s actually a lot more in the works for Flash Professional… but we cant talk about that quite yet :)
