Topics include:

  • Panning, zooming, and rotating with the new Camera tool
  • Sharing documents and symbols in CC Libraries
  • Creating and managing vector brushes
  • Adjusting brush pressure, tilt, and size

In this course, you are going to learn how to design and develop web-based games for HTML5 Canvas using Adobe Animate CC. You are going to look at the entire game development process, including building the game world and environment, devising core game mechanics, creating a multi-state, interactive player sprite, along with a set of obstacles and rewards. You’ll also integrate audio into your game and build out a start screen and game interface to supply user feedback mechanisms. From beginning to end, you will perform all of your asset design and coding within Animate CC. By the end of this course, you should have a solid understanding of how to work with Animate CC for game creation, and become more familiar with game design and development concepts as well!

Learn Adobe Animate CC: Data-Driven Animation

Learn to create data-driven animations, such as a data-driven image carousel and an interactive RSS feed, using Adobe Animate CC—the newly relaunched version of Flash Professional. Joseph Labrecque takes you through both projects step-by-step, providing easy-to-follow instructions for interacting with JSON and XML data sets and using jQuery to ingest and parse data in HTML5 Canvas-based projects. The complete carousel will display images, captions, and controls for customizing the transitions, while the RSS feed display will load news items in a “click to view more” animated interface. Find out how to set up each project, build the interfaces, ingest data, apply animation, and program user controls. Plus, learn advanced techniques for creating dynamic titles.
