Hello Edge Animate fans! After months of intensive development from
the Animate team, we’re proud to release a major update to Edge Animate CC (3.0) available
right now with your Creative Cloud membership. This release comes jam-packed with brand
new features, giving you the tools you need to keep pushing the boundaries of animating with HTML.
What will you find in this release?
Audio Support (!!)
Sound can be an essential component of any interactive multimedia experience. Whether it’s
adding subtle sound effects or creating animated stories, audio will help you bring your narrative
to life to enhance the experience of your viewer. We’re quite excited to bring you audio support
using all the native HTML5 audio capabilities. This will let you import audio into your projects,
synchronize sound with your timeline and easily control audio events with new snippets and
playback controls. Since we’re using the browser as the player, anything you can do with
sound in the browser you can do inside of Animate. Cool right?
We’ve put a lot of love into this feature and put together some documentation to help get you started.

Creating motion for multiple screen sizes can be difficult. This is why we’re brought you responsive
scaling to help your Animate projects scale up and down to fit different viewports. With this feature
enabled, your projects will resize to fit whatever container you place it in and scale up and down
as the container or browser resizes — keeping the aspect ratio of all your animations in place.
To try it out, just check “Responsive Scaling” for the Stage properties, preview in the browser and
watch the magic happen.
anything you can imagine without having to write it yourself from scratch. If there’s anything we’ve
your compositions. Since Animate uses the open web to create your projects, it only made sense
for us to easily allow you to bring in all your favourite libraries like Greensock, Edge Commons,
jQuery UI and many more. In the library panel you’ll find a new section called “Scripts” — click the
plus button to bring in that favourite JS library from your hard drive, or point to an online source.
But wait, there’s more! Also included in this release are enhancements to OAM publishing, usability
improvements for motion paths and object alignment, and other goodies to make your editing
experience even better. To see an overview of all the new features, check out What’s New in 3.0.
Can’t wait to get your hands on it? Click on the “Install” button beside Edge Animate CC in your
Creative Cloud desktop app to install, or visit creative.adobe.comand select “Download”.
Thanks to you, our loyal fans, for your ongoing feedback and support which help us drive what
happens with each release. You rock. Happy animating!
