Adobe Animate Multimedia Deign

Research: Adobe Animate

Next semester I will teach Adobe Animate and integrate the animations with WordPress. In this blog I will collect resources and tutorials as a preparation for the next semester’s UX classs for Multimedia Designers.

Tutorials Adobe Animate

“RubberNinja’s” tutorial is an introduction to the basic user interface (UI):

The next tutorial by “TipTut” with almost one hour of basic instruction. This is a good starting point, if you use Adobe Animate for the first time. It’s a quite long video, but you’ll get an idea of the animation workflow.

For those of us who knew Adobe Flash (killed by Steve Jobs a few years before his death): the workflow in Adobe Animate is almost the same.

Next steps:

  • Export to HTML canvas via Adobe Animate
  • Create a WordPress costum page
  • Implement the resulting code in WordPress
  • Enqueue scripts

Codewise you’ll see that knowledge of JavaScript is an advantage. Probably I’ll have to create some video tutorials about this on my YouTube channel.
