N.S.L: WEEK 100 – Adobe Edge Animate 1.5: Triggers and Animation Workflow


I don’t know how many of these I will do. What I do know is that when Freehand Profit suggested I start a weekly project, I didn’t think I’d last a month. I thought he was crazy and I probably used some fowl language at his face =D

Here are the Adobe Edge Animate projects I’ve done in the past:

This week I’ve been studying up on An and the great improvements have developed. Major stand outs were interactivity and how easy it is to make your project responsive. Early on I realized I wanted my project to have some interactivity involved… but I can’t interact if I don’t have content! Since this was such a milestone for me, I wanted to use several apps for this project. I first jumped into Adobe Illustrator CS6 and then Adobe Photoshop CS6 before even launching Adobe Edge Animate.

I wanted to have this pig flying around my Space scene. It has to do with the saying “When pigs fly”. Not only is the Fat Chance Crew flying, we’re in orbit!!! =D
I created this guy in Adobe Illustrator CS6 using the InkScribe tool.

Now that I have my project assets created and laid out, it is time to start building my animation. The text will look different because I’m planning on using web fonts for that. I will post that up as soon as it is completed! WOO!!!!
