Rafiq Elmansy has posted a new Flash tutorial:How to Create HTML5 Banner Animation in Adobe Edge, in the tutorial Rafiq will try to show you how to create aHTML5 banner animation in Adobe Edge using the timeline animation.
Edge is one of the new promising Adobe tools that make it possibleto create HTML5 animation through a timeline and an interface similar to other Adobe applications, such as After Effect. Thus, it makes creating HTML5 animation very easy for designers who do not have any experience with coding, and allows them to create HTML5 animation without having to write a single line of code.
Here are the steps of this tutorial:
Step1: Now, let us start by installing and opening Adobe Edge. From the File menu choose New File. From the Properties panel on the left, set the document width to 550 px and height to 150 px.
Step2: Open the background color picker and set the background to light gray.
Step3: Choose Import from the File menu and open the PS.JPG, a Photoshop icon with 100px x 100px, and place it in the banner as seen below.
Step4: Use the Text tool to write “Photoshop”
Step5: Animate the Photoshop icon and the text through the timeline.
Step6: With the timeline indicator positioned at the beginning of the timeline, move the Photoshop icon image to the top of the stage as below.
Step7: Move the timeline indicator by a few frames and drag the Photoshop icon image to its final position in the stage.
Step8: Move the timeline indicator back to the first frame and select the text on the stage.
Step9: Move the timeline indicator to the end of the Photoshop icon animation. Set the Opacity value to 100%
Step10: In the text animation layer, click the green area that represents the animation and drag it to the right, as in the figure below, to make a delay between the appearing of the Photoshop icon and the text.
Step11: Adding the second icon and text to the animation.
Step12: With the timeline indicator in the same position, select the Photoshop icon image and set its Opacity to 95%, you will notice that a sub-layer for the Opacity value is added to the Photoshop icon layer in the timeline.
Step13: Move the timeline indicator and from the stage, add the Flash icon image above the Photoshop icon.
Step14: Move the timeline indicator to the beginning of the Flash icon animation and select the text “Photoshop”.
Step15: With the timeline indicator in the same position, use the Text tool to write the text, “Flash”.
Step16: Move the timeline indicator where the animation of the Flash icon ends.
Step17: Repeat the steps above with the AI.
Step18: Save the file and you can preview it in the browser from the File > Preview in Browser.
