CSS sprite sheets have opened up another door for web motion, allowing you to efficiently animate a series of images—anything from button states to character poses. In this quick course, Tom Green, in this Lynda.com course, shows you how to animate a character's walk cycle by creating a sprite sheet in Flash, editing in Fireworks, and putting it into motion (and into your HTML) with Edge Animate.
This is a new version of a hand coding exercise I created in Dreamweaver. Now that my college has the Creative Cloud, I am starting to teach my students to use the Edge tools. This exercise is part one: coding the HTML page. In part two that I will upload in the future, the students will learn to add CSS in Edge Code.
I would like to know the strategy of educators in teaching students about taste for design, or design acumen. The way how will educators know that a particular design is better than the other. furthermore, what are the techniques educators are using in teaching design concepts and boosting creativity of the students.

Once upon a time, about 20 years ago, Adobe used to have these amazing seminars almost every month promoting or introducing a new software, tip, or how it works with other companies in every city. As a young student, I looked for the opportunity to attend and possible snag some cool door prizes (probably my proudest win was an Adobe t-shirt!)...nowadays, these rarely comes to town anymore? Everything is now online.Or is it just my imagination....
What products or product functions has Adobe discontinued that you would like to see them bring back? For example as a print designer I had to switch to another company's product when they removed JDF functions from Acrobat. Why would they do this when most print providers are using PDF-X? Adobe says not enough Acrobat users were using that feature. PDFs have grown into a hugely diverse tool used to do everything from forms to prefighting. Perhaps it has grown too large...do we need a production platform dedicated to these PDF needs from Adobe?
n part 2 of this tutorial, Tom Green uses Dreamweaver’s HTML5 video tools to add a background video to a webpage. He adds all of the necessary properties to the video tag and shows how to use Dreamweaver’s preview options to test the page in different browsers.
Using After Effects to edit a video clip, Tom Green prepares a clip for use as a background video for a webpage. In part one, he uses black and white, blur, and compression to reduce the file size and data rate. The final step is outputting the video from After Effects and preparing mp4, webm, and ogg versions of that video for the web.
More and more students are attempting to bring their own devices to classes (ranging from smartphones to tablets and beyond). I believe we should establish a set of "best practices" which will guide other educators as usage of such devices continues to grow. Specifically, what apps (and devices) are most helpful to students in learning? What apps (and devices) are most helpful to educators in teaching? How do we share screen content between devices (particularly when demonstrating a concept)? What issues do we face as educators in the use of mobile devices within our institutions? What obstacles do we have to overcome in the use of mobile devices? How do we best address these issues? I thought the best place to discuss these questions (and more) would be our Adobe Education Exchange.
Each month we invite an industry "name" to talk to the Interactive Multimedia and Advertising and Graphics Design students at my College. I record these lectures and make them available to my students. In this lecture we featrure Val Head, CSS Animation "Goddess of All She Surveys".
In this Lynda.com course, Tom Green explores the emerging workflow between the Adobe Creative Cloud applications and Edge Animate through a series of hands-on projects. Discover how to create phone and tablet applications using both PhoneGap Build and Dreamweaver with Edge Animate. Then learn how to build an interactive banner ad using assets created in Photoshop, Fireworks, and Illustrator. The course wraps up with a lesson where you use your Edge Animate skills to create projects for Adobe Muse desktop, tablet, and smartphone sites. Topics include: Exploring the project filesPlanning the workflow of your projectsOptimizing and sizing your images in FireworksAdding Smart Filters and blur to video with PhotoshopAdding Edge Web Fonts to a compositionUnderstanding the responsive features in Edge AnimateCoding in Edge AnimateAdding content to Muse
HTML5 is a good choice if you're looking to embed video on your website, since visitors don't need any special plugins and HTML5 is becoming more widely supported by browsers. But the lack of a single accepted video codec does pose some challenges. In this Lynda.com course, Tom Green takes you through the history of video on the web, and shows you how to move forward with HTML5. Learn how to play a video stream on your website, set up autoplay and poster frames, and use alternatives like Adobe Dreamweaver and the JW Player to play back video. A series of Challenge and Solution videos give you a hands-on opportunity to practice what you've learned.
How to use Buzz.js, Edge Code and Edge Animate CC to add the .mp3 and .ogg audio tracks to an Animate composition.
The new audio feature of Animate 3.0 is dead simple to use. It is especially useful for adding background audio to an Animate composition. This video explores creating the audio and adding it to an Edge Animate composition.
If you're looking for a student only view of Behance portfolios please see http://studentshow.com instead of going to the normal site. Student Show displays only the online portfolios of students.
There are 4 videos in this YouTube series. The first walks you through the assembly of the composition. The second shows you how the mp3 and ogg files are created in Adobe Audition.The third video shows how to write the HTML5 code that adds audio to Animate. The final one explains how to easily use the Buzz.js library - free- to add audio to an Animate composition.
I posted this to my Facebook page last night and thought it might be of interest over here. It is a reaction to Adobe Education's research paper "Creativity and Education: Why it Matters". I am a bit leery of formalizing the subject of "Creativity" into an academic role and, instead, suggest that it can't be taught. It must,though be fostered.
