    If you're talking about HTML with pure JS animations, take a look at Adobe Edge here: http://edge.adobe.com/

    Requests for new features in Dreamweaver should be submitted through the Feature Request/Bug Report form at http://adobe.ly/DWBug.

    Well previous(older) versions of Dreamweaver had a visual Timeline panel, which would allow you to animate elements on the page (via Javascript).. this has been removed and not been replaced with anything!... it's disappointing that you have to now invest in another application (edge) just to do what should have been possible in the DW environment

    The whole idea behind the creative cloud is to give you all the software under one umbrella. Features are deprecated for a number of reasons not least being that there are better alternatives from Adobe. Like Sudarshan said, do try out Edge before you feel disappointed.

    In truth, Timelines were all Flash based (not JavaScript).  Flash doesn't work on iPhone, iPad, iTouch, Android and other popular web devices.  You would be much better off using jQuery effects.  Incidentally, jQuery is open source (free).

    Actually, dmello is correct. Dreamweaver did have a JavaScript-based Timeline panel. If I remember correctly, it was removed in Dreamweaver 8 (or maybe CS3), but there was such an outcry, an updater was issued to reinstate it. However, the code was so ancient, the Timeline panel was permanently removed in Dreamweaver CS4.

     

    Edge Animate is much more powerful. What's more, you could get a perpetual license to version 1.0 of Edge Animate even with a free Creative Cloud account. I'm not sure if that offer is still available because the current version of Edge Animate is now 1.5, but it's worth checking if you don't have a full Creative Cloud account and you're looking for a replacement for the Timeline panel. Of course, with a full Creative Cloud subscription, you get the latest version of Edge Animate and any future updates.

    I stand corrected, David.  I remembered Timelines as all Flash and no substance.
