I am working on a fairly simple interactive app for the ipad and other devices. I don't have any programming experience, but I am an animator, so my idea is to create the interactive animations and buttons in Adobe Edge, then put it on one page in InDesign to create a folio. Is this a practical workflow?
Also, the foundation of the app will consist of short video clips that the viewer watches. Is there a work around to import video footage into Adobe Edge, and is it practical? I have read that you have to create a .PNG sprite sheet of the video then import it. I have made the sprite sheet, but am confused about importing it into edge, because it comes in as one large image.. Anyone know of a tutorial on this, or know of any other workflows for video footage.
I found a good tutorial on sprites in Adobe Edge. I understand sprites now and see they are not practical for video footage, seeing as I have 150+ frames each.
I am going to need sounds, so I will definitely try out the Edge Commons software there. For the app I'm creating, the videos need to be played seamlessly without player controls, and running offline. Now I am importing the .png file sequence into Edge, and going frame by frame w/ opacity. It's beginning to be cpu intensive, so the sprite sheets might have to do.
