Part A Edge Animate
1. Create Edge Animate project
2. When complete, go to the File > Publish Settings (menu command) > Tick & Select Animate Deployment Package. (Take note of the 'Target Directory setting - you will need to browse to here when you are in Muse) Then click the Save button command to the lower right.
3. Go to the File > Publish menu command to complete the publishing process to an .oam package file.
The above process creates an .oam file that will be 'Placed' in your Muse site.
Minimize Edge Animate and go to Part B.
Part B Muse
1. Create Site with Pages.
2. Now to place the Edge Animate .oam file.
From the Plan tab, double click the page thumbnail you want to place the Edge Animate .oam file.
3. Once that page is open, go to File > Place. At the prompt navigate to the /publish/animate package/ folder (that was created from A.2) and select the .oam package file.
4. Click anywhere to 'drop'/place the loaded .oam reference.
5. Now the Edge Animate file is placed onto a page, File > Save Site your Muse project file.
6. Now you need to save the project into html format. Go to File > Export As Html.
7. At the prompt: enter the domain name location you plan to upload these project files; set the Location (to save the files) to a new folder (i named this folder 'museTest') on your Desktop; then click OK.
From Part B you should now have a folder on your desktop with the exported muse .html files.
The exported folder and structure should look similar to this (aside from my named folder of museTest):
> museTest (root folder)
> assets (sub folder of root folder)
> css (sub folder of root folder)
> scripts (sub folder of root folder)
Now move onto ftp the folder to your host.
Part C Ftp Program
1. Open ftp program of your choice (I use Filezilla).
2. Enter the credentials (ip/url, username and password) to your host destination.
3. Upload the entire folder (mine is called 'museTest') from the Desktop to a destination folder on the remote server.
Navigate to the remote folder destination via your browser of choice. So in my case I upload the entire folder 'museTest' to the root of my server structure I should be able to navigate to the site in this manner
Or if your server does not have default documents enabled you may have to navigate to it directly, like this
an oam animation imported in muse can't be a button link to a website?
THANK YOU!!! You made that simple....I didn't do any thing crazy at this point, but it worked easily and the file came into muse easily!! I love it when things just work!
Dear friend if its not late for you i ll give some information about your situation same was happened to me and i solved the problem by chaging the asset files names ex: this was a logo animaton there were seperated letters as png files one of them was missing every time i uploaded to ftp and filename was invalid caracters when i change it everything seems ok then if this was helpful i ll be very happy of it
Hi Guys, Thanks for all the great info. So I got it to the point where I export the muse file and FTP it using FIlezilla as suggested by @heathrowe. OK, is that it? What about the files edge created when I exported? Do I need to ftp those files too? if so what folder do i place them in on the server? Thanks alot fellas! Izzy
