Animate 1.x has jQuery 1.7.1 built in, so you can use most of the solutions just by implementing it in your code and assuming that jQuery events will be there. Remember that you will need the element handle (sym.$("myElementName")) when you use jQuery methods.
Hope that helps,
Are you saying jQuery is built into Animate CC? I don't need to put it into my HTML to use it?
When Elaine answered this question, jquery was included with Edge Animate. The latest version does not include jquery. So if you need to use it, you need to include it in the script loading panel. The latest version is jquery-2.0.3 and can be found here.
