Depending on how your composition is set, there are several things that could be done.
I would use a randomizer to randomize your animations. Is it symbols or the same timeline. Can you give us more details?
Right now I don't have this animation set up with symbols. Each graphic element is a seperate layer in one timeline. Flash has the ability to set up seperate timelines for objects in a group. Can Edge do something similar? If so, I haven't seen any tutorials on it yet.
Is it possible to set up seperate timelines for individual layers in a single edge animate file?
Would converting each object to a symbol acheive that effect?
Yes because then you could play them randomly or you could use labels, make an array of the label names and them play the labels randomly.
Forget the Flash thinking and start new. This will help you learn faster.
If there are tutorials/lessons on stuff like this for Edge, I'd love to be pointed to them so I can 'forget' about flash....

Maybe this could help you?
This is not randomizing the layers but it is randomizing the labels.
You could also use a symbol for each color and then randomize the symbols. Just make an array of your symbol names instead of the labels.
also if your layers for the color are just colors, this may help you too:
I'm still hammering through - I'll give these a go and see where it leads. Thanks!
I know this is an old question. But to anyone else reading this.
As Slyrr also mentions
"Would converting each object to a symbol acheive that effect?"
Yes, converting to symbol gives the layer it's own timeline, and by using setting the autoplay checkmark lets you loop the animation independantly from the main stage.
