This is something I recently wanted to do, but found that the clipping in Edge Animate only allows us to make a square or rectangle shape. I'm pretty disappointed by this because technically you can make a circular, or elliptical, clip shape using HTML5 and CSS3. Also, the same is true for masks. I would love to see this as a future update in Edge Animate because I can see a few more instances where I would want to use clipping, or masking, in this way.
However, if someone has found a workaround for this please let me know as I'd love to be able to do this properly. Thank you. Love the application so far.

I like your animation. It's understated and elegant

But that's poor workarounds and we are far from what is possible in Flash. And I support your wish.
