I have just started a new site using Edge Animate which I'm completely new to. The website is a collaboration between my brother and myself, he has been working on some Flash animations for the site and I'll be working on the website design. After reading recently about the move to HTML5 I decided to try Edge Animate to move with the times, however the Flash animations were started a while back and it would be too much work to try and re-create them in another program.
Is there a way to import an existing Flash animation into Edge Animate? Or a specific format to export out of Flash for it to work in Edge?
I have heard of a Flash to HTML5 converter but wouldn't know how to insert the converted file into Edge, or if it's at all possible.
Thanks in advance
there is a flash plugin called createjs
i think it will convert it to an canvas animation.
but its not possible to open it in edge animate then.
Rob is correct; CreateJS outputs to Canvas, so while you can open the file in Animate, you wouldn't be able to edit it.
That sounds like it might do the job, but will it be possible to add a trigger to the Canvas file once it's inserted into Edge Animate such as 'on mouse click'. We don't need the animation to play the whole time, it would need to triggered to play as it would only be a part of the website.
