Is there a way to consolidate the "Assets folder," so that my site loads faster?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
You're in luck! We just added in a feature to the latest version of Edge Animate CC (3.0) to enable the CDN option for OAM publish (what we call the "Animate Deployment Package"). This means that your Animate compositions can now references jQuery and the Animate runtime from the network instead of from the project directory. (Please note that this will only make sense for Dreamweaver and Muse integration with OAM and won't make sense for InDesign.)
To turn this on, launch Animate and go to File > Publish Settings. Then select the Animate Deployment Package on the left and click "Host runtime files on Adobe CDN." Save and publish, and you should be good to go.
Hope this helps,
