    issue with preloading audio & responsive scaling

    seriouscodecreator

      2 things that I have noted with the new 3.0 version of Edge Animate:

       

      1. Preloading audio caused my page never to load when using mp3 & ogg files. After turning off this stage option the page loaded fine. Also noted on my mobile android device when using the preloading option (where preloading isn't allowed) the same page - that gave my pc fits - loaded okay further convincing me that there is some issue I can easily avoid by not preloading audio. 

       

      2. When using the scaling option & centering the stage when maximizing the screen the original fonts became grainy - I must not have made my original stage large enough so type is being scaled up - I used Pinyon Script & Verdana which both came with Edge Animate. I had used the stage default size of 550 x 400 pixels. my pc's screen resolution is set at 1600 x 900. my mobile device looks fine, its screen resolution is 1280 x 720 hd.

       

      To Adobe Support, Is video going to be added like audio was, other wise I will just use edgehero so I can get After Effects effects to work.

       

      In Sara Hunt's video she references a Greensock Animation that she used, Could she please post her example somewhere or otherwise tell me where it is downloadable from? I would be very interested in how she got the Greensock script to stop & restart inside Edge Animate - something I could not get to work previously. Thank you.

          Thanks for your report. Of course, this shouldn't be happening. Can you tell me which browsers you were testing with, and the exact build number of Animate in the About Box? Oh, and any details about the mp3 & ogg files, such as where they were encoded, their duration, compression settings, etc.

           

          Thanks,

          Joe

            Joe,

                I was using Chrome. the current version of Chrome reports Version 32.0.1700.102 m   but I think it updated just after my testing & report. I used Adobe Audtion to create the ogg file from an mp3.

             

            Edge Animate reports version 3.0.0.322.27519

             

            Audition reports Version 6.0 Build 732 (64-bit)

             

            I will upload the files so you can test them more thoroughly

             

            Thanks

              Thanks Bob.

               

              If you wouldn't mind zipping your project folder and uploading it to Creative Cloud and IM'ing me a link to download, I'd also like to see the audio in context with any other features in Animate you may have used in your comp.

               

              Thanks again,

              Joe

                Hi, Bob-

                 

                Regarding your second question, we don't do anything special (like changing the font size in the CSS) for the scaling; we apply a scale transform to the font and let the browser handle the rest.  You might want to try applying that manually to see if it's a problem with the browser.

                 

                Regarding your third question: we're looking at video for a future release, but you  shouldn't expect it immediately.  If you're looking at a project in the next little while, you might want to rely on external libraries like edgehero.

                 

                And your last question: Paul Trani has a great tutorial on how to use Greensock within Edge Animate.  Simply integrate Greensock using the + next to the Scripts section in the Library Panel, and then follow along starting at around 3:15:

                  Elaine,

                      It does look much better in Internet Explorer rather than Chrome. Chrome is where I had noticed the issue. I don't use IE anymore.

                   

                  Thanks for the video reference - I will try this approach. I had used another person's example but had trouble implementing it.

                   

                  Thanks

                    Joe,

                      Thanks for finding my stupid error of placing an index.html file that did NOT stick to the naming convention of my other edge animate generated files (xxxx-edge.js etc files) in my web server directory - mystery solved.
