    Missing important image functions - going for Hype

    man&mouse

      I made a product presentation with a meny system and aniamtions using Edge.

      I unfortunatelly found some very important functions were missing.

      So I´m going for Hype now, that has got all of these.

      So all the job has to be doe again :-(

       

      I didn´t find any feedback area for Edge Animate, so I´m putting it here. The things missing are:

      - Automatic Image optimization (like in Muse)

      - No support for PSD

      - No retina support

      - Can´t replace image, e.g from PNG to JPG (I made it thou by editing the JS-file, but that seems scary)

       

      These are all small matters for Adobe to fix and I suppose they are doing this in the future.

       

      I really like Edge Animate thou, but since it lacks important workflow functions I can´t use it in production.

          Thanks for the feedback. Will add these to the future enhancement requests.

            Hi, man&mouse-

             

            Please note that there is a way to swap images, though it will try to fit the new image into the old dimensions.

             

            1. Select your image element
            2. In the properties panel, look at the Images section
            3. Next to the image name, select the double arrow key
            4. Select your new image (must already be in the Library)

              Hi,

              Thanks. Yes, that worked.

              I actually didn´t find this because in all other Adobe applications, this is done from the Library panel.

              I really stress the importance for you to make your/Adobe applications the same. We users love Adobe apps, but are really not liking the unnecessary different solutions in some of them. It´s frustrating and a complete waste of time.

               

              I actually remade the whole animation using (Tumult) Hype.

              It´s much easier to work with. Edge seems good to work with Javscript, but with Hype editing Javascripts is not as much necessary since there are pre-made solutions.

              You should also look into some things Hype has that is really important:

              - Automatic generation of Retina images

              - Automatic resampling of images

              - Scenes (a very nice way to work)

               

              All in all, Hype is much more efficient to work with.

               

              A thing that I do want in Edge (and Hype) is

              - When using Photoshop originals, it should be possible to set how each image should be exported, i.e as JPG (and setting quality) or PNG.

              In the real practical user world, we do only want ONE image to carry around for different purposes, it.e web, animations, videos, print.

              And when designing (doing layout) in i.e Edge, I do not always from start know if the image could be in JPG or if it must PNG because it is e.g. overlapping.

               

              The feature of settings export options for Photoshop images, I also would like to see in Muse. As well as Retina support in Muse that i REALLY want.

               

              I like Edge (and really like Muse), but as it is now, selection Hype is an easy choice over Edge.

               

              I hope that you do update Edge to support an extremely good workflow - then I will certainly selected Edge, since I already do pay for it anyway

               

              Best regards
