Hi there Geezer,
If you are publishing a .oam from Edge Animate, then that one .oam is the only file you need to import into DreamWeaver- you don't need to upload everything Edge produces. This is because the .oam already has all necessary files (think of it like a .zip file). After you import the .oam into DW, DW extracts all files and assets to a new directory called 'edgeanimate_assets'. This article gives some more info on importing a .oam to DW:
I usually just use Publish for Web, as it is a bit more straightforward for my mind- all the files are visible, and I can just add the 2 little chunks of html to embed the Edge animation, etc. Here are a few good threads on how to insert your Web-Published Edge animation into an html page (you don't need php include):
The decision on whether to use .oam or Web is really up to you, depending on your situation. If you're handing off the files to another developer to implement, an .oam is more of a tidy package. If you're implementing the animation yourself, it might be more straightforward to keep it simple and use the Web publish.
Hope this helps!
Thanks for your reply. Took me a while to get round to testing it and a bit longer to realized that you have to upload the 'edgeanimateassets' file, not the OAM. Working now. Thanks again.
