The reason I bring this up, is because people are wondering how they can use Edge Animate to create banner ads. Banner ads have to work in ad software and they have to be able to report metrics like clicks and interactive events that denote engagement. I have verified that an Edge published file can be provided to DoubleClick for Publishers as an iFrame tag. However a discussion in the Doubleclick for Publishers forum seems to indicate that the use of an iFrame will prevent DFP from hearing clicks.

Given that Flash is still the choice for banners, it would be nice if Adobe would get together with Doubleclick and figure this out.
Now one of the easiest things you can do is create redirect URLs for clickthroughs. In fact many agencies provide Doubleclick redirect URLs to artists and ad software so they can track clickthroughs in real time on their end. Other options are Google Analytits redirect URLs, or anotther third party rich media vendor like Pointroll.
There is also cachebusting. In DFP (Doubleclick for Publishers) the cachebuster is %%CACHEBUSTER%%
So the redirect URL would look something like this
