I'm just now allocating some of my After Effects / Cinema 4D mograph time to learning some animation chops for the web. Am I wasting my time learning Edge Animate since it's discontinued, or will it's features be rolled into Adobe Animate CC?
Thanks in advance.
EA development being discontinued does not prevent you from using it. I am still using it in production every day and it probably will be fine for a long time unless a browser update brakes it which is possible but not extremely likely.
Flash/Animate 2016 includes HTML5 Canvas. It is possible that it will include EA features along the road but we really do not know at this time.
I guess if you are doing something that is not totally critical, then go ahead and use EA.
The cell based timeline in Flash has always made me cringe, so it's nice to work more fluidly in EA. I hope we see some of this in the evolution of Animate.
Thanks again for the input.
