you can only use tweenjs and easeljs from the google hosted cdn, they're hosting preloadjs, soundjs and movieclip too, but you're not allowed to use those. only even a basic animation won't work without movieclip
True Animate is cool but totally useless if you can't use the movieclip CDN from Google.
Adobe needs to tell Google to put the whole createjs 2015.11.26.min.js or else it's pointless...
Big fail !
I can't even upload my new HTML5 banners to Google Adwords, still got to convert to Flash in AS2 to upload and now Google is killing Flash uploads in the end of June lol.
pretty sure Adobe is not the boss of Google.
Just zip local copies of the required libraries. AdWords is so cheap, the advertiser pays only for clicks.
Any updates on this?
I dont see big problem now. Zipped CreateJS lib is around 50kb and then you have 100kb zipped for banner. Using 2 libs and adding 2 libs you can have 140kb.
AdWords is the best, they have biggest max file size 150kb. 140kb with using 2 libs and adding 2 libs.
And all you must change in exported html is adding ad format size meta tag within the <head> tag. For example: <meta name="ad.size" content="width=300,height=250">
And you don't include any clicktag, ads are entire ad clickable by default.
Great for DoubleClick but we still wait for AdWords
Cool, Adwords must be coming soon ?!
Can you please elaborate on the issue with AdWords. What specific problems are you facing there.
For now are allowed only two libs (not full lib) from Google for use in AdWords. Check AdWords | HTML5 Validator
Full lib is on Google but still is not updated in AdWords.
IMHO opinion Google does not want to make AdWords as lenient as DCM, because the ads are free unless someone clicks. Initially they allowed no external links.
My opinion is that they will allow new library because they previous allowed that two libraries.
Hi, I'm very new to coding html5, so please can someone please talk me through the following? (in baby steps!)
Ok so when i publish my ad, Animate creates this link in the HTML file for creatjs:
This is what adwords doesn't like.
I downloaded the creatjs to run it locally but this makes the banner way too big, but adwords approves it.
Here are my files - www.fishdna.co.uk/work/html5/Archive.zip
I then read the above and tried to implement this into the HTML to use googles createjs:
replacing - <script src="https://code.createjs.com/createjs-2015.11.26.min.js"></script>
But when i went to preview this the ad stops working. Am i missing something fundemental?
Any help much appreciated, as i desperately need to move away from the proverbial nail in the foot to work flow that is GWD and start using Flash again, sorry Animate... ; )
you are missing 2 files.
<script src="//s0.2mdn.net/ads/studio/cached_libs/tweenjs_0.6.1_40840f08e9fb382ae9e4a337da542ed5_ min.js"></script>
<script src="//s0.2mdn.net/ads/studio/cached_libs/easeljs_0.8.1_58add2e69ca7fbe25e8f82a2b5f6a510_ min.js"></script>
The tween/easel-js aren't enough for Animate-produced H5-Banner - you have to download 2 additional createJS-subscripts:
- Bundled and single libraries: http://code.createjs.com/
Zipped, the 2 shrink to 17KB, leaving you with 133KB (zipped) to work with on your banner.
Thanks for the pointers you two, i think i followed what you suggested above, but its still doesn't seem to be working.
Could i ask another favour and someone look at the files and tell me where i'm going wrong?
many thanks in advance.
Had this same problem/nightmare. Ended up building 12 banners in Animate and Adwords wasn't having it. I'm hoping you've solved the issue with your ads, but if this is still giving you or anyone else trouble, here's all I did to make each ad upload successfully:
1. Include <meta name="ad.size" content="width=300,height=250"> or whatever the size of your banner is, under the <head> tag.
2. Replace https://code.createjs.com/createjs-2015.11.26.min.js with google's version:
3. Check your ads with this before uploading. If there are any other errors, it'll give you a bit more info on them:
Hope this helps!
Great, I tried in validator, it seems that DoubleClick hosted CreateJS is working now in AdWords. Send to AdWords and give us feedback if is work link, please.

It seems that google finally add entire createjs lib to adwords. Check out bottom link:
All code and assets must be referenced using a relative path to resources included in the .ZIP file. No external references are allowed except references to:
- Google Fonts
- Google-hosted jQuery
- Google-hosted Greensock
- Google-hosted CreateJS
Yes, Createjs libraries are now part of both Google double click and adwords!
Hi everyone. I'm having the same issues as above, except that my issue isn't solved when I link to the Google-hosted CreateJS. With the create.js file included, the file size is too big, but when I link to the google-hosted version my HTML file no longer works and comes up blank. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Hi Pixelen, works fine for me with regard to seeing your ad... BTW i've found some browsers don't like sprite sheets FYI. This could be an issue... Did you try running it though the google HMTL validator? Also to save some file size, make your gradient and button in Flash rather than having them as bitmap elements, this will drop your file size considerably.
Hi Joe, oh great - must be that browser's don't display it, though it runs fine when put through Google Adwords as it's linking to hosted js? Good note regarding the spritesheets, I have run the ad through the HTML validator and it said it was fine, but I will keep that in mind for the future.
Is it posible to change default path: https://code.createjs.com/createjs-2015.11.26.min.js
with: https://s0.2mdn.net/ads/studio/cached_libs/createjs_2015.11.26_54e1c3722102182bb133912ad44 42e19_min.js so it will be no need to manually edit html file?
Yes, create your own template.
1. Export default template: FILE > PUBLISH SETTINGS > ADVANCED > EXPORT (EXPORT SELECTED HTML TEMPLATE) and give it your own name e.g. mytemplate.
2. Change your own template: $CREATEJS_LIBRARY_SCRIPTS change in <script src="https://s0.2mdn.net/ads/studio/cached_libs/createjs_2015.11.26_54e1c3722102182bb133912ad44 42e19_min.js "></script>.
3. Import back your own template: FILE > PUBLISH SETTINGS > ADVANCED > IMPORT NEW (SELECT CUSTOM HTML TEMPLATE) and click OK.
4. Additionally save your own temlate for further use : FILE > SAVE AS TEMPLATE.
Additionally if you want you can download my templates: HTML5 Banner Ads Templates
