i'm not very knowledgeable about edge, but i am familiar with flash/adobe animate pro.
animating with flash can take less than 1 minute (eg, to animate a rectangle moving across the stage) and can take much longer to animate a character walking/talking.
what kind of animation are you trying to do?
Animation is not that hard in Animate but it does take a bit to get used to the core features...
Here's some great tutorials on how to use it's older brother Flash (which became Animate)
In a shameless plug, you could also tune in to http://www.Twitch.tv/adobe and watch me use Animate live every Saturday at 12pm to 3pm PST. You can even ask questions via the chat window.
Here's past episodes as well...
