I just download Animate CC, I was using Edge Animate until I realized its no longer avaliable, so I started with Animate, but now im seeing that its quite the same thing as Flash, not online inside the program but the tutorials here on Adobe Website about Animate show Flash Interface. So please let me know if animate and flash are exactly the same program with a different name and the capacity to export to new display technology.
Edge Animate still works though, doesn't it?
I didn't even know that Flash wasn't available anymore, I started to panic cause I need to use it for uni, the fact they only really changed the name and some of the features was not really obvious, but nice. I find it easier to use now. Except the run-away brush strokes.... lol In other-words yes its practically the same program.
They're constantly trying to improve brush strokes and other art related things. Make sure to stay up to date for the latest fixes.
