Adobe Illustrator offers you a flexible way to deploy your creative vision to virtually any screen or substrate.
Adobe Animate CC
Adobe Animate - the New Flash!
For nearly two decades, Flash Professional has been the standard for producing rich animations on the web. Because of the emergence of HTML5 and demand for animations that leverage web standards, Adobe have completely rewritten the Flash program to incorporate native HTML5 Canvas and WebGL support. As the premier animation tool for the web for many years, Flash Professional has now been renamed Adobe Animate CC.
Arguably the biggest issue for the previous Flash platform was its reliance on the Flash Player plugin that has not been supported by Apple and mobile devices. Animate CC frees the application from the player by embracing web standards, opening up the whole of the web, including mobile. Adobe Animate has now been recognised as an HTML5 ad solution that complies with the latest Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) standards, and is also widely used in the animation/cartoon industry.
Adobe Animate CC can output animation/interaction projects to virtually any format (including SVG), through its extensible architecture and importantly, Animate will continue to support Flash (SWF) and AIR formats.
Participants in this course will learn skills to build rich content that include images, text, animations, interaction, sound and video.
Adobe Acrobat DC
Acrobat DC is Adobe's tool for creating, viewing, editing, and sharing PDF files. The PDF file format is one of the most widely used and distributed file formats in use today. It's gained such acceptance because it provides a format that can be widely distributed to anyone.
The file will appear as intended on each person's computer. Any user can view a PDF file using the free Adobe Reader application by downloading it from Adobe's website. Using Acrobat DC, you can create a PDF file using any file as a source file whether it be Word, Excel, PowerPoint, InDesign, a webpage, the list goes on and on.
