Vector animation with enhancements from you

animate

Adobe Animate CC offers a JavaScript API (JSAPI) to script actions in the Animate UI, and the Custom Platform Support Development Kit (CPSDK) to extend the power of Animate to new platforms. With these tools, you can build extensions that make Animate do what you want: provide custom tools to supercharge the creative process, automate workflows, and more. 

Working in JavaScript and C++ using Adobe’s Eclipse Toolkit and your favorite C++ IDE, you can build scripts and plug-ins and package them for distribution as extensions. Your extensions can be given away or sold in the Adobe Exchange marketplace where users can browse and install extensions. Discover the potential for enhancing and extending the capabilities of Adobe Animate.

Dragos Dascalita explores the idea of annotating libraries to make them directly deployable in serverless environments.
Last year, the Creative Cloud Partner Ecosystem team visited some of you at Creative Pro Week in Atlanta, at our Partner Day in Munich, and throughout Adobe MAX at our booth and partner happy hour…
Why going serverless is the way to go for event driven applications.
