    • it's free and open-source software,very good for work. Guest • Mar 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • The primary application of Animate/Flash is web. Synfig uses vector graphics, but is for bitmap exporting (movies) which can't be easily transferred by web like Canvas/HTML5/JS, except you have a powerful hosting and bandwidth to share users with huge and CPU-demanding videos. Total lack of interactivity in animations is another problem. Guest • May 2017 Disagree   Agree

    • Their website plainly states they are not an alternative to Flash Guest • Oct 2015 Disagree   Agree
    • It has mostly all the essential Flash features for animation and it doesn't cut corners for anything. Its an overall good program to use. I have seen many amazing Flash level animations made with this program and it can still be used for simple low quality animations. It can also be used for teaching students.

Great app

about Adobe Animate CC · ·

There is endless amounts of things you can do with this great app, dynamic webpages, making games, or creating animated ad's for sites. If you know how to use this application, you can land a lot of good paying jobs. I like it because the vector design interface is the best around.
