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, we completely rewrote the tool over the past few years to incorporate native HTML5 Canvas and WebGL support. To more accurately represent its position as the premier animation tool for the web and beyond, Flash Professional will be renamed Adobe Animate CC

What’s New in Animate CC (2017):
Integrated virtual camera
Use the built-in V-Cam to pan and zoom in and out on your animations just like you would with a video camera. The V-Cam also lets you add tints and filters.
Now it’s quick and easy to add and reuse common components such as video players, buttons, and carousels to your HTML5 Canvas documents.
Vector brush improvements
Create and share custom brushes, convert pattern brushes to standard art brushes, and get more expressive with better pressure and tilt sensitivity.
Collaboration with CC Libraries
Collaborate simultaneously on animations with multiple team members. Share, modify and reuse entire animations, clips, or symbols via CC Libraries and place animations directly into InDesign and Adobe Muse.
Now it’s simple to share quick prototypes by exporting clips or excerpts as GIFs, JPEGs, or PNGs and sharing them on social media, in instant messages, emails, and texts.
Creative Cloud Assets improvements
Archive and restore all your assets stored in Creative Cloud, including the ones in your Creative Cloud Libraries, assets created with CC desktop products, and mobile projects.
