Adobe Animate (Flash Professional) was the standard for producing rich animations on the web. Due to the rise of HTML5 and the demand for animations that leverage web standards, we have completely rewritten the tool over the past few years to include native HTML5 Canvas and WebGL support. To more accurately represent the position as the most important animation tool for the Internet and beyond, Flash Professional will be renamed Adobe Animate. Animate will continue to support Flash (SWF) and AIR formats as first-class citizens. In addition, it can broadcast animations to virtually any format (including SVG) through the extensible architecture.

Vector Art Brushes: Change the path of a stroke after it is drawn, and scale it to any resolution without losing quality. You can also create custom brushes and import brushes created with Adobe Capture CC.
360 ° swivel cloth: rotate the cloth at any pivot point as you draw to get the perfect angle and strokes. You can even use this feature with a Wacom Cintiq!
Enhanced pencils and brushes: Draw smooth, precise vector borders along a curve and get faster live previews.
Easier audio synchronization: Control audio loop directly on the timeline, without coding.
Faster color change: Naming highlighted colors lets you change one color and automatically update your entire project.
