Adobe Unveils Adobe Animate CC – Updates Muse and Bridge CC

Posted by at 10:44 am on February 10, 2016

Adobe announced that three of its web and image management programs had all received significant updates: Animate — formerly known as Flash Professional, but now more of an HTML5 design program — has been bumped up to Animate CC, a full member of the Creative Cloud family of apps, with many new changes. The company’s Muse CC has also been updated to incorporate “responsive design” capabilities, and Bridge CC picks up photo downloader support under 10.11.x (El Capitan), automated cache management, and the ability to auto-stack panoramic and HDR images.

Animate CC now features Creative Cloud Libraries; Adobe Stock integation; enhanced onion skinning; video export to multiple resolutions; the ability to import SVG files; stage rotating, and proportional content scaling to stage size; Projector support; tagged Swatches; a new Brush Library panel; new vector art brushes, and improvements to pencil and art brushes; and enhanced drawing objects bounding boxes.


In addition, the update makes notable changes to enhance HTML5 Canvas documents, including custom templates, TypeKit support, the ability to publish text as outlines, and OAM publishing support for AS3, WebGL, and HTML5 Canvas documents, along with various related improvements. The updated program will be available for Creative Cloud subscribers as part of the full suite. Adobe Muse also gains support for Creative Cloud Libraries and Adobe Stock integration alongside its new “responsive layout” feature.


The new update to Adobe Bridge CC adds automated cache management, including improvements in purging cache capability to allow automatic purging of stale cache items when the application is idle. Also new is a cache compaction option, which the company says will “set up cache clean-up at exit in case the database size increases beyond a certain size. Both these options improve performance of the application and help keep the cache and database clean over extended periods.”

In addition, the updated Bridge CC features on-demand thumbnail generation when users scroll up or down, or when the application is idle. Metadata extraction “happens on priority for all assets, thereby enabling the filter panel and search to become functional sooner,” according to a blog post on the changes. Finally, Bridge CC will now be able to import from iOS devices under OS X 10.11.x (El Capitan). The program will now launch Apple’s Image Capture to handle the importing process. The Autostack Panorama/HDR feature has also been reinstated in this release.
