Adding an Adobe Edge animation

I'm new to Concrete5 and it's CMS. I want to add a pre-existing animation at the top of my pages which was done in adobe edge. Is this possible, and if so how? If not, is their a good alternative plugin available?

hi robot242,

Adobe Edge Animate animations can be added by hard coding them into the page theme directly. Adding animations through the concrete5 interface would require making a block.

I have plans on making a block like this at some point.

Other HTML5 animation tools like Tumult Hype and Hippo Animator would also require hard coding or a block.

Hi Mr Dilkington!

Any more thoughts on creating the Edge Animate block, or was it more difficult than you thought it would be?

I notice a general lack of background video /animation possibilities in C5 compared to some Wordpress Themes (see for example Elegant Themes - DIvi) I think having such blocks - or at least clear instructions on how to include these assets - would really kick-start C5...

But then again I could be grossly underestimating the difficulty - or overrating the effect of theses elements....

Thanks for any thoughts

I have thought about this.

As I've learned more about concrete5 and programming in general, I've come up with more potential approaches.

The biggest challenge was how to manage all the assets and providing the asset paths to the animation script. I thought that maybe they could all be put into a fileset, but I am unsure.

By default, the asset paths are defined by type in the animation script. You can have multiple images in a fileset, but they won't have the same path.
