Adobe Edge Animate is not useful for making a complete web page. But it is very interesting for specific projects such as to make banners or animations that need to be compatible with any device. This software is so efficient that it allows making a composition in pixels or in percentage. This last option is essential for a well presented website.
Of course, the options of java scrip are too many and you can not use them all.
If you are a beginner it can be too hard for people not familiar with these programs.
Some people criticize the software because its animations are basic, they can be done with several online tools that are free and simple. Others complain about the limitations of the program in that it does not have gradient fills, textures, brush outline, graduated transparency or blending modes. If you are looking to develop a serious art work, it will have to be in another Adobe program, and then pass it to Edge.
If I recommend the tool because it is very easy for me to use, the requirements I use have been very practical and my clients have been very satisfied with the work.
When doing the animations I think they are excellent, very sharp and of high quality in their presentations.
The photographs can be easily fit into the work you do and the arrangement of the figures for the animations are very good. I recommend it for the specific arts that you are going to make.
