Reusable components

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.

Animate CC (formerly Flash Professional)

Assets at your fingertips with Creative Cloud Libraries

Browse and access brushes, colors, graphics, and other creative assets in libraries that are available in Animate and other Creative Cloud apps. Libraries sync to Creative Cloud, and assets can be linked so that when one is changed, you and your team can choose to update it across any projects.

Find the perfect asset in Adobe Stock

The new Adobe Stock marketplace lets you find, license and manage royalty-free images and vector graphics from directly within Animate. Choose from 45 million assets, save your selection to your Creative Cloud Libraries and then drag it into your project to use. You can also license video assets directly from the Adobe Stock marketplace.
