See what's inside

Have you ever wished there was a program where you could just draw stuff and then control it with code? There is! 

Adobe Animate outputs HTML5 canvas documents that run in any web browser (desktop and mobile). You can write JavaScript inside Animate that allows you to manipulate and animate your artwork.

It's great for HTML5 banners, generative art, interactive educational projects, and basic games.

Why is this a not-a-course?

I personally love Animate and think it has huge potential. 

However, before sinking a ton of time into a full-blown course I'm offering these source files to my Creative Coding Club members as a bonus to see what kind of interest there is.

If significant demand grows for training I'll add some videos and some more files.

Features illustrated

  • Adding interactivity
  • Controlling the main timeline
  • Controlling Movie Clips
  • Adding Movie Clips dynamically
  • Generative art
  • Scripted animation with the GreenSock Animation Platform (GSAP 3)

Avoid frustration!

These files are the outcome of easily 20 hours of googling and searching forums for answers when I transferred from AS3 to JavaScript. They contain techniques I use on virtually every project.

I'm confident these files will save you at least a few hours of frustration. 

My hope is that they give you a gentle entry into the wonderful world of creative coding in Adobe Animate and inspire you to learn.

If you learn by exploring, this not-a-course is for you!

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there lessons included to teach me how to use Animate?

Nope. These are just source files. 

What prerequisite knowledge should I have?

You should understand some Animate basics like: creating symbols, working with the timeline, and assigning instance names to Movie Clips. Check out my Skillshare course: Animate CC for Everyone (2 months free) if you need to learn the basics.

This is part of a subscription? I don't want to pay every month!!!

That's cool. You can cancel your subscription immediately after you download the files. However, I encourage you to check out the other great courses you will have access to. Either way you can stay around for as short or as long as you like.

Can I ask you a question before I purchase?

Of course! Just send an email to
