This all changed when Steve Jobs refused to allow the Flash player in the iOS Safari browser and at the same time HTML5 introduced the Canvas with an api to allow fast sprite animations. Most developers have moved away from Adobe Flash, but Adobe Flash in its latest incarnation Adobe Animate can output content that is completely HTML5 compliant.

Something that’s great about HTML5 animation is that it’s so much more accessible than Flash was. However, it can be difficult to know where to start. Edge Animate was an Adobe program that allowed it’s users to create interactive animations for web and mobile. Sadly, as of November 2015, it has been discontinued and it’s functions have been absorbed in to Adobe’s Animate CC program. Animate CC still functions perfectly well for creating HTML5 animations, it just can also be used for a lot of other projects. If you don’t have access to Animate CC, Google has created a free alternative, Google Web Designer.
Animate CC is a great program, even though it can be a bit intimidating at first. It’s a lot less intimidating than actually trying to write the code for the animation yourself. To make understanding it a bit easier, here’s a bit of a step-by-step walkthrough explaining how to make a simple animation using the program.
When you first open Animate CC, the first thing you have to do is select File > New > HTML5 Canvas. You can then adjust the size and framerate of the animation to your liking (A higher framerate just means that there will be more individual frames being displayed in a shorter period of time. An animation with a higher framerate will appear smoother than one with a lower framerate. If you don’t have a point of reference for how high or low you want your framerate, the default option should be fine. It can be modified later), and hit OK.
From here, you’ll be provided with your canvas, and you’ll be able to start drawing out your first frame. If this is your first animation, it’s good to start out with something simple like a ball rolling or bouncing so you can start to understand how it works. If you’re more experienced in the animation department, go nuts (and you can also probably skip to the end of this article).

In this panel on the left hand side of the screen, you can edit the size, appearance and position of your shapes.
To add another frame, go to Insert > Timeline > Keyframe. You’ve now made your next frame (another way to achieve this is by right clicking the next frame in the timeline and selecting “insert key frame”). Test my wifi speed. If you’re taking the bouncing/rolling ball approach, just use the cursor tool to grab the ball and move it ever so slightly. Think of this new frame as a “snapshot” of the final animation that you want to achieve, just being taken a second after the first frame. If you are animating a ball falling towards the ground, you should just move it slightly closer to the ground. If you’re working with a higher frame rate, you can get away with making a more extreme jump in between frames. You’ll basically just repeat this process of making a new frame, making a small bit of movement and then creating a new frame again until you’re satisfied with your animation. You might have to go back in and add, remove or change frames, depending on what you want your end product to look like. It might be a long process of trial and error, but you need to have patience. If you want to adjust anything about the original document (such as the framerate or canvas size) you can do this by selecting Modify > Document, or by hitting ctrl + J.
This is what the modify document window looks like.
