Adobe Edge: Dreamweaver meets Flash meets your wallet

by Thomas Brady

The “Flash versus HTML 5” argument drew a lot of cries of “Adobe! Please just add and ‘export-to-html-5’ feature to Flash and end this!”

Well, did you really expect that? There’s a way now to import Photoshop and Illustrator content right into Flash, but it’s not a new feature of any of those three programs. It’s a fourth program called Catalyst, that comes with its own price tag, of course. Same deal here.

Adobe Edge. It’s the timeline animation tools from Flash, with the code/design views and HTML editor from Dreamweaver.

This could be big. If it doesn’t suck.

By the way, this presentation (there’s a video at the link) breaks down BIG time at the demo stage, around 4 minutes in.
