Creating Broadcast-Ready Animations With Adobe Animate

Greg Araya teaches us how to create TV and broadcast ready animations with Adobe Animate.

Adobe Animate (formerly Flash) is still a widely used tool for animation, especially within the broadcast or TV realm. Many productions choose to use Animate for a variety of reasons; mainly, it’s easy to create pipeline tools for Animate, and it’s a familiar animating environment that feels pretty natural.

Check out this tutorial series from Prof. Greg Araya, who covers many character animation techniques in Adobe Animate. 

Animating for Broadcast.

The tutorial series shows off the exact process he used when animating for TV series at Cartoon Network. “Though not proprietary, it’s an atypical approach in that it does not use or promote any of the newer tools or features in the later versions of the program.” Araya says.

“Appealing character animation can be created entirely within Adobe Animate. This tutorial walks through a process of building and animating a complete scene starting from a blank file. You will learn how the principles of traditional character animation can be executed with the Adobe Animate tool set, and utilize the same best practices employed by professional animators.”
