Adobe Renames Flash

November 30, 2015—Adobe announced that they were renaming Flash Professional to Adobe Animate CC.  This next iteration of Flash will be released in early 2016 and it will put greater emphasis on HTML5 rather than Flash. Animate CC will continue to support Flash (SWF) and AIR files.

The name change serves to underline the key changes Adobe wants to implement in its web animation app, most notably in the expansion of its output capabilities. Animate CC supports multiple platforms namely, HTML5 Canvas, WebGL, and custom platforms (such as SVG) via extensions. Ultra HD (4K) and Hi-DPI outputs are now also within the software repertoire.
