What's New in Animate Creative Cloud
Pressure and Tilt support in Eraser tool
Pressure and Tilt options are added to Eraser tool to enhance drawing options. You can now erase with same size and precision like the Brush tool, by using the new Pressure and Tilt sensitive eraser nib.
Paint Bucket tool enhancement
Paint Bucket tool can now be used in continuous fill mode. The tool does live filling on the regions/contours as you drag over the shapes. You can choose to fill all the regions as you drag or, only have empty regions and specific color regions filled:
When Fill all regions checkbox is selected - Fill color is applied over all the contours/regions that you drag over.
When Fill all regions checkbox is unselected - Fill color is applied over empty regions or, wherever the starting color is found.
This drag fill option allows easier and faster mechanism of coloring into shapes drawn using the brush tool.
SVG Export enhancement
SVG files exported from Animate are now well organized and maintain layer hierarchy. These exported files can be imported in Character Animator for further use.
In this release of Animate, you will find references to Adobe Fonts, which is the new name of Typekit. Adobe Fonts is included in Creative Cloud subscriptions. There are no limits on the number of fonts that can be activated at the same time and no limits on the number of monthly pageviews for web fonts.
