Adobe Flash Professional is Now Adobe Animate CC
Interactive designers and animators have used Flash Professional for years to produce some of the most engaging content on the web. With the emergence of new technologies and the shift to web standards, Adobe has retooled Flash and created something truly special. With so much of the world’s content now using HTML5 Adobe has updated the tool to now incorporate native HTML5 Canvas and WebGL support. With the enhancements to the already robust software Adobe has renamed the product: Flash Professional is now Adobe Animate CC. The change from Flash Professional to Animate CC represents the renaissance of a powerful tool to something truly revolutionary.

With the evolution from Flash Professional to Animate CC, the Adobe Certified Associate certification is also changing. The Adobe Animate CC exam incorporates the updates and enhancements found in the new software. The Animate CC exam validates an individual’s skills using the premier animation tool. The ACA Animate CC exam proves a student has the skills necessary to create dynamic and engaging content required for a career in animation and design.

ACA Animate CC certification is available for Creative Cloud (CC) version of Adobe software. CC-based ACA certifications are current for three years after the date of issue.
