Free Adobe Animate Courses

Fourteen years ago we started CartoonSmart to teach Adobe Animate (ahem, back then it was called Macromedia Flash), and it’s still one of our favorite courses to teach. Animate offers some of the easiest vector illustration and animation tools in the entire Adobe suite, and this one software can be used for just about anything! To get started, check out our 9 part series covering all the basics of Adobe Animate CC 2018. After that, continue learning with short animation courses on walk cycles, shooting arrows and more!
