Adobe Edge Animate & Tumult Hype animations

Adobe Edge Animate & Tumult Hype animations

HTML5 animations can be created with several tools, like:

Twixl Publisher has direct support for the .oam file format used by Edge Animate (and which Tumult Hype can also export to). These .oam package files can be added to InDesign via simple drag 'n' drop, and InDesign will then also display a preview of the animation.


If you are including an Edge animation as an embedded web viewer, then the option "Host runtime files on Adobe CDN" needs to be unchecked.


  • Always create responsive projects or create your animation with the desired width and height (as it will be used in InDesign).
  • We strongly advise you to use a .html export together with a Web Viewer or Web Overlay Button. It's less unpredictable and what's even better: You can test your animation easily by testing it in every browser (desktop, iOS, Android).

iBooks Author widgets


Apple dropped support for iAd Producer and this tool has been removed from the downloads-section in the Apple Developer Portal.

Apple offers a tool called iAD producer that can be used to create HTML-based widgets for use in iBooks Author.

These widgets (with extension .wdgt) can be integrated as an embedded Web Viewer - just create the web viewer, and select the .wdgt file that you place in the WebResources folder..
