Rain is an agency that has been doing the some of the most advanced creative work with Adobe Edge since even before the first preview was made public. They were added to our Customer Advisory Board just a month or so before Preview 1 was released, but when Dave Nibley showed us the first animation he did with Edge, which you can see here, we were blown away. It was beautiful, had a naturalness to the motion, and just seemed so smooth and refined that for us it set a new bar as to what our baby could do. A few days later, during a visit to our offices he built another one right in front of us that was even better!
Recently, Dave and others at Rain were working on a game for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad called “The Adventures of Timmy: Run Kitty Run” and decided to use Edge for the “cut” scenes that take place between the levels of play. The results are phenomenal. The game is only $.99 on the iTunes App Store, so I would definitely recommend picking it up.
However, no purchase is required to learn more about what they did and how they did it. Rain has kindly put up a site, also built with Edge, that shows you the production process, how they used Edge and other Adobe tools, and the finished results. I would definitely recommend checking it out here. If you’re coming to MAX, please consider attending one of Dave Nibley’s sessions. It’s guaranteed to be a great source of inspiration and knowledge from someone who really knows how to do incredible stuff with Edge!
