Why to use Edge Animate

This will be conclusion and my thoughts and reason why I even start messing with Edge Animate. The main reason is because I expect to be easy to use as Adobe is promising and second and most important reason: animations are more effective then still images and there isn't better way to promote something or to draw someone's attention. No one can ignore something that is moving on screen, remember that. I have read about effectiveness of animations but also and tested on myself. I have never, ever missed to see whatever was moving on web page.
