Taking the Resize Lesson

With the Resize lesson, you can create an animation that is responsive to the size of the screen. For example, when you resize your browser window, the composition resizes too. You can make the Stage and individual elements responsive to the screen size by changing their units from pixels (fixed) to percentage (adjustable). In addition, you can change the relative change position to any corner of an element. Instead of testing changes to your composition in your browser, you can quickly check them on the Stage in Edge Animate.
