Hi there, 

 

After putting a couple of hours into learning Adobe Animate I am now pretty sure that it will not be able to create what I want.  

 

I am trying to create an interactive instilation accross four screens. A selection is made on screen #1 (refer to the below image) which will play a video on the other three screens.  Can Adobe Animate work on four screens?

Not intrinsically, no. But, assuming all screens are being controlled by a single PC, what you can do is write some custom JavaScript in your master Animate file that  opens child browser windows for each monitor (that you'd have to manually position and set fullscreen during setup). Then the master Animate page could use postMessage() to communicate video play requests to the child pages. If literally all the child pages are doing is playing fullscreen videos, you wouldn't even need Animate for them; a simple custom script could handle that.
