What software is the easiest to create an animated card that can be send out via email?
Christmas tree with presents
click on present
out pops a message
I want to send it out via mass email and post in social media [if possible]
i don't know what would be easiest because that depends on your knowledge base and, even if you know nothing about any adobe apps or issues related to your goal, that would be hard to answer.
but, i think, the easiest animation to do what you want would be an animated gif. you can check the adobe apps to see which can create animated gifs, but my guess is that adobe animate would be the easiest if you're starting with nothing (eg, no video to convert).
Thank you for the input, it does help!
and @Nancy OShea is correct. if you want interactivity (a response to a click), an animated gif/video isn't going to work and it will be more complex to embed in an email than an animated gif/video.
i would suggest either no interactivity or a link in an email to an html page that has interactivity.
Owing to the limitations of email and social media platforms in general, the best you can do is attach an animated GIF or video. To make it interactive however, the platform that it is viewed on would need to support scripting actions. That's not possible unless you use a platform specific widget of some kind.
Adobe Spark is a good tool for creating Spark Pages (online newsletters), Spark Posts with animated Gif (for social media) or Spark Videos. See below.
Hope that helps.
Thank you, at least it gives me a better insight in what's involved.
