PixiAnimate Extension

Creates a custom FLA document which support publishing to PixiJS natively in Adobe Animate CC (formerly Flash CC 2015).

Examples

See examples for sample FLA document to test features of PixiAnimate.

Dependencies

The following dependencies are required in order to publishing FLA document created with this Plugin.

  • Adobe Flash CC 2015+ or Adobe Animate CC
  • Mac OS X or Windows x64
  • Node & NPM
  • Electron npm install -g electron

Installation

If you are trying to install with Adobe Animate CC 2015, you cannot install the ZXP with Adobe Extension Manager CC (this not longer is supported in CC 2015). There are two ways to install:

Building

To get setup, please follow the instructions outlined from Adobe's documentation. This will enable you to build the project itself and see the plugin exposed from Adobe Animate CC.

  • Some project / file names may be changed due to not wanting to produce a plugin named "SamplePlugin".
  • The certificate password is: password

CEP Debug Mode

To setup your platform for development, you must enable debugging in your Adobe preferences for CEP. VERY Important to reboot your machine after making this change or it will not take effect.

Windows

Go to Registry, regedit > HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Adobe/CSXS.6, then add a new entry PlayerDebugMode of type "string" with the value of "1".

OS X

Add the entry PlayerDebugMode of type "string" with value set to 1 in the plist file /Users/<username>/Library/Preferences/com.adobe.CSXS.6.plist

Mac OS X Instructions

To build and install to Animate CC directly, run the script. This will copy the plugin and then install in the CEP extension's folder (/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CEP/extensions/com.jibo.PixiAnimate/)

gulp --install

To build the extension in debug mode and allow for remote debugging, run this command. Navigate to http://localhost:8008 to get the DevTools for the Publish Settings dialog.

gulp --debug --install

To rebuild the C++ code on the current platform, use the --plugin flag. This will build the plugin for both debug and release.

gulp --debug --install --plugin

Or to ONLY build the plugin without building the rest of the extension.

For release:

gulp plugin

Windows Instructions

  • Adobe Animate CC 2015 x64 w/ ZXP utility for Windows
