What is an AN file?

Project file created by Adobe Edge Animate, a program used for making animated webpage content; contains a multitrack timeline for animating webpage elements; incorporates jQuery (a JavaScript library) for enabling animations; can be used as an alternative to creating webpages with Flash.

More Information

When saving a project in Edge Animate, you actually save an .HTML file. After choosing to save, Edge Animate creates a folder containing the .HTML file. However, it also creates the AN project file and associated .CSS and .JS files required for the animation.

AN files can be used to create .ANTMPL template files:

Select File → Save As Template..., name your file, select the save location, and click Save.

Adobe Edge, the predecessor to Edge Animate, uses the .EDGE extension. This extension can be used interchangeably with the ".an" extension. However, the ".an" extension is now the default.

NOTE: As of November 2015, Edge Animate is no longer being actively developed.
