What is a OAM file?
Each OAM file contains shapes, images, and other content, as well as a timeline for playing the animation the file contains. Users can create OAM files by publishing from an Edge Animate project (.AN file). Users can also export OAM files from Adobe Animate, Adobe Flash, and other animation applications.
To create an OAM file in Edge Animate, follow these steps:
- Select File → Publish Settings....
- Check the box next to Animate Deployment Package and choose your output options and location.
- Select File → Publish and then navigate to the folder you chose in the Publish Settings dialog to retrieve your OAM file.
NOTE: As of November 2015, Edge Animate is no longer being actively developed.
How to open a OAM file
You can add OAM files as animated widgets in Adobe InDesign, Dreamweaver, and other Adobe applications (Windows, Mac). For example, to insert an OAM file into a Dreamweaver project, select Window → Insert from the program's menu bar. Then, in the Insert window, select Animated Composition. Finally, navigate to and open your OAM file.
