HTML5 Banners

Imagine this scenario: Flash is definetely dead and it has been replaced by HTML5. I do not support this statement at all, but it could be.

So: What happens in that case with display Ads?

One the big advantages of Flash is that it is a program which can be used by many differente profiles, such as designers, animators and developers. In my work I give support to more than 50 creative agencies to make RichMedia Ads, the more of them are made with Flash. In my opinion all conventional banners are made by designers, and about the 50% of RichMedia Ads also, the rest need more developer/animation skills.

So, if the previous statement happens: What would creative agencies do?
To answer this we should go to the past. We must know that Flash was first a program for designers and animators, then, Flash progressed a lot, so many programmers also began to use it. And also many designers using Flash like me migrated and converted into designers-developers, what they called devigners.

But, to be honest, I don´t see these people moving to html5. Why? Because by now there´s not a wysiwyg program for html5, or is there?

Well, there´s a company called AdVine, Sprout, making something about this. This is called Sproutinc, the idea is this:


let´s see a video:


You can find more info about them in their website or in their blog
Also, Adobe has a word to say about this, as you can check in Adobe Labs 
Also you can have a look at their video channel on youtube


I see this more advanced than Adobe Edge
