Adobe Animate

Adobe Animate is a multimedia authoring and computer animation program developed by Adobe Systems. Animate is used to design vector graphics and animation for television programs, online video, web applications, rich internet applications, video games; the program offers support for raster graphics, rich text and video embedding, ActionScript scripting. Animations may be published for HTML5, WebGL, Scalable Vector Graphics animation and spritesheets, legacy Flash Player and Adobe AIR formats, it was first released in 1996 as FutureSplash Animator, renamed Macromedia Flash upon its acquisition by Macromedia. It was created to serve as the main authoring environment for the Adobe Flash platform, vector-based software for creating animated and interactive content, it was renamed Adobe Animate in 2015 to more reflect its market position since over a third of all content created in Animate uses HTML5. The first version of Adobe Flash/Adobe Animate was FutureSplash Animator, a vector graphics and vector animations program released in May 1996.

FutureSplash Animator was developed by FutureWave Software, a small software company whose first product, SmartSketch, was a vector-based drawing program for pen-based computers. With the implosion of the pen-oriented operated systems, it was ported to Microsoft Windows as well as Apple Inc.'s Classic Mac OS. In 1995, the company decided to add animation abilities to their product and to create a vector-based animation platform for World Wide Web; the FutureSplash animation technology was used on websites such as MSN, The Simpsons website and Disney Daily Blast of The Walt Disney Company. In December 1996, Macromedia bought FutureWave and rebranded the product as Macromedia Flash, a brand name that continued for 8 major versions. Adobe Systems acquired Macromedia in 2005, re-branded the product Adobe Flash Professional to distinguish from the player, Adobe Flash Player, it was included as part of the Creative Suite of products from CS3 to CS6, until Adobe phased out the Creative Suite lineup in favor of Creative Cloud.

On December 1, 2015, Adobe announced that the program would be renamed Adobe Animate on its next major update. The move comes as part of an effort to disassociate the program from Adobe Flash Player, acknowledging its increased use for authoring HTML5 and video content, an effort to begin discouraging the use of Flash Player in favor of web standards-based solutions; the first version under the new name was released February 8, 2016. Although Adobe Animate is moving towards web-standard file formats and Air formats are still supported.

SV Eintracht Trier 05

SV Eintracht Trier 05 is a German association football club based in Trier, Rhineland-Palatinate. It was formed on 11 March 1948 out of the merger of Westmark 05 Trier and Eintracht Trier 06, on the 43rd anniversary of the establishment of predecessor Trier Fußball Club 05; the team badge incorporates Trier's most famous landmark, the Porta Nigra, an ancient Roman city gate still standing in Germany's oldest city. Trier FC was established 11 March 1905 and in 1911 was renamed Sport-Verein 05 Trier. In 1930, 05, Fußballverein Kürenz, Polizei SV Trier were joined to form SV Westmark 05 Trier; the origins of Eintracht Trier are in the 1906 establishment of Fußball Club Moselland 06 Trier. In 1920, the club joined with FV Fortuna 1910 Trier to create Vereinigte Rasenspieler 1906 Trier, which the following year merged with SV Alemannia 1909 Trier to form SV Eintracht 06 Trier. Westmark and Eintracht played first in the Bezirksliga Rhein-Saar and in the Gauliga Mittelrhein, one of 16 top-flight divisions formed through the 1933 re-organization of German football under the Third Reich.

Westmark appeared in the opening rounds of the Tschammerpokal, predecessor of today's DFB-Pokal in 1936, advancing past FV Saarbrücken, before being put out in the next round by VfB Stuttgart. Both Trier teams were relegated in 1936 and did not re-appear in the top-flight until 1941 when they were both promoted to the Gauliga Moselland, Gruppe West. Westmark was relegated at the end of the season, however Eintracht fared better, lasting a further two seasons before being sent down. Player shortage during World War II forced the mergers of many clubs into combined wartime clubs known as Kriegspielgemeinshaft, in 1943, the two clubs were joined as KSG Eintracht/Westmark Trier; the team won only a single point in 11 matches, conceding 52 goals and scoring just 13. By 1944, the region was affected by the war and matches of the Gauliga Moselland were suspended; the two clubs re-emerged as separate sides after the conflict but joined to one club on 11 March 1948 as SV Eintracht Trier 05. The newly combined side resumed playing in the top-flight Oberliga Südwest, but were never a serious contender at that level finishing well behind the leaders.

By the time the Bundesliga, the new nationwide professional football league, was formed in 1963, the club played in the second division. They continued to play tier II football in the Regionalliga Südwest until slipping to the Amateurliga Rheinland in 1973. Eintracht's second team amateur side had made an appearance in the Amateurliga for a single season in 1970–71; the senior side performed well in the Amateurliga after their descent, but failed in a bid to advance at the end of the 1975–76 season after winning their division and finishing second in the relegation play-off group. The following year, Trier again captured the Amateurliga title, but this time were successful in their bid to move up to the 2. Bundesliga Süd. However, they were in 17th place at the end of the 1976 -- 77 campaign; the club avoided relegation only because Röchling Völklingen, who had finished above Eintracht, were denied a license for financial reasons. Trier was able to turn their narrow escape into a five-year stay in the second division.

In 1981, the Nord and Süd divisions of the 2. Bundesliga were combined, the number of teams playing tier II football reduced from 42 to 20. Trier missed the cut with an 8th-place finish and found themselves playing in the Amateuroberliga Südwest; the club went on to perform well through the next decade and on into the mid-1990s, earning a string of top three finishes which included Amateurliga titles in 1986, 1993, 1994 and consecutive German Amateur Championships in 1988 and 1989. They enjoyed an extended run in the 1998 DFB-Pokal tournament, advancing to the semi-finals before being put out by MSV Duisburg in a match that ended in a 1–1 draw before being decided 9–10 on penalty kicks. However, the team failed in four opportunities to win its way back to second division play and remained a mid-table side in the Regionalliga West/Südwest and Regionalliga West for most of the 1990s and on into the new millennium. From 2002 to 2005, the club enjoyed a three-season spell in the 2. Bundesliga, earning their highest finish with a 7th-place result in 2003.

The decline of the club began with relegation to the Regionalliga in 2005. Club manager Paul Linz was replaced by former Trier Captain Micheal Prus; the start of the Regionalliga season was disappointing and led to replacement of the former manager with Eugen Hach in October 2005, which however failed to stop the decline. The team was again started the 2006 -- 07 season in the Oberliga Südwest; the aim of the club was promotion straight back to the Regionalliga and the men in charge of this challenge were Adnan Kevric and Roland Seitz. However, Seitz left to take over at SC Paderborn within just a few days of his appointment. Kevric was to see out the rest of the season with the team before resigning his position on 3 March 2007 after a 2–0 home defeat at the hands of FV Engers 07 which ended all hopes for promotion. Herbert Herres took over as head coach, but he in turn resigned as manager on 3 April 2007 following a 3–1 defeat against SpVgg EGC Wirges. Former player Werner Kartz took over until the end of the season.

Under Kartz the team was able to lift itself once again and managed to win the Rhineland Cup after a 2–1 victory over TuS on 7 June 2007, leading to qualification to the opening round of the DFB-Pokal. On 5 August 2007, Trier met FC Schalke 04 at the sold out Moselstadion with tickets for this event changing hands on eBay for over 60 euros per ticket. Trie
