Hello, I moved this post to the GSAP banner animation and ads forum since that is the appropriate forum to be in for this post topic :)

Yeah, Facebook doesn't do anything with HTML5 ads, but you can use video. Animate CC does a great job of exporting scripted GSAP animations as video without dropping any frames.

Correction: If you use GSAP and AS3 scripting then you get great video exports from Animate CC. It doesn't appear that video export works for scripted animations with canvas / javascript.

AS3 > MP4 does a great job - no interactivity of course but for hiRes with lots of items animating concurrently it works better than the SWF.

Shame it doesn't work with canvas but I've found that it doesn't take much to convert JS to AS3 and export from the FLA anyway.
