    I used EPS format, which I imported to After Effects, then converted it into shape layers. Then I used explode shape layers (script available from AEScripts) to break everything into individual shape layers. From there I merged various shape layers together (again using the explode shape layers script) so that I could cut down on the number of layers I needed to worry about.

    From there, it was just a matter of animating everything. This method works well with complicated animations as well- I have a short snippet of a more complex below:

    Whilst it is a bit more work than using illustrator, I don't think it's too much extra work. I've found that preparing files for animation with After Effects always requires some preparation anyway, so 5 more minutes of work isn't too much of a hassle, especially if I can get away from paying 30 bucks a month on another Adobe license.




  2. Hi guys, 


    I wanted to show some work I made using Affinity Designer and After Effects. When I started learning how to animate, it was hard to find info on how to make designs in Affinity Designer and animate them with After Effects.

    After some experimentation, I figured a decent workflow. As you can see, I'm not limited by the lack of integration between the two software suites. If you have any questions, I'd be happy to help.
