Well… Fed up with Premiere Pro for video editing and unable to use Final Cut as I also need to work with PCs, someone told me to try DaVinci Resolve as it’s Mac/PC/Linux (really!!?) and also IT’S FREE! (there is a Pro version that costs $299, but the standard version is enough for my editing work). So they had their AE-like software called Fusion, but the free version doesn’t exist anymore as they’ve merged it into Resolve 16 (as a workspace). I ditched Premiere Pro and After Effects. Worth a try!
Most of Data Designers use Illustrator to create charts… except that the chart tools in Illustrator haven't been updated for 27 years!!! There's a huge gap in the market for a chart designing tool, that is powerful, up-to-date, and easy to use. I'm fed up with Illustrator for that matter, as you really can't create anything (dynamic) except pie charts, line charts and bar charts… We need flow charts, treepmaps, etc. I know a bunch of designers who'd switch to AfDesigner if there were chart tools included. We don't ask for a Excel replacement, but we need/want a not-stuck-in-the-past vector tool!
A Affinity-like AE software already exists, it's called (Apple) Motion. It costs the same (and it is so powerful for a $40 software!). The plugin for Importing Affinity files is a much better and reasonable idea.
