Adobe made an announcement. Now there are no more excuses. It’s time to switch from Photoshop to Affinity Photo.

Is there any reason why this was created as a video? It seems to just consist of a talking torso. Would it not have been simpler to just provide the content as text. It would certainly be more convenient to read and absorb.

I'm not convinced that being able to do 3D work is all that stops many people from moving from Adobe! It wouldn't surprise me if they come out with a dedicated 3D app, rather than incorporating it in Photoshop.

Probably because he has a YouTube channel as his distribution mechanism.

Adobe has several dedicated products for 3D work, retiring the in my opinion shabby solutions within Photoshop seems logical.

@Digitally Fearless
There is an excuse ;) why should I use a program which doesn´t have certain features I might need?
What benefits does Affinity give me? The User who stumbles upon your clip is going to ask that.
Can you show something which helps the probably highly disgruntled users of Photoshop to visually understand what the best is in the current situation?

For the Video itself, It would have helped if you had gone into detail which features are removed and showing a screenshot of a news-article and explaining what it means.
What alternatives are there and why Affinity Photo is a good fit?
Saying that features from the competition got removed and now you can use Affinity Photo due to feature parity is sadly not a good advert nor convincing.

Going into soft clickbait/speculation mode in a youtube clip can also help, saying to potential sidegraders, that Serif teased a 3D painting solution which might come (be vague there - until its in a beta which you can show) might also help in understanding that Serif might cater to the users which are stranded in nowhere.

Have you seen something from Serif that I missed? I haven't seen any mention of 3D, and unless I missed it I would have to doubt they're working on it.

Sure :), its from 2020 and previewing a texturing/previewing method for 3D Assets within Affinity Photo.
That would have spiced up the video.
