Cinemagraphs - Basic animation tools needed [Affinity Photo]

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

first off I want to thank you for your great work on Affinity Photo, it is truly a wonderful piece of software.


In order to make it even better I think it would be great to see basic animation/video editing tools added in the near future. I'm speaking about opening video files, trimming, setting keyframes, adding masks, working with video layers, changing opacity etc.


The reason why I'm requesting this the need for a tool to create cinemagraphs. In 2016 we've seen a shift from stills to video when it comes to website design and online marketing and this trend will continue in 2017.


Being able to create small animations will become crucial if Affinity Photo wants keep up with Photoshop.


I hope you will look into it and put it on your roadmap, but again: Great work so far!

Hi Sevencron,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

There's no immediate plans to add animation/video tools to Affinity Photo. We are trying to keep each application focused in just one area which is RAW development and photo editing in Affinity Photo's case.

Please check our FAQ for more info about other applications/tools's possibilities.
