Hi Guys,



I wanted to learn motion graphics but I honestly can't afford to buy both After Effects and Illustrator.


After there any motion graphics designers who can share their workflow to me? How do you guys manage to use Affinity Designer and After Effects?

Well it's a tough thing to answer since it is more of a concern about Adobe being compatible with the right formats and not Affinity. After Effects supports it's own vector formats, Illustrator files, as you mentioned, but not Affinity files. I would say to export your Affinity files to SVG, but it's silly that After Effects doesn't even support that. I'm afraid that whatever you choose to convert them to, they will have to be pixel based.


Would you maybe consider an alternative to After Effects that still supports vector graphics and motion? I still have to research more into it because I can't find what file types it supports, but Motion Artist looks very neat and professional. Does it support SVG? Not sure.

The website is still a work in progress. The "Comics" and "Shop" sections are not yet ready. Feel free to connect with me and let me know what you like or what can be improved. You can contact me here, on my contact page, YouTube channel, or Twitter account. Thanks and have a great day!
