Quite honestly, I don't want to see AD being 'bent' into any of that direction. Keep it what it is and make that (more than) good. I left behind Xara Designer (with a sigh) when they added more and more non vector related features. 

 

Everyone's mileage may vary....

At least Serif needs to give plug-ins for that. I'm an Illustrator and Animator.

Hi @Fatih19,

 

as I said, there are many different users with different expectations. Just like you and me.

 

I consider especially this section of the forum as a 'worldwide congress of exchange of ideas' :)

But we'll have to wait and see what Serif is going to make out of it.

 

All the best,

d.

As someone who uses the timeline in PS occasionally, I'd definitely love for this to be added to Affinity Photo, especially on the iPad.

I Agree, this would be a very welcome feature. It would not even have to do everything other animation tools can. Just tracking a few things in key frames would be a great addition, like Position, Scale, Rotation and opacity would be enough for a lot of simple animations. You don't need to track every point in a curve object, if you just track the objects or groups properties it would be enough.

If it needs to be a separate product I would be more than happy to pay for it. I've tried Synfig and Open toonz but they do not import the drawings from Affinity Designer correctly. Even if I try to copy the drawing to inkscape and then export it, the tools can not handle gradients correctly. Maybe After effects of Toon boom would correctly import the drawings but they are just to expensive for the tasks I need them for.
