Affinity designer -> After effects vectors

Recommended Posts

The people of School of motion are a big fan of affinity and today they posted this very detailed and wonderful tutorial on how to export from Affinity Designer® to Adobe® After Effects@. 

It may seem a little bit cumbersome, but I think it's worth it...specially if you try to avoid illustrator. The link: https://www.schoolofmotion.com/blog/save-affinity-designer-vector-files-after-effects


Have a nice one!

Trust me, is not worth it.

It's barely acceptable if you are dealing with some vector to a minimal degree, but in a production situation that's just not an option.

Plus, converting to vector in AE?? No, thanks, I only use that if I don't have other options, not to mention the hassle to go through all the layers that need to be converted.


The only other alternative is using native vector files exported from AD.

I tried this route here:

and here:

Not an option either.

So, long story short, AD to AE is not doable when it comes to a serious production (i.e., working in a team or individual work that relies on many vector files).

It only works if you really have a lot of time/patience (and I would add money).
