next product

As far as I know, the announced "next" product is Affinity Publisher for iPad.

And support for animation and video applications has been repeatedly questioned.


Affinity Photo 1.7.1.404, Affinity Designer 1.7.1.404, Affinity Publisher 1.7.1.404. Affinity Store.
Windows 10 Pro, Version 1903, Build 18362.145.
Latitude E5570, i5-6440HQ 2.60 GHz, 8 GB, Intel HD Graphics 530, 1920 x 1080.

After Publisher for iPad they may have time to finish their DAM...

Dear Serif,

Affinity Suite arguably needs a Digital Assets Manager. With Studio Link is this on your radar? I would think something along the lines of Adobe Bridge? 

Personally, closer integration with Phase One's Capture One Pro would be welcome. Round Trip from Capture One Pro would be very welcome. 

Other notable ideas would be a Video App. Affinity Film or Affinity Director or Affinity Splice are some ideas I am offering for the title. 

Another would be a Lightroom competitor, from the comments seen on the Affinity Live Event that launched Affinity Publisher. 

Since my Stills Photography needs are met by Capture One for RAW Development, and Retouching by Affinity Photo, I would like to see a Video Editing App from Serif. 
I can't stand Adobe, their Creative Cloud software rental model, or their nightmarishly illogical software design.

I find Affinity much more approachable. Congrats!

Video editing + After Effects-like solution, high end, top quality, sweet and cool, non subscription, permanent purchase :

Another one (quite easy to learn ) :

Assets browser (is not Bridge, but with a bit of flexibility, a nice assets browser )

https://www.xnview.com

There are dozens of threads where staff has said Serif is not doing any time soon a video editor (neither animation solutions). The DAM is in the plans, but seems not in immediate plans, due to other urgent priorities.


Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo licenses, Windows 7, i7  860 (2009) 2.8 GHz,  8 GB RAM, GTX 1050 2 GB, HD 7200 RPM.  Wacom Intuos 4 XL.

There is a comment from a Serif employee somewhere on the forums that he was basically sitting right next to the people working on the DAM.  It is happening, whatever it turns out to be, but no word on how long it might take.  Guessing it might be a while.

I couldn't help to look this up (search term 'DAM sitting late' searching everywhere brings up only one result):

I remembered the 'late' part of @MattP's post ;-)
