New app that competes with After Effects and Premire

Recommended Posts

HI, I'm new.  This might have already been covered in a different thread.  If so, I apologize.  I love the Affinity apps/programs.  It would be extremely beneficial for Affinity to create a visual effects and non-linear video editing app/program.  There is a lot of crossover between PS and AE as far as capabilities goes.  The main difference is one deals with still pictures, the other deals with a series of still pictures (video).  I see no reason why Affinity Photo and whatever app gets created to fill this need shouldn't be the same.  A lot of 3rd party add ons are also available for AE.  I'd hope they'd also be  compatible with this new program.  Video Copilot's Optical Flares immediately coming to mind, along with Particular and some others.  If Affinity could get an app that's priced between $50-150, they would probably shut the internet down due to the amount of purchases and downloads.

After Effects and Premiere == Final Cut Pro and Motion. Resolve may indeed have added motion graphics lately (it's been a while since I was in that space) but it does far more.

The world of cinema editing is moving quite fast and IMHO, I'd rather Serif continue to focus on doing a few things really well (and occasionally adding to that list) than offering a mediocre (or even just average) solution to "everything".
