Unfortunately, I'm too much of a beginner with regards to PS brushes to give a good answer here. @Azzart were you able to adjust brush parameters in AF to get back similar performance? From what I can see, the brush engine seems to have corresponding parameters. AF can't import MP4s or SWFs like PS, but for still images, as long as you use PSD/PDFs, everything should still be inter-compatible. Yeah, I guess what I was trying to get at wasn't that AF could be a straight drop-in replacement for PS, but rather it has the blueprint to be a true replacement, and how far do you think it would be viable as an alternative right now? And how far do you think they have to go? The one thing that I think sets apart Affinity, is that the devs are actively trying to replicate Adobe's features set. For example they have Designer to replace Illustrator, and are about to release Publisher to replace InDesign. I would not be surprised if they had a AE/Premiere alternative on the roadmap. And they seem to be committed to sticking to the $70 CAD pricepoint for each product, which is quite commendable considering how much Adobe charges.
