as a follow up post, here's a list of alternatives to adobe software. source attached.
@eightbitsamurai I ended up switching to Gravit Designer from Ai. They have a yearly sub but it's much lower than Adobe's.
@c0debabe i really like the affinity suite but yeah, gravit's good too imo!
@eightbitsamurai yo I never knew about davinci resolve, I've been wanting an AE replacement for so long.
@eightbitsamurai don’t forget that the alternative to Adobe Flash is ToonBoom, the industry standard.
@eightbitsamurai the entire adobe create cloud suite can be pirated too uwu
@eightbitsamurai kinda sucks that as a freelancer I have to have the software my clients do, and their industry standard is Adobe -_-
@eightbitsamurai Au missing Ardour, which is way better than Audacity, and also Non, which is the most lightweight DAW in existence.
Ardour can also sync its timeline with Blender (which, btw, is still seriously underrated).
Pr missing Blender since it has a sequencer with a bunch of add-ons and a really fast workflow, and VapourSynth for a scripted and very powerful video processing pipeline.
@eightbitsamurai I don't even know what most of those abbreviations even are, other than Ps for Photoshop and maybe Ae = aftereffects. Which one is Acrobat?
@eightbitsamurai If moving off of Lightroom, know that Lightroom edits are not visible to Digikam, Darktable, or RawTherapee. Be sure to export them to another format (I chose .tiff and exported them to a directory on my desktop, which I'll import once I've moved over my library).
