Great tool for creatives.Cons:
Insane price and/or broken business model.
A great tool for animators, designers and creative developers out there.
I would quickly change the business model or pricing especially in your early stages if you want to avoid losing tons of potential customers, it's either that, or it's waiting for one of the big boys to completely rip off your concept and have it incorporated in their software suite... in fact, I think It's going to be a simple matter of time before that happens, so your competitive edge is probably going to your first mover advantage that you have now.
Not a lot of people are going to pay 180 dollars for a half feature that costs more than a TWO year subscription of SketchApp or even the Adobe Creative Suit.
Edit: Im almost a 100% sure Airbnb is going to add this feature to their already free 'Lottie' design tool... so it's indeed a matter of time. For anyone interested: https://airbnb.design/lottie/Bader Bouta has never used this product.
Too expensive, no trial, requires player
Want to love this but you need a trial version or at least a lot more demos videos. And as many have already called out, make the pricing affordable for what you are competing against.
Offer some intro price or free version with a watermark or something. Add some templates or something to get people started.
Hope you listen to the community feedback, there is an interest...Dean Brady has used this product for one day.
