Today, I will be downloading the trial version of Hype on my 2011 iMac. I’m not too crazy about the idea of purchasing it yet since my plan is to actually ditch Apple when this thing dies.
I, too, am a graphic designer / production artist and have been using Adobe products on both platforms for almost two decades. Having done Flash for years during that time, jumping over to Edge Animate was a piece of cake. I like cake. I like cake so much that when Adobe changed the name from Flash Pro to Animate, I couldn’t find it within me to go back to it.
I still use EA on a continuous basis on both Mac and PC. However, looking to the future, I understand that it’s days are numbered. I’ve been looking at other possibilities but Hype really seems to fit the bill. But again, I’m not staying with Apple for the reasons listed here and many of my own.
As for the idea that there needs to be more submissions to this thread to justify developing a PC version, I have to say, most people aren’t going to sign up to a site specifically to use a forum to submit a request…like I just did. You either offer it, or you don’t. And then we move on to find something else.
If you really want to know what people think, then add a box on your main page above the fold with a questionaire; “Would you purchase Hype Pro 3.5 for PC? Yes or no.” This current way requesting a PC version is convoluted and time-consuming. If it weren’t a Sunday and had nothing else to do, I wouldn’t have bothered at all.
