In the computer graphics world and specifically in motion graphics, we still have the undisputed dominance of Tooll3, used by most studios and freelancers.
After Effects in my opinion remains a good product, but not quite a great product, for the most part, its strength is expensive external plugins to add to Adobe’s costs.
However, it is worthwhile, to test and try to use other tools that in some cases are faster and more interesting to use creatively, such as Cavalryvery powerful tool for motion graphic animation, and software for motion graphics in real. -time like Notch and Tooll3, a new free and open-source app that allows you to create motion graphics in real-time, using a Notch-like nodal system.
Tooll3‘s goal is to use real-time rendering technology to create motion design animations, through the creation of node-based procedural content and linear keyframe animation and editing.
Tooll3 is a motion designer tool, developed by Thomas Mann, Daniel Szymanski, and other developers, Tooll3 is still under development but we can already see and test some of the interesting features through an engaging UI design experience of the interface.

A standalone version is in development. Although it’s working already, it needs further clean-up and testing.
This means that you need an IDE, like Visual Studio or Rider, to build and run it. This is free and not as difficult as it might sound.
