My question: Is there an alternative to Adobe Creative Suite for designers/enthusiast? The programs that I am mainly interested in is Adobe's Photoshop, Adobe's Illustrator (create vector art), Adobe's Flash (for animation), Adobe's Premiere Pro (edit video), Adobe's After Effects (VFX/motion graphics), Adobe's Dreamweaver (code HTML/CSS). But can boil down to a video editing software, graphics software and photo editing software.
I understand alternatives such as Inkscape is like Illustrator, Blender is a good substatue for Adobe Flash. Notepad++ for Dreamweaver but if you haven't noticed, these programs are from different companies. What I do appreciate about Adobe is under the master collection, I get all these programs, but I don't appreciate the price (because I cant afford) or the subscription model (I like to buy once and forget) they now have.
I search online and can't find something that packs in programs such as Adobe. Even if its just a photo editing software and vector software. I found CoralDraw but I'm so confused if they provide a master collection (collection of their software for a price) that will satisfy my needs.
Please help me, I am so confused.
