I'm thinking of becoming an animator. I mainly want to make videos similar to Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell, who make videos like this. When I searched for AE and Animate / Flash comparisons for flat design purposes, all the examples that came up seemed to be made in AE. I know that AE is more powerful, but I want to know if Animate / Flash, being simpler, can accomplish the same goal, since most flat animation seems vector based, which Animate / Flash can already do quite well. Before downloading either After Effects or Animate, I need to be sure which is simpler/easier to use for this type of animation.
What are the differences between the two applications specifically for animations like the one I posted?
(Edit) Also, assuming the main application doesn't have these features, would you recommend any complementary software for creating assets and such?
Thanks in advance.
