When we say "community" around here we are usually speaking about the motion design community but it is impossible not to discuss what is occurring with our communities at large right now, which like the pandemic, is affecting all of us. We want to voice solidarity to all of the people who are standing up for basic human rights and know that we believe every human being on the planet should be treated with dignity and respect.
While it might seem weird to keep doing business as usual, we feel it is important to keep moving forward while also acknowledging what is happening. In that spirit, we made a donation to EmbraceRace, a charity focused on raising a generation of children who are thoughtful, informed, and brave about race. If you have the means we highly encourage you to act or donate as well.
How we are doing
aescripts + aeplugins has always been a fully remote operation so we have been able to continue operating and fully supporting our products during this crisis. Most of our authors are freelancers or work in studios so their products have now become a much more important source of revenue. We expect to see full support and perhaps even a surge of new products in the coming months. This means that for as long as we are able to, we will continue pushing forward and are ever grateful for your support.
How we are giving back
As noted above, we made a donation to EmbraceRace, a charity focused on raising a generation of children who are thoughtful, informed, and brave about race.
If you are working remotely and do not have access to your licenses please open a support ticket and we can offer you some assistance.
If you are out of work and are not able to afford a license also please open a support ticket we might be able to offer you some assistance.
We are going to try as hard as we can to help as many of you as we can but please understand that we might not be able to assist all cases as there are quite a few technical and logistical factors that might not make it feasible.
Just know our heart and mission has always been to help this amazing community as we would be nothing without you.
Please stay safe, healthy and sane :)
