I am sorry you feel this way but let me reassure you on the fact that your version of Animate will continue to work past this date.
The decision to move all of our animation products to the Harmony family was to make all our products would be compatible together. With the three editions of Harmony, we wanted to make sure every artist using our software would be able to use and collaborate with any other artists using any other software from us, freeing artists from the incompatibility between Animate and Harmony.
We currently have a very competitive upgrade price if you wish to go from Animate to Harmony Advanced. Even better, when upgrading to Harmony, you will be able to keep your Animate license, allowing you to run both if you wish.
We also have a conversion service that allows converting your projects from Animate to Harmony upon upgrade.
Thanks and let me know if you have any other doubts but emailing me at mabouvier at toonboom dot com.
